I remember when you said us losing to Japan was the greatest moment of your life. I enjoyed that as well
It's a toss up between the Japan game or the Argentina game. 3rd place is the birth of my kids.

Mostly, for the women: pale skin, blue or green eyes, aqualine features, lovely accent, and more often than not, a nice big pair of tits.

Some of the blokes are ok too so long as A. You can basically understand basically what they are mumble basically saying B. Don’t talk about rugby C. They are not one of these chippy celts who hates all things British despite living here, working here, kids born here etc and D. Don’t talk politics

Mostly though , country is a turd and Henry 8th should never have bothered with it in the first place

If only we had made the video in black and white and put it all in a foreign language
Kid A would have got all pretentious and say it was the best bid of the year

Nothing personal. I wanted the World Cup in ireland but obviously was well aware of the politics. You turned your back on some demands and we turned our back on your bid. Pretty simple and no hard feelings tbf.

Been on that tour and came away with a certificate acknowledging my knowledge and love for whiskey as a certified Jameson's taster. :thumbup: Top people. Funny too.

I wanted to do that but they picked the three people before I made it into that area. It was a good tour, everyone should do it once in their life.
