It probably won’t surprise you that after saying I wasn’t going to watch too much football this week, I’ve done exactly that – it’s just too addictive. I did have a fairly productive couple of a days, going to look at some used cars and doing some recording in the studio. The band got their England song down and are busy making a video, trying to get it out before our game against Sweden tomorrow. They don’t know about this blog so I think I’m fairly safe in saying that it isn’t actually a very good song so I don’t think it will really go anywhere, but they had fun writing and recording it so I guess that’s all that counts. I will keep an eye on it though, just in case it does become massive.
Apart from that my evenings have been spent watching the five o’clock game ‘by accident’ – and when I say that I mean I’ve totally been keeping an eye on the clock and making sure I make my afternoon cup of tea for 5pm, so I can watch the football. When that’s finished it’s only an hour until the second game at 7.45pm – just enough time to cook dinner. I do feel a bit guilty for spending so much time watching football but then again, I enjoy it and it won’t last forever so why not.
I thought Portugal were a little lucky yesterday and I would have liked to see Denmark win it in the end. The last half an hour was really exciting and the Germany v The Netherlands game afterwards was a very similar match. I wanted The Netherlands to win that one too but that group is still all to play for – even The Netherlands, at the bottom on zero points, could still qualify. Exciting stuff for the weekend.
Anyway, I’m sticking with my prediction for the games tomorrow and I’ll definitely be watching both of them, without feeling guilty in the slightest.
