Feck Off Cup!!

5.13.2006

Every year the press and tv sports departments happily forget themselves. They forget that this time last year two teams came together to compete for the most prestigious trophy in the world TM and played out a miserable encounter with a smattering of goals and interest.

This year I refused to be sucked in. "No way," I thought to myself, "am I going to fall for the usual hype and subject myself the usual dour end of season fare".

Self confidently tucking in to a meal of comparative politics and Rationalist philosophy, I felt content. I had beaten the system and it felt bloody great. Switched on the telly while having a bit of a tea-break to the beeb. 93:41 Liverpool 3-3 West Ham. Just caught the replay of Gerrards goal.

Bollix.
