Galeforce


 
Monday night's gale: up at the Sailing Club, Hade Edge with the D of E team, where canoeing was cancelled...the Beaufort scale on the wall went off the scale and the rain was coming down sideways. It didn't stop us digging up wheelbarrows of muck and rescuing a bunch of toads (what do you call a group of toads??)

Sepp Blatter's Arse Has Its Own Facebook Site

 
Blog Post for Thursday 2nd June 2011:  Sepp Blatter aspires to be touched by royalty, just like Pippa......(as I recall, there was a lot of interest in 2011 about a certain part of Pippa Middleton. Julio Grondona was the President of the Argentine FA........
 
Wikipedia says: On May 31, 2011, Grondona said, "Yes, I voted for Qatar, because a vote for the US would be like a vote for England, and that is not possible. But with the English bid I said: If you give back the Islas Malvinas, which belong to us, you will get my vote."  In 2014 his son, Humberto, a FIFA official, admitted illegally selling on tickets for games at the World Cup in Brazil. On June 2nd, 2015, FIFA blamed Julio Grondona for approving, in 2007, the payments at the center of the United States Department of Justice investigation that led to the 47-count indictment against soccer officials and sports marketing executives. (Grondona died in 2014, aged 82)
