UEFA vs Rainbow

Zippy
Zippy

We’ve been all cultural over the last two days; yesterday we went to the World Museum in Liverpool, where I was rather school-boyish around the European Cup, UEFA Cup and the Cup Winners Cup, I thought it was a alright exhibition although Ruth pointed out, it was really an excuse for boys to show off there nerdy football knowledge. 

Today, we went all the way to Bradford, to the National Media Museum; which i can now say is a fab museum. Unfortunately we where 3 days to early for the blue peter exhibition, but the photo and animations bits are fab. but the TV bit is cool – not all all those pretend to be on TV bits, which are cool, but they had Zippy and George from rainbow! I have to say I was even more school-boyish, and very nearly got my photo taken next to them – it was the condescending looks from the teenagers that stopped me.

we watched the wombles too – Henry thought it was cool, although Daisy use to modern children’s TV didn’t quite give it all her attention, she did however, watch all of this wobles episode when we came home.

World Cup: Pennants

As is traditional for any international game, the countries at the world cup have been swapping Pennants before the matches. All very nice, but really isn’t it just an empty gesture, that no one really thinks about?

I think everybody should follow the example of Iran, who gave Mexico what looks like a Persian rug, framed with the flags of the counties in. Other countries should give gifts pre match that represent there country; I’ve no idea what we would give.

Bookem’

Rant number 43 of the world cup, when a player gestures to the referee that he should book somebody, they them selves should be booked.

the referee in the Serbia, Holland game agrees with me. As does Alan Hansen.

63 mins: Ognjen Koroman wins a free kick on the edge of the box but is booked after once again waving a pretend card at the referee to try and get an opponent yellow carded. The free kick comes to nothing. [bbc]
