Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 331 – Is it Coming Home? Part 2!

Come on, England!

Most of England, today!

Spidey and I apologise for having football hijack the post again, this week, but, come on, who could blame us?

England are playing in their first MAJOR football tournament final, since 1966!

So, you know I am not that interested in sports. But, on Wednesday, I ended up spending 120 minutes of my time (plus injury time) watching the semi final against Denmark, on tenterhooks, along with most of the nation. I actually had a book in my hands, but didn’t read more than a few pages.

Even my colleague who HATES footy with a passion ended up joining in with our WhatsApp group chat, as we second guessed how the match would end.

And, as you all know, it ended in our favour, with a 2-1 win. (Not without scandal, though, as the England team were fined £25K for the behaviour of their fans, jeering during the Danish national anthem, and allegedly pointing a lazer beam in the Danish goalkeeper’s eyes during a penalty. What a shame a team who has done us proud has to bear the scars of a bunch of nooligan fans who are hell bent on causing trouble!)

So, I hyped up my class the next day, because, if you remember, we have England as our class team, in the school sweepstakes. Sure, there are some kids who have no clue what I was going on about, but we have some die hard fans, too, who were so excited!

And on Friday, as we left, I popped on the Three Lions Song and we all sang “It’s Coming Home!” together.

Who knows.

What has made me giggle, though, is that some people have asked the Government for Monday to be a national Holiday, because they fear the amount of people who may not even be in work, or school, due to a late night filled with drinking, shouting at TVs, celebrating (or commiserating) and the inevitable hangovers!

Still, tonight we find out whether it is actualy coming home, or popping off to Italy, instead. But, we are definitely hoping for a positive result, in our favour, of course!

So… tell me, Team England or Team Italy?

namaste

Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

    I am glad you entered the fun, Ritu. I am not a sports fan but times like this have a catchiness about them.

    Sports has a unique ability to unite us all – or divide us as well! Best f luck to you and let’s see how many people make it into work should you win!

    I don’t know how it will go , I can hope, middle lad is coming round for dinner and to watch the match with his Dad. Goodness knows what eldest son will buy this time! Youngest son will no doubt put the children to bed early though I hop the eldest might stay up for a while 💜💜 ps I remember England beating Germany in 1966!

    This is one event that brings people together even those with passive interest. Football in England is important to the national identity. It’s something you can converse over with friends when it’s all said and done.

    Of course, I would love to see England win BUT before the EM started, in our family betting game, I already said that Italy would win. Now I am soooo close to winning the whole betting game…hehe.

    England, of course. I’m learning Italian and know a few Italians online. We’ll doubtless be having some interesting conversations tomorrow.

    We have everything crossed around here! I cannot believe how many people were in that stadium, whatever happened to social distancing?

    I mustn’t be enthusiastic and not cheer. Sis you understand why? Lol
    Since Germany’s lost game, there has been a heavenly peace here. 😉 I wish England every success. You really deserve it. Have a nice day! xx Michael
