    Good quotes for an American readership, too! This weekend is the biggest football game of the season, the Super Bowl. You may not care for American football, nor do I. I read while the family watches the game, coming to life for half-time festivities and commercials! 🙂

    As a loyal Newcastle United fan, I love Alan Shearer (still our top goal scorer!) 🙂 And I share his birthday.

    Thanks Tilly. SO much annoys me about football commentary I weary at the thought of posting about it. You have saved me the effort.

    I think these guys took too many head shots with the ball.

    And people complain that footballers aren’t that bright?

    ‘Sometimes in football you have to score goals.’ Thierry Henry. – I thought that was the whole point of the game!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
