A new life at 67.Can a woman start all over again?

What I like about women is that we can adjust to any situation. The survival instinct is born into us and we are completely adaptable if the situation arises.
In Europe the situation is here, and the only way to exist in it is to go by the old adage;

“If you can’t beat them, join them”

You see the EURO 2008 will be starting soon and Europes men are suffering from Football Fever.
In Switzerland where many of the matches will be held it has reached endemic proportions, and there is absolutely nothing we can do to beat eleven men chasing a ball that they can’t even pick it up.

That is why we will have to join them if we don’t want to spend a very unhappy couple of weeks.
The Commercial College near us has also seen the problematic.
They have now invited Manuel Navarro,a Fifa referee to give a course on the rules of Football for women. Worth checking out I think.
At least we can join in a conversation,-and an offside is not always an offside.
We wouldn’t just have join them,it seems we could even know better.

It makes the EURO 2008 almost acceptable.


Comments on: "Offsides and Free Kicks" (8)

  1. I’d just like to speak up for the man who doesn’t get a kick out of football.
    Yes, singular. I sometimes feel I’m all alone 🙂

  2. Anthony,I always knew you were very special but you are probably one of a kind,I have yet to meet a man who didn’t stop and look if a match was to be shown anywhere.
    I might of course have been more interested myself,but England (Oh! the shame of it)didn’t qualify.

    You don’t know what an offside is? Where have you been?
    Allgemeinbildung, no?

  4. Hi Spaz,it seems even the footballers themselves don’t always know.Maybe someone will explain.

  5. I’ll be watching the games as well here in the States. Since most people in the U.S. don’t even know what football is (they call it soccer here) and don’t even care. I could really use some football experts to educate or at least excite my friends about this game.

  6. Leafless you now have a new aim in life.Back to the roots for US sport. Football and Rugby.
    So who will you be cheering for.?

  7. I pick Portugal to go all the way. My second choice is Germany.

  8. I just came throughout this great web site and need to express how grateful I’m to you for sharing this fantastic understanding.
