Have You Heard The One About .........

It's dark. It's cold. And it's wet.

The weather I mean.

And it's a slow football news day.

So why not have a laugh instead.

Here's something to whet your appetite;

Football: A game consisting of 22 skilled players, one impartial referee, two eagle eyed referee's assistants and one stupid ball.

Teammate: Another person that you have to dribble around

Fans: Two sets of abusive referees

Offside: The Bermuda Triangle area of the pitch where "innocent" players are drawn towards.

Scoring: When 11 men spontaneously start dancing and kissing, regardless of any injuries, whilst 11 others droop like wallflowers

Striker: Faultless, overpaid, box hogging layabout who only misses the goal when he is fed a bad ball

Defender: Player who's function is to commit fouls just outside of the penalty area

Ball: Round object used by referees to entice players into committing fouls

Just a little something to cheer you up Georgie. Yesterday I was
a reverse Santa Claus for the day in our main shopping centre. The children brought me presents for some of the less fortunate in our society. To say I enjoyed it would be a complete understatement and to top it all it was my 76th birthday. A group of children brought me a cake and helped to blow out the candles. Now for the bit that you would have enjoyed. One young lad turned up with a Leicester City shirt on, complete with the Topps Tiles logo. I tried as a bit of fun, to get him to take it off and place it in the toy collection container. The answer was a resounding NO. His mother even said that sometimes he wants to wear in bed. How about that for devotion to the cause.?

I'm suitably impressed! Hope you didn't tell him Father Christmas is a Swindon fan though. I would have ruined his life!
