Captain's Ball? It certainly was!
Last weekend started the year of social activities for Club Captain, Graham Button and Ladies section Captain Ali Battle. With around 100 attendees the evening went by in a “blur”. So much so, it seemed one minute we were sitting down enjoying another fabulous meal from Donna and her staff listening to the singer to suddenly being told it was the last song of the evening by the DJ. What happened to the bit in-between?!
A great start to their social year I believe. Handicap Secretary Howard Smith won the German Impressionist Competition with his great attempt at Mr A Hitler. Anyone who didn`t agree he was a “spitting image” was going to receive a handicap reduction by Monday morning!
As good as his impersonation was, his “tipping” on football matches was shocking. Fancy expecting Belgium, fourth best team in the World to score 4 times against MIGHTY WALES in Brussels on Sunday? I know we had all had a couple of drinks by then but no excuse for expecting 4 against us! Congratulations to the organisers and especially to John Charlick who seems to have footed our tables’ drinks bill for the time being!!
The Auld enemy met again, England vs Scotland. Football's oldest international match played out again last night. Supposedly a friendly, not according to anyone North of the border (and plenty south of it too). Say what you will, whether it’s worth playing but the atmosphere was as good as any final could offer (unlike the football).What a great stadium, the players must have loved it. The result obviously mattered to a point but for the players, valuable experience playing in a powerful atmosphere like that.

Back with a vengeance…
I`m a Celebrity, probably the best of the worst reality shows. Some are already “playing the game”, like Jimmy Bullard, wimping out of a challenge and leaving it all to possible favourite Mel Sykes to do. As for Essex`s “entry” Gemma Collins, why bother? Two days in and she already needs to go! Of course she`ll be kept in to suffer a few trials before the inevitable happens. The ‘cast’ could be real fun this year so worth a watch for a while. It’s really the Ant and Dec Show, without them the show probably wouldn’t work nearly as well. The last 5 minutes of the show are always worth watching…what people will do for a few sheckles and a five star luxury hotel.
