Mark#31 – Micro Machines

December 28, 2006

The guys are round in force tonight to partake in some multiplayer PS2 Micro Machines action. We’ve had over 75 races so far in what is becoming a truly marathon session. It’s enough to test even the most staminous of stamini.

Bongo and myself have dominated proceedings and have run away with the title by so far that Bongo has been able to leave early to watch the cricket, leaving me to play by myself (but I still haven’t lost a race!).

But the real noteworthy observation of the night is that Jake continues to prove himself inferior at every possible competition. I mean, I love the guy, but he really is rubbish. Poor Nige will give him a good kicking outside I reckon, especially as Jake has cost him a hospitality ticket to the Bolton-Portsmouth game this Saturday.

I’m getting married in less than two weeks, the sun is shining, and Everton have just stuffed Liverpool three nil.


Life is good.

Mark#11 – Sunday League Update: Turks Head vs. Bulls Head

September 3, 2006

Twice weekly I abandon April in order to join up with my Sunday League football team, The Turks Head.

Having won all three of our pre-season friendlies, we were looking forward to the start of the league season today, only to have our game cancelled at the last minute thanks to some thieving gypsies.

Undeterred, we instead had another pre-season friendly vs. The Bulls Head, who we beat comfortably just two weeks ago. However, today the tables were turned and we lost 2-1.

For a comprehensive match report (and to find out how the gypsies were responsible for the abandonement of our fixture) CLICK HERE to visit the site of my friend, team-mate, and fellow blogger, Mark Goodwin (aka Yonner).

Thanks also to Mr. Goodwin for the photo of todays action that I’ve ripped from his blog and posted below:

In case you haven’t seen it already, this is the horrificĀ challenge Man City’s Ben Thatcher put on Portsmouth’s Portuguese midfielder, Pedro Mendes, last night:
