Sorry I went off again

Sorry guys, was away briefly, should probably tell you before I go. Anyway I still managed to watch Widnes v Whitehaven in a pub, on my own, getting strange looks for cheering as I appeared to be one of only 3 people in the pub watching.
Still glad to get a result and hoping we can march on to the final.

I was also shocked when talking to a guy down at the Union club I play at (boo hiss I know, I’m only there for the drinking and there aren’t any easily accessible league clubs nearby). I’m known to refer to Union as the amateur game and said something about that and he replied
“Weird how you say that when it’s the other way round”
Me : “What?”
Him : “Well Union being professional and League being amateur”
Me: “er no League is professional”
Him: “Oh right, how long for? like 10 years?”
Me: “Nope since about 1895”

I’m sure there are many of you thinking really you should have given him a slap, I’m shocked that people outside of Rugby League, especially someone involved with the other code wouldn’t know that! Still I’ll put it down to being as thick as Jade Goody and move on.
