There are going to be a lot weddings, stag nights, shows and other events severely disrupted tonight as it seems the entire nation is determined to watch the rugby world cup final. Mrs P was meant to be going to watch a show, but will now not be going.
I guess no-one expected England to be there when the organisers set the date, either that or they didn’t consult the sporting calender. Mind you, some people have no interest in sport and are blind to the fact that other people are. In 1996 I had a conversation with one such woman who wanted to organise a public meeting on a Saturday afternoon which went something like this:
Me: “But it’s cup final weekend.”
Me: “But it’s Manchester United.”
Me: “Against Liverpool.”
I gave up at this point. It was a very short meeting. And Cantona won us the cup.
