"What a wonderful English thing to do. Beats Football any day"

Really? In what way?

"In what way?"
Paper, scissors, stone. The arrow beats the ball by bursting it... I think:)

Didn't that law get repealed a while back when they cleared out the cupboards at Westminster?

but I'm not sure why you would say "...Beats Football any day".

The two are entirely different things.

stayed in a warners hotel once which had free archery, it was excellent enjoyed it very much,

as for football like most people grew out of it when I left school.

Why though? It's not about football. I don't like garlic mushrooms but don't feel the need to tell everyone in a totally unrelated thread.
