5–0 at half time

5–0 at half time. And Scotland usually embarrass themselves against the Faroe Islands. This is just as well — we need all the goals we can get when, as Garry notes, we have a World Cup quarter finalist and both World Cup finallists in our group. And only two go through.

Political correctness, formerly known as placenames changing

Still being a cheeky youngster, it often annoys me when people use old names of things that changed ages ago. You know the sort of thing I mean — people who still say West Germany instead of Germany and the European Cup instead of the Champions League. Loads of people still say Czechoslovakia, which particularly […]

Big Brother’s Big Saviour

This year’s Big Brother has been a pile of old bum apparently. A bunch of the original housemates turned out to be possibly too ill. A series of stunts devised by the producers has backfired — the Golden Ticket housemate turning out to be an immense dullard, and the building of a “secret house next […]

Sæglópur delayed (+advert music, ITV’s F1 title sequence)

The new Sigur Rós EP, ‘Sæglópur’, has been delayed yet again. Which is a bit annoying. It was originally meant to be coming out some time in spring, but was delayed because of the belated success of ‘Hoppípolla’, with the single having to be re-issued after it was used on trailers for ‘Planet Earth’ until […]

I know next to nothing about football

…but I know that you shouldn’t step on somebody else’s nuts. Sorry. Err. I know next to nothing about football, but I listen to people who do know stuff about football. And I was told this. Germany’s players are too young and mediocre, and Klinsmann is an unproven manager Italy’s team is made up of […]

Wimblogedon

Apparently the craze sweeping the tennis players at Wimbledon this year is blogging. …for many of the players, the [rainy] weather meant the chance for many to turn to their favourite pastime — blogging. Is that a recipe for disaster? Usually when public figures and celebrities try their hand at blogging it is absolutely shit. […]

Flag burning is dull

Flags seem to be in the news a bit at the moment, particularly over that pond. Is there nothing more interesting going on? Obviously not, because I can’t think of anything else to blog about at the moment. Anyway, the World Cup has enough of an excuse for flags to be discussed in the blogosphere […]

They only just got in my good books!

F1Fanatic reports that ITV will be hiding the Canadian Grand Prix on their digital channels ITV4 and ITV2. Only highlights will be shown on ITV1. Perhaps ITV think that nobody will notice because of the World Cup. Well they are wrong. You would understand if there were World Cup matches clashing with the F1, but […]

It has nothing to do with the Union

I don’t know why some people get so upset about the fact that some Scottish people don’t like to support England. I find it funny how it has become such a big political issue. Some like to pretend that it shows that the United Kingdom is illegitimate and should be split up into separate nations. […]
