b2 (cant find the correct symbols)I agree - it's the hype and the fact that my local club refuses to fly a St Georges flag outside in case it might offend someone!!!!! It's a politically aligned club but open to anyone local.I wont be spending any of my cash there.
If you mean, will I be buying 2 cheap plastic, dreadfully tacky flags and embarrassingly adorning my car with them in the misguided hope that others will think that I am heroically patriotic, even though the flags are made in Chine, then the answer is no.
I did get the sunhat for the garden as they were cheap enough in Wilkinson. And the baseball style as a pressie for niece and nephew. They are not bad.
Will probably keep an eye on it, more so than the final Big Brother, which starts about now and really has had it, in my opinion.
I think the World Cup has been marred somewhat by the two road crashes over the last two days. British students were killed in one and Mandela's granddaughter in another, it is difficult not to associate the time and place of these tragedies to the World Cup.
If you are not into the world cup, I think it might be difficult to find a pub without a big screen TV tuned into it.
With all the hype, landlords are probably convinced that if they don't follow the trend they'll be left with no customers, so they will be out there now, down Currys getting the biggest screen they can (and take it back for a refund in 4 weeks time - ha - likely not)
