Most of my spare time since the Euro 2016 tournament started this time last week has been taken up administering the score predictions of the 128 members of the Prediction League in aid of the Home Instead Senior Care Bring Joy Foundation.
However, I think I can spare the time to jot down the 5 most memorable things – for me – that have occurred in the first week of the tournament.
Here we go..
England – conceding an injury time leveler against Russia and then scoring an injury time winner against Wales yesterday. Why can’t we just do it the easy way like the Italians do
Joachim Low – and that hand down the front – then the back – of his pants and then smelling his fingers. I have no words. Well very few.
Paul Clayton – TNF-legend and ex-Scunthorpe United, continually whining because his missus is knocking him, and every one else, into a cocked-hat in the Prediction League!
Cristiano Ronaldo – whining like a little baby – or a fully grown Paul Clayton – that Iceland didn’t play fair by not being as good as he is. Aw, bless!
The Bring Joy Foundation – benefiting to the tune of almost £150 thanks to 128 entries and some very generous donations
See you on the ice – Griff
