For the love of men and music

En-ger-land!

Sigh. While I do enjoy most aspects of my job, the one thing that I would gladly trade is the endless talk about football that I am subjected to. I’m not sure what it is about straight men in a social setting– but rather than discussing things of relative interest (state of the nation, what’s the point of Keane’s latest offering, will Paris Hilton ever actually launch her album?) – they seem intrinsically programmed to talk about football.

Now don’t get me wrong, I like a man running around in a pair of shorts as much as the next guy, but I certainly don’t understand the obsession for the game. Sadly, my relative disinterest makes it very difficult in a professional setting where the guys seem to equate masculinity with their ability to analyse to the endth degree the movements of the players and I’m sitting there trying to find an excuse to leave the room.

This is going to be a very difficult month.

Nice tunage there, but slight point of order, This Time was the England 1982 song, not 1971, that was Back Home.

I did think it sounded quite modern :-)

Tag corrected - and it's better than Back Home,

Oh. I really love Infernal, the lyrics on this are quite witty really. I hear they have done versions for lots of other European countries. Those I'd like to hear.
