The World Cup starts here

Never have I seen so many St.Georges flags flutter away around the Uk. The World Cup starts here, today and the entire nation is gripped by footy fever. Today I predict that most workplaces will be empty come lunchtime as the first game kicks off (Germany vs Costa Rica) and pubs will be packed out. Morso on Saturday as England go up against Paraguay. For just over a month with 64 games being played, football fans worldwide will be united by this one event. I feel so proud to see the flags flying everywhere, I really do. I just hope England’s squad reach the finals and win it for once – something I’ve wanted to see since I was a child, to see British hands lift that trophy…

One good thing has been the weather over here lately, HOT! Doesn’t describe it – I walked into my labs yesterday morning only to see the digital readout on my desk at a stonking 34°c/93F! It had hit 38°c/100F by the evening!

Yesterday was the hottest day in the Uk so far this year and as a person who rarely feels the heat on his skin, I felt it yesterday! Today I will be travelling to London on work matters for a meeting and I’ve no idea how I’ll keep cool given the conditions lately. As I type this early in the morning, the sun has just risen behind me…it’s going to be one scorcher of a day.

    Surely you were in Uni when we won it last time? πŸ˜€

  • “We”

    You weren’t even born so it had nothing to do with you!

  • Shup Pr! I have master plans about the world cup trophy….all shall be revealed soon. Lets say that a engrish man WILL lift the cup!

  • Alwight geezer!
    Missed you at the crown man. The place was well busy and the screams as that first goal went in was just defening.

    Second half performance was pathetic though man. People actually started leaving because it was so dire. Sack Sven!

    PS. I love that st.georges graphic you\’ve got at the top o the blog mate, you do that yourself?

  • Easy Mark πŸ™‚ Apologies for not getting back to ya, blame Taz πŸ™‚

    The game wasn’t bad, except my 4-0 prediction for the squad got shot to hell. Still got a long way to go though, and I look forward to seeing Rooney scare the balls out of the opposition tbh.

    That header image was done by me yeah mate. Took a few minutes. Grabbed myself a st.georges cross, resized it and then used to bubbles filter on paint shop pro to create and tweak some bubbles :mrgreen:

  • Blame Taz?

    oooooooooooooooh!!!! what did she do that kept you from the footie? πŸ˜‰

  • Hi Kami πŸ™‚
    I wanted to go for a swim at our local leisure center but darren can’t swim πŸ˜€ He ended up wasting money on the arcades for an hour πŸ˜›

  • Yeah, and I had a good time too! While you ogled at the lads swimming, I got to play some sega arcade football! (football being the thing we’re meant to be discussing here!)

  • lol, darren you will be like the green eyed monster soon with your fake tan in london, the smog will be like in china hahaha.
