Heads Held High

Disappointing results on the pitch Sunday night as England fell to Italy on penalty kicks. Among the faithful in attendance was one Toby Young who was hangin’ with the WAGS. We get a firsthand report from Wembley.

And then we, uh… tackle the “Rainbow Dildo Butt Monkey” at the Redbridge Library. (Well, those are words we never expected to type…) and the PM says we’re definitely on our way out of lockdown on the 19th. Toby wonders if, when it comes to the vaccine, does James have his price?

As they near Culture Corner, Toby reveals that he is, in reality, the British answer to Tony Hawk.

This week’s opening sound is from England Manager Gareth Southgate’s post-match press conference.

    I liked the discussion of the football/soccer match since I thought exactly what Toby and James thought. I could not understand why the coach substituted the 2 young players in the last minute. Also that was one of the lowest scoring penalty kickoffs that I’ve seen. Usually one or two of the players miss but three was a lot plus the Italians also missed 2. Exciting game in the first 2 minutes, when Italy scored, and then the playoff. Sort of blah otherwise.

    Ugh. Soccer and pernicious vaccine nonsense. This one is not for me.
