Typical comments from a non football fan thou.
But dont take it to hart.. just a bit of friendly banter.
Only friendly banter from me too (wink). Ok, you got me. I don't really like ball games (down Polly!). I am patriotic, but only to the point of realism. As someone who's travelled very extensively over many years, I've learned to see both the good & bad in most countries. I came to the conclusion years ago that there's no such thing as a better country, just whether it suits you or not. Also, never judge a people by the actions of their government. Sorry, got a bit serious there for a moment, but misguided patriotism is something I see as regularly getting in the way of the progress of human kind. Patriotism galvanised with a sporting event as the catylist is cool with me.
Come on England!
even if you are mostly crap.
Much more wholesome, & especially as this competition is taking away gigging opportunities; Drumming vs. World Cup?
