Draw distraction

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Glued to the radio ….
So old hat
Nowadays it’s the interweb
For draw chit ‘n chat

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s still auntie beeb though –
Picking up their live feed
Plus an insight
To another’s daring deed

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A century of centuries?
Means nothing to me
But India celebrating
As they break for tea *

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And misery –
For a legend of the swim kicks
A certain Aussie
Not making the Olympics **

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But all those breaking stories
Are really just noise
For what I want to know is –
The oppo for the boys?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 A certain Mr Breitner ***
Pulling out the balls
The tension is too much
It’s driving me up the walls

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Chelsea in the hat – – –
And out come Benfica
We avoid Barca & Real
So let’s shout ‘eureka!’

* Sachin Tendulkar has just hit a hundred centuries in internationals – a cricket world record

** Ian Thorpe, Australian swim sensation, fails in the Australian team Olympic trials

*** Paul Breitner, an old German (much respected) foe from the 70’s.

Didn’t matter who we drew really, all 8 teams have got to the Champions League quarter finals on merit.
