A friend asked my opinion on something last week and it made me smile.
It seemed that her Father in Law was on his longish annual visit and had washed out his underpants. They were then hung for all and sundry to see in the warm sunlight.
They didn’t have holes in them,neither were they “long Johns”. No ,they were very sexy thong type trifles favoured by some men and their partners, and certain to cause raised eyebrows or winks from the neighbours if put on view.
Now my friend had a bit of a problem with this, I must note that she is at least twenty years younger than I am which made me think a bit.
Her Father in Law is a scientists, over seventy,and with a figure that would make a lot of young men envious.
He is rather withdrawn and lives on his own, so his choice of underwear was rather unexpected for her,and what did I think?
I told her.
I wonder what you would have said.
It must be the Italian flair in their Spirit. But if Bellinzona, a Football Team from the Italian speaking part of Switzerland can’t match the Azzurros in their football the colour of their clothes certainly does.
Last night we quickly watched some of the match between Bellinzona and Xamax Neuchatel. Bellinzona won 4:2 after penalty shooting, and they will now be playing in the Swiss Cupfinal against Basel. As a Challenge League Club they will certainly have a bit of a fight but maybe in their clothes they will dazzle the eyes of the opponents.
I, at least could hardly believe mine as I saw the splashes of colour running over the television screen.
The Bellinzona players’ shorts and jerseys were PINK, Not Baby Pink, not quite Shocking Pink but shocking enough for the green field.
In Ticino they are apparently known as the “Granata”(Pomegranates)
I think we are certainly going to have a colourful European Cup in Switzerland.
