All,

 

Football (soccer) - at least for a while.  It's a smooth 37C here.  Football is played in front of a 20C telly. Not supposed to subside for 6 - 7 days.

I'm fishing Sunday coming, so will be asking our club members following the game on the bank on their mobiles (that's "Cell Phone" to you Phone!!) NOT to shout out the progress of the game (against Panama) during the matches -  Fishing & Football matches that is, for the benefit of those recording it on TV.

I combined both tonight. I was fishing the Thames while the Tunisia match was on, and could deduce the score from the shouts from the pub on the far bank!

All,

 

You're just dam lucky you didn't lay the same egg as Germany.  England looked like they were looking right past the game at hand.

The only times that I watch football is when England is playing a match in the World Cup, and even then I usually record it if Im going fishing as fishing always takes first place, and the waters that I fish are relatively empty of anglers when the World Cup is on TV.
