Some Rain Fell At A Football Match.

If you were unfortunate enough to sit through the France v Ukraine Euro 2012 match yesterday you would have witnessed commentators and sports pundits claim that the thunder storm which, suspended play for an hour, was of biblical proportions.

ITV’s Adrian Chiles, once expertly described as ‘a thumb in a suit‘ was on the brink of launching into an end of days rant such was the hysteria surrounding nothing more than some thunder and lightening which lasted only half an hour.

Of course with no actual football to broadcast for a full hour the cameras turned on the fans who, in typical sports fan style, made the most of the short lived inconvenience.

New Scotland Strip Inspires Us To Greater Defeats.

Here’s the new promo video for the latest official Scotland football strip this time designed by sporting giant Adidas.

We actually like the look of the round badge and stripes, there’s something very retro, almost 70s about it. The team of course are in action tonight against current World Champions Spain and need to match the Czech Republic’s result against Lithuania if they want to qualify for Euro 2012.

So basically our chances of qualification are about as realistic as a Roland Emmerich film. But we’ll never stop believin’.
