I just watched some of the England vs Trinidad & Tobago World Cup game and at the end of it I understood why English supporters drink a lot. Even when England wins it is best to forget most of the game, something alcohol will help you do. And if England were to do less well (which they could have today) then the alcohol will engender a false sense of goodwill toward mankind. Maybe.
These thoughts were prompted by an encounter on Sunday afternoon when the Birmingham Flickrmeet group was joined by an inebriated fan who was still celebrating Saturday's lacklustre performance and no longer knew or cared to know which day it was. These one and two links will take you to group photos with said fan as the subject. I suppose he's back in the land of Ansells by now.
