The pleasure is to play, makes no difference what you say

I bet that Spain would beat France, and yet I was happy that France won. Why? Well I placed some bets at Ladbrokes on a series of matches forming an accumulater. I actually had 2 accumulaters running. The matches were for the 2nd round, and in the first i had wins for England, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Brazil, and Spain, and in the second bet the only difference was that I had a win for Switzerland instead of Ukraine.

So on wednesday I was watching the match between Switzerland and Ukraine, and was willing one of them to win, but as fate had it neither of them wanted to lose, and so they played the game out in search for extra time and penalties. Damn. Obviously I?d lost my bet, but I would?ve been really annoyed if all the other results had come up, and I?d been screwed out of a few hundred quid due to a boring draw.

So I was happy France won, as it meant my bet was way off, and I wouldn?t have won anyway.


On another note I?m entering a Uni football team into a league next year which means we need a football kit, which obviously costs money. If you know anyone that would be interested in sponsoring the team, and having their company name emblazened across the chest of some strapping lads around the South-East, and won?t mind sparing around 500 then get them in touch with me. Thanks.

    Five hundred quid for a team kit? Hmm..tell your sponsor you?re going to get quite a few team beers out of that as well! ;-)

    I?d be happy with any amount really but it really is that expensive.
