OH, BALLS!

 I have a ticket and pass for The Ryder Cup today. My husband was invited first, but has no interest in golf! So, he handed it to me and said, “Go!”. What he neglected to remember, was the children…. 

  I have my ‘Adopted’ one from 8.15am until 5.50pm, not mention the school runs later! Then, Drama class followed by Irish Dancing…..

  Is he doing this on purpose to torture me?”  I ask myself.

 The event is being held at the K Club in Straffan which is 15 minutes from my house. I am not a golf fan by any means, but these tickets are gold dust, they really are. This ticket is a ‘Full Corporate Package’, which means, Champagne all day, Morning Coffee with Danish pastries and muffins, a five-course silver service lunch with a selection of wines. Complimentary bar and Gourmet Afternoon Tea. So, whatever the outcome of the tournament, the experience alone will be very memorable.

 However, it’s not to be. So I will keep the ticket and I.P. for prosperity.

LISTEN TO THE WINNERS ANTHEM!

I really enjoyed that match. Very surprised Henry was taken off, though. Once every four years is just enough!

TONIGHTS MATCH

  With his deadly finish and elegance in the box, I think Thierry Henry is one of the game’s finest strikers. I’m not a keen football fan, I just enjoy watching him play. But tonight, Italy’s skipper will be standing in his way. Cannavaro I think, will give Henry a run for his money. France have outstanding individuals, but Italy  the better all-round team and if fatigue catches up with the French big hitters, Lippi could be celebrating a narrow win. I’ll watch it with my husband and a bottle of wine…

GOALKEEPER FRANCE Fabien Barthez

 

Could do better!

 

I’m not sure why I don’t like this Frenchman. He’s not the best goalkeeper I’ve seen. Just as well all the action was at the other end of the pitch tonight.

 (Looking forward to watching England playing on Saturday!)

‘Arfar’ (‘arfar horse)

We have only had Arfer since Christmas, but already he has done very well. He ran at The Curragh in May in the 1000 Guinneas and won by half a length………..
