Football crazy

15 Sep

Somebody obviously was feeling a tad homesick (possibly drunk, who could say?) and simply had to tell the world of their affection for Zagłębie Sosnowiec, a football team. I somehow doubt that in the fair city of Sosnowiec there’s a wall celebrating Hull City Association Football Club but you never know. Speaking of HCAFC the owner wants to change the name of the club to Hull Tigers on the grounds that ‘city’ is such an “common” word. As you know Hull is a idyllic place with no real great issues to worry about so this has caused uproar and dismay among those who follow this ‘club’ and pay good money to watch a ball being kicked from one end of a grassy field to the other.
For those of you into 1980’s popular music combos this is on Grafton Street home to the Housemartins and later the Beautiful South.
