Over dinner last night I had a crash course in footballers whose names start with Ron. It began when Younger Son said that Ronaldo was probably the best player in the world.
'What's a Brazilian doing playing for Spain?' I asked.
Husband and YS looked at me. 'He's Portuguese and he plays for Man U.'
I was confused. 'Isn't he the one with the teeth?'
'No, that's Ronaldo.'
'Yes, they're Brazilian.'
'But one is bald is bald and podgy and the other has long hair.'
So now you know.
At the end of the European Cup final, when Barcelona received the trophy, the commentator commented on their shirts. 'Unlike most teams who have the name of their sponsor on their shirts, Barcelona has Unicef on theirs, and, instead of taking money, the club gives money.' Ah, isn't that splendidly refreshing?
