Weblog: The football punter
Nostalgia and news will ease my three-day blues
SO Mrs B disappeared off to the sales first thing on Boxing Day moaning about the miserable way in which the Downton Abbey writers killed off some young bloke at the end.
I'll be honest, I was busy in the kitchen watching a compilation of Lionel Messi's 91 goals this year or 'washing up and putting the kettle on' - as she thinks it is called but I couldn't help but feel like the festive Scrooge as this could become a bit of a trend this Christmas.
After the Boxing Day action, we have to wait a whole three days until we see any more football on our shores which means only one thing - tuning into Premier League Years while keeping a close eye on any breaking team news that could affect my weekend punting.
Lets face facts, it's a disgrace the football isn't staggered so we have at least one televised game a day and there's nothing else to do but once again get smashed on the booze.
Anyway enough of this chat-chat already and get stuck in. Given the bitter taste in my mouth right now I think I'll start on the Tetley's.
