First the football now the cricket, then the rugby union this afternoon after playing the all blacks, why is this country so poor at sport ..?
I think we should pack it all in and just watch others do it....shocked_yellowshocked_yellowshocked_yellow

Too many armchair critics and not enough people out there participating would be my guess. waveysmiley

Did you? What did you play?

My game was netball - GK or GD.

I used to play football, inside forward in those days, played for Wilmslow Albions,
And the army, ah those were he days when you could run up and down the pitch.

I went on to coach Netball teams and run aerobics classes for children but all that stopped when I had my own child.

How did you become an underwater plumber ? I used to be an above water plumber.

Aww, Charles, I'd have thought that you, of all people, should have known the answer to that one. B*****y amateurs trying their own plumbing repairs would all soon be under water!nananana

Charles, I think of you every time I do a plumbing repair.

I have seen the modern plumbing junctions, where a person need only push a correctly-cut copper pipe into the junction or elbow, and it grips it permanently. I could manage that.

A clerk at the plumbing store pointed out that a short piece of pipe was stuck into every visual example piece, because people would stick a full-length pipe into them to see how well they would grip. Of course, the pipe could not afterwards be removed, so the piece AND the pipe were now worthless.:P:P:P
