I'm considering going to see my doctor, to see if she can put me into hibernation until the 14th of June, when the World Cup will be all over. I'll miss my birthday but, I've had a lot of those already.
I am glad you started this - I fully agree with you - I have seen those ridiculous St George flags flying on cars more in desperation than true hope! I wish they would have a special TV channel for those interested rather than the main channels.
Well, I shall be distracted by MotoGP this weekend followed by the Tour of Switzerland next week, a weeks holiday in Spain and back home for the Tour De France for three weeks. My wife certainly isn't interested in the World Cup so there will be no pressure from her, just as long as it doesn't interfere with her soaps.
... I will be dustin' down and reawakenin' the big telly in my bedroom 'cos some of the matches will be kicking-off at 11pm, but I'd best keep the volume down to a whisper 'cos I don't want to upset my neighbours, whose bedroom is on the other side of the 'party-wall'.
PS. Small wagers on a particular 'correct score' will help keep me interested.
