Twice during the second half I observed extended periods of waving, gesticulation toward the bench, other players. Then with ten mins to go himself and Lumley appeared to engage in an animated shouting match. Anyone any idea what was going on with the man?
I just purchased tickets for the fixture at Ipswich and, after printing out the details, notice that they are going to be mailed to my home address in Massachusetts. Which is useless as I'm in London from Thursday. Bought them through the Rangers Box Office, they are closed, as are Ticketmasters Customer Service, what does one do, try calling BO on Monday or email or...? Have details of tix printed and ref# so worse case scenario popping down to the club on Thursday might work. In an effort of full disclosure, they have been extremely helpful when I've fcked up before.
US v Italy, who knew Italy mucked about with this sport? I note none of the Italians seem to have Italian names, is there a secluded valley in the Dolomites populated by the descendants of escaped Waffen SS types? Riveting stuff.
....not a bad bloke, actually the first I'd ever encountered outside of East Anglia, but I came away rather confused. He claimed to have attended many a game at Loftus Rd, right back into the 70's and, at one point during our conversation, he jokingly apologized for 'their boys' causing aggro at our place! I assured him no offence was taken but that he should seek medical advice as he was showing early signs of dementia.
....off we go again. Bruins away to Washington, who I quite like actually, even more now that they prevented Las Vegas (oh the humanity), from making a mockery out of the game. Don’t expect much tonight but you never know, Caps started slow last year. Wish that ‘very important ‘ bloke on the ice would shut up though.
...haven’t been to Portman Rd since that night of mild excitement and giddy frivolity thirty something years ago. Bowing to your knowledge of the locality, what easy walking to the stadium hostelries do you recommend? Decent bogs a big plus.
