I know absolutely nothing about football but I believe congratulations are in order for the plucky English lady footballers as they have won, I think the European Championship by beating the Germans 2-1.

Apparently this was last achieved by the men’s team some 56 years ago in 1966 which from recollection was also our first major defeat of the Germans since 1945.

One has to be so careful as people are so easily offended nowadays, so I was surprised that the ladies team are called the Lionesses and especially surprised they are referred to as ladies as I believe one is not allowed to refer to pregnant women giving birth as women in case this offends any men who may be in the maternity ward also giving birth.

On the subject of men, I understand that the women’s football has become increasingly popular with men, especially since they changed the rules on women’s beach volley ball banning the girls from wearing skimpy bikinis.

Could the upsurge of interest from the male of the species in women’s football have anything to do with the alleged number of lesbians in the team, so now the ladies football fulfils many a mans fantasy, after all it’s football, played by lesbians who when scoring a goal rush to hug and kiss each other and then at the end of the game should they win, they remove their top and run around the pitch in their brassiere.

So, to sum up and to try to explain the sudden upsurge of male viewers, it’s football, played by semi naked lesbians, kissing and fondling each other, I could be wrong of course as I have to admit I know absolutely nothing about football.


About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.

  1. I probably know less than you do about football, although I understand that the ladies (if that is the correct way to celebrate them)[I believe we have to celebrate everything nowadays] , as I was saying….the ladies get up much faster than the men after a tackle!
