Given that A) the mighty Tiges have been thrashed again and B) there’s no Monday Sports Wrap, I can only presume Perseus is too busy weeping and banging his head on the fridge.
Therefore, as a service to you – keen TSFKA readers – I present my own, totally lame Monday Sports Wrap.
Some years ago, Mrs INH and I spend the weekend at a B & B on the outskirts of Geelong. One of the possible activities listed in the brochure was to “watch the Cats play football”.
Driving home in the car, the following conversation occurred.
Mrs INH: “You know, we never got to see the cats play football.”
Me (totally stunned as Mrs INH had never previously displayed the slightest interest in any sport*): “What!?”
Mrs INH: “The cats. We never got to see them play football.”
Me (the penny slowly dropping): “They mean, watch the Geelong Football Club play a football match. Geelong is also called ‘the Cats’.”
Mrs INH: “Oh. I though it meant the owners of the B & B had trained their cats to play football for the amusement of the guests.”
*This is a woman who took a book with her when I finally dragged her to a test cricket match.
