Bursting bubbles.


Although technically a draw, Vinomaker agreed that the USA's goal, in their opening World Cup match against England, was indeed the result of a disastrously poor display of goalkeeping. So, as a result of there not being a clear winner we settled on something domestic in the bubbly department by way of a compromise to meet the terms of last night's little wager.
To add insult to injury the wine was corked and ended up being poured down the drain.
I demand a rematch!

Better to get the duff match out of the way early, that's what I say. And it's raining here Vinogirl! Wonderful Summer rain - my tomato plants are dancing with joy!

"Technically a draw". TECHNICALLY a draw? It was a draw: non-technically, factually and absolutely. America DIDN'T win.....

(Mind you, it felt like a loss on this side of the Atlantic!).

Thud: I hope so, my reputation at work is resting on it!

Ron: I hope you're are right!!!

Affer: No, thankfully they didn't win, but they didn't need our help in getting the 'technical' draw!

2B, I'm sure you were both very happy with the result four years ago then.
Poor England need help!
