gotta love over 35's football (soccer).

almost none of the guys are there for the game. they are there for the pissup afterwards. 3/4 of an hour after the game, when the last of the opposition had left, we still had enough guys left to field a full team, plus 1 sub.

which probably doesn't make us the smartest bunch of bastards, but we don't seem to particularly care. i've laughed more tonight than i have for the entire week i reckon. they're all taking the piss out of each other, themselves, and the fuckups on the field that you had to see to believe. our goallie was arguing with one of their strikers when the ball dribbled past him into the back of the net.

the opposition started pretty serious, and they had a fairly serious half time team talk, while we got onto the usual talk of sex (like any of us are getting any) racing (who backed a loser this week) and taking the piss out of each other. but by the end of the game they had relaxed and were enjoying the game and the beers afterwards.

and it was fucking freezing! i know i've acclimatised to the coast. when i was a young tacker, it was a lot colder than this. but still, i was cold. probably didn't help holding those cold beers and laughing my arse off though...

sport, it's just a reason to sink beer :-)
