No I bloody didn’t !
I’d tuned in TV7 and got a good picture of …. loads of little guys trying not to fall off big bikes. Ok, that finished and what did we get for our Sunday night entertainment?
Shootkiller, a cheapo kung fu death match sicko Z-movie, that’s what.
I logged onto to BBC Radio 5 Live via the website, only to discover that, for ‘contactual reasons’, live commentary was only available in the UK. So what’s the use of having a World Wide Web?
I eventually got the updated-every-two-minutes link via the BBC’s Charlton page.
And what was the score? Middlesborough 0 Charlton 3, that’s what and Charlton are now one of only three teams with a 100% record and an unbelievable six, count ’em, goal difference, second only to Chelsea but with a game in hand. What’s more, they are winning courtesy of some gloriously kaleidoscopic passing and movement.
So, in spite of missing the pleasure of instant gratification, I’ve had a smile on my face all day and a new determination.
A determination to fork out for one of those new-fangled satellite dishes so I won’t miss out on our further glory.
