aermacchi

finally sorted the 'macchi today, after yesterday it all seemed to be slipping away from us, i woke up early, i just knew i had to get it nailed today, down to roy's, viny's sorted, [we are running traditional green numberplates until the bike is sorted properly, then we will run with the full fairing], timing sorted, checked all the fasteners, robbed the kill-switch off the sporty and wired that up, just got to add oil and fuel and tomorrow?, well, tomorrow should see us pushing the bastard up and down the road to try and start it....

football

you really couldn't make it up, even the most die hard rams fans were predicting a dicking at the hands of our east midland rivals leicester city, this match has never been a 'derby' match to ram's fans, just an annoying team from down the road, [leicester's derby match is against the struggling coventry city who are facing a winding-up order from the stadium owners, excuse me?, it's a football stadium, ok, you get the occasional rock concert there, but, first and foremost, it's a football stadium, why do the owners of the ricoh stadium try and force a winding up order on their source of income?, fair play to coventry city football club and their fan's, even if you have to play on the local recreation ground the real fan's will be there supporting you and hopefully the 'owner's' of the ricoh will be left with an empty stadium] anyhoo, back to the plot, leicster need to get promoted to the premiership this season, they have spent a massive amount of money on player's, the wage bill is huge and expectations for automatic promotion huge, shame then that they are rapidly dropping points and their season seem's to be taking a turn for the worst, derby hadn't beaten the foxes in the previous five matches, we were without a win in the previous eight games, leicester needed the three points to keep their promotion hopes alive, derby needed the three points to stave off the fear of relegation to the third tier of english football, richard keogh rose to head home jamie wards free kick to give the ram's a goal advantage, derby struck again a minute befor half time with on loan player chris martin, [behave, not the nerdy bloke who sing's with the beat combo coldplay!] heading in from close range to give the rams a deserved two goal advantage at the break, leicster managed to get a goal back early in the second half but the rams managed to get the win even after a ridiculous six, yep, six minutes of extra time, where did the official find that from? i have my suspicion's that it was to pad out the sky tv coverage? but, by far the most satisfying moment was when me and the boy jack were walking home after the match, i decided to give my foxy mate merv a quick ring, 'ey up foxy, hope you and the rest of the banjo-playing in-bred's are crying at the result!' 'sorry timmy, you're breaking up mate...' football, fucking brilliant.....
