Ox and Oz - A Dream Pairing

So Arsenal are through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, and this American could not be happier.

My man-of-the-match was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. We wears number 15, with "Chamberlain" across the back, and I typically refer to him as "the Ox."

Ozil scored the opener and had an assist (for the 4th in a 4-1 victory at home against Everton), and both Daniel Taylor and Barney Ronay of the Guardian focused on Ozil in their latest pieces. Those are my two favorite writers for the Guardian (David Hytner would be third, I guess), and the Guardian is my favorite resource for football writing by some distance, with only Arseblog and ESPN FC offering any real competition.

Point being that the Ox and Ozil are both awesome, and that their names can be abbreviated Ox and Oz.
