Don't know if anyone else ever reads this but it's quite funny today (mainly due to the bits from the Sun).

From todays column.

  • The Sun says that England's opening match against Paraguay on Saturday will be officiated by a referee nicknamed Little Dracula. Marco Rodriguez, 35, was given the moniker because of his likeness to a television character and after the World Cup he is set to star in his own cartoon in his native Mexico. Referees have been told to impose an absolute ban on jewellery worn by players at the World Cup.
  • English referee Graham Poll, told The Express, if players try to sneak on wearing rings, earrings or chains then they will be shown a yellow card - and may even be forced to have any rings cut off their fingers.
  • The makers of Subbuteo have told the media they are attempting to rush out a dancing Peter Crouch figure to cash in on "the Crouch bop".

Spanish daily 20 Minutos claims Nostradamus tipped Spain to win the World Cup. It quotes one of his prophecies as follows: "In the sixth month of 2006 the King of Spain will cross the Pyrenees with his troops. The legions of Beelzebub will battle him in central Europe and suffer doom and destruction. The Holy Grail will then come to Spain." (Press Association)

Did you know that "Bam" in German is Dong as in the bells. Once sang in a childrens choir for a Mahler symphony where we opened the fourth movement with a chorus of "Bim bam" which was "Ding dong".
