The New Testament records that St Andrew was the brother of Simon Peter, by which it is inferred that he was likewise a son of Jonah, or John. He was born in Bethsaida on the Sea of Galilee. Both he and his brother Peter were fishermen by trade, hence the tradition that Jesus called them to be his disciples by saying that He will make them "fishers of men" At the beginning of Jesus' public life they occupied the same house at Capernaum. 

Yes, but Could He Play Football?

I think not.

So I admit it—Arsenal up 1-0 against the run of play after the first half and I am like— screw it, hit the Tivo button and shoot down to the health club figuring I need the work out more than I need to be watching an up to then rather dreary game.
So I have the Blackberry Storm set to refresh the game off the ESPN feed and I proceed to see another 5 or 6 goals over the next 20 minutes. I thought the thing was broken.
Although it ended 4-4, Andrei Arshavin scored all the Arsenal Goals at Anfield. He will now be referred to from now on at St. Andrei of London. Hey there were a lot of things Arsenal did wrong last night—and I will let others focus on that, but this guys performance was simply incredible.
