Questions About Upton Park

Man U at the Bridge

What is the best relatively inexpensive way to get one or two tickets to one of the three Premier League matches in London on 26 April, preferably Chelsea - Man U? It appears that my choices are Chelsea/Man U at Stamford Bridge, West Ham/Newcastle at Upton Park or Spurs/Bolton at White Hart Lane. Obviously, I want to go to the first. (I'm a long time Man U fan and this seems like it might decide, or play a part in deciding, the league.) A few reputable-looking places have a single ticket for about 400 pounds. Do I have any hope of finding one any other way for cheaper? While this would be an amazing match to see, at that price point I might just go see Spurs for less than half of that. Is this the kind of thing a concierge at my hotel could help me with? Are there any tricks to finding cheaper single tickets? Are their any reputable sites where I might buy directly from a fan? Given the proximity to the Champions League semifinal dates, how much do I have

What would you recommend to read?

I'm 13 and a freshman in high school, and we get to choose a book to read and do a project on (go over symbolism and characterization in the story, make thematic connections to other novels, etc.). I love reading and I don't mind long books, and some of my favorite genres are mystery, adventure, and any book with dramatic turns and climaxes. I adore Harry Potter and it's one of the few books I've read over and over, and I like horror stories as well, anything that grasps your attention. I'd rather hear an opinion about one of them rather than read the summaries and be exposed to spoilers. It is a quite extensive list. Our choices are the following: The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy Atonement by Ian McEwan The Awakening by Kate Chopin Beloved by Toni Morrison Benito Cereno by Herman Melville Billy Budd by Herman Melville Black Boy by Richard Wright Bless Me, Ultima by Ru

Does Upton Hill Regional Park in Arlington,VA still have a lap pool for swimmers?

I need to know because I want to train for my high school swim team over the summer and it'd be cheaper if I bought a summer pass, but if they don't have a lap pool, then I'd be wasting money. I know there are two slides, a kiddie pool, and a giant bucket, but I am wondering if they removed the lap pool like they removed the diving pool a couple years ago.
