Watched my man parking off in front of the TV on Friday, eyes glued to the screen. I dissected him visually like some kind of foreign species – who is this stranger in my lounge?. His thing is (or used to be, rather) rock climbing and paragliding. But he was totally into this opening match, jumping up, doing punches in the air – the whole shebang.
“Do you like soccer more than you do rugby”, I asked without feigning interest.
“Not really”, he answered.
Which lead me to the conclusion that, like many others, he has been bitten by the 2010 Soccer Bug.
