World Cup 2018 Including Patio Chair Sweepstakes

Postby vanpeebles » Sun Jun 10, 2018 9:10 pm

Not long now until the start of the World Cup! Will you be watching? Is your country in it? If not will you be following someone else?

As part of the fun, following on from my theory of that, why when there is trouble at football, why do you always see those one piece plastic patio chairs flying about. On what day of the tournament, will we see our first patio chair being thrown about?

I'm going to say on the 5th day!

Evening.

Will I be watching? Good god no! I loathe and detest football, all ball sports, and runny, jumpy, throwy stuff too. Athletics! I'm only interested in sports that have engines. But not all of thoseveither, tractor pulling and Nascar leave a lot to be desired.

Is Scotland in it? I have no idea! Is it? Anyway, if not, I shall pass up the option to follow some other country.

Regarding patio chairs, who brings those to the stadium? I think there would be less trouble if the authorities arrested everyon turning up with a patio chair to throw! ;)

Good luck to whichever team you follow. Well, maybe not England!!!!! (Ducks and runs!) Should I mention the cricket that was news on the BBC tonight? Perhaps not. :D

Russia doesn't have Patio Chairs - They tend to throw 3-feet logs around.

Whenever that is!

Thanks, the first person to give me a proper time! Day 3 is the 16th of June.

After a lot of computation involving spinning tapes and rows of flashing lights, I reckon the earliest time that England could play Russia is on the Wednesday 11th of July, that is 28 days time.
