Global Village


I am not a season ticket holder at the Emirates Stadium, but I also lived, loved and enjoyed the 168th meeting between North London rivals, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, today.

When Arsenal was founded in 1886, no one could have guessed the technological marvels that would enable me in 2012 to experience the FA Premier League action in glorious hi definition, in my living room, live, half a world away.

Together with England caretaker manager, Stuart Pearce, (he in the VIP seats, me on my couch) we both applauded the fantastic skills of 22 superb athletes.

Stuart, you might have focussed more on Scott Parker( red card and all), Theo Walcott (and his 2 stupendous goals !) and Kyle Walker, whilest I was mesmerized by Luka Modric and Robin Van Persie.

Honours even at half time with 4 brilliant goals…and I have to re-fill the biltong bowl and get something frosty from the fridge. Hope you enjoy your half time tea and scone, Stuart.

Well done Arsene Wenger, your half time talk, sparked Arsenal to an epic 5-2 victory.  I don’t know about you Stuart, but I thoroughly enjoyed the match.

Safe journey home, while I take the dog for a quick walk before settling back on the couch, ready for the Carling Cup Final !! Vamos Liverpool !!

…and if all that is not enough, I will barely have time for dinner and taking the garbage out, to be ready before  the red carpet parade starts, leading up to the Academy Awards…and glory for Meryl Streep, I hope !! Me a couch potato ?? NEVER !!!
