Minor panic about brother’s safety over. But wtf is this all about, like? Looks like I’m going to owe someone a paperback.
In anticipation. Update: I meant to come back to this to write my thoughts about Liverpool’s loss/win over the minnows that are Total Network Solution, but nothing. Nada. Not one spark of inspiration. Instead, I was engrossed in the annual saga of “Will he stay or won’t he?” that has involved every home-grown talent from […]
I know I said don’t mention the cricket a few posts ago, but I just had to put in my 2p worth. Bleeding neck! What’s wrong with Australia?! For that matter, what the [bleep] is wrong with England?! When I first woke up at 6am US Pacific time, Australia was all out for 196. First […]
From BBC news: Dundee United to lose top striker. I cannae believe the SPL has so much say over who can and cannot get a work permit to play footie in Scotland. And that they claim Jason Scotland is “not of the highest calibre”. He is Dundee United’s best player, for crying out loud! And […]
Howzat?! Results so far of the NatWest Series ODIs: one (expected), two (unexpected), three (unbelievable). Is this the new Aussie strategy for reverse psychology before the first test in 32 days? Technorati tag: cricket.
Improvised Originally uploaded by framboise. This hasn’t passed me by. Oh no. It’s just that Doctor Who completely took over this evening and I haven’t had a chance to let it sink in. Plus, I thought it was a very belated April Fools’ joke. Australia can make all the excuses they like, but this day […]
From BBC news: Liverpool get in Champions League. I’m obviously not a true-Red ‘cos I think UEFA has been very generous in not only giving Liverpool the chance to defend their Champions League title, but also seeding them (though not going as far as putting them in the group stages). Now, a true fan would […]
The best team in Europe, 2005! Originally uploaded by framboise. I cannae believe it! Liverpool have done it! Despite all my earlier pessimism, I’m on cloud nine. Even the prospect of a dull afternoon being interrogated at US embassy tomorrow was forgotten for the duration of the game. Du-du-du-dudek! Du-du-du-du-du-dek… (repeat ad nauseum) (There’s a […]
Some inane conversation pre-FA cup final: P: “What’s the Prince of Kent doing there? What’s his function in life?” D: “Well, isn’t she some royal dignitary who opens schools and stuff?” P: “No, it’s the Prince, her husband.” D: “Who’s he?” P: “Excatly. He turns up to Wimbledon and stuff.” D: “Are the proper royals […]
Too shocked to talk about it. Four times. And despite the efforts of waste-of-space-Freedman and Andy Johnson… Who’d have thought WBA would win their final game? Sympathies to Norwich too; what a way to go. And as for Dundee Utd, P ain’t happy. Relegation looms after countless seasons of near-misses. It’s total silence in the […]
