What was the name of the white horse in the famous FA Cup final between West Ham United and Bolton Wanderers?
Whilst you are thinking about that one or even looking it up on Google. I thought I would share with you a few of my thoughts on sport. I know that not everybody lives on a smallholding or write books. So where do we begin?
Well there is the Olympics in London this year. How many allotments have been destroyed in the making of the Olympics village? Will they be showing the tiddly winks and shove ha'penny heats? I once walked passed Radio Rentals during one Winter Olympics. One of the shop assistants was doing her Meg Ryan impression (When Harry Met Sally):
"We've won a gold. We've won a gold!"
Great Britain had just won a gold medal for Curling! What's wrong with Curling? Nothing. What about Conkers or Welly Throwing? I call it but I bet I will be there watching it like everybody else!
Another thought about the Olympics. Why do they have: Gold, Silver and Bronze medals? Why stop at just three kinds of metal? What about Aluminium (do only the Americans pronounce it proper?) or even Tin? Do you think the Olympics is a waste of money?
The white horse at the FA Cup final was called: Billy!
Time for a very old joke.
A white horse walks into a bar. The landlord says:
BARMAN: "Hey Mr horse. We have a whiskey (White Horse) named after you."
WHITE HORSE: "What Eric?"
Next time. I will write about good old Football. Congratulations to Sir Christiano Ronaldo for his sixth hat-trick of the season!
