The World Cup Starts



I take the bus today to save the battered old legs for squash. Then I find out that my opponent is away in France and won’t be popping back for tonight’s game. So that’s another training opportunity missed although in this case another day off might be a good thing.

It’s also chance to watch the World Cup which starts today. Hosts Brazil open up against Croatia although I thought the holders were always supposed to open the tournament. The pre-match build up is dominated by clips of opening game shocks which are all the holders being defeated...

Brazil are far from convincing but get away with it aided by some very dubious refereeing.

The battle between BBC and ITV for supremacy also starts. The first contest is who has the worst theme music. That's a dead heat, they're both awful.
