Was there rugby in Leicester today? There was an awful lot of cars around when I tried to drive to the school where my church meets so that I could help set some stuff up. I think they should provide some sort of bulletin informing us of when games are for residents who have no interest in sport. The week before last I had to drive past the bowl of crisps (except they decided not to call it Walker's bowl in the end, so that doesn't work and it's the Crisp stadium, which isn't nearly as fun) which is quite near my house, so I was driving past and noticing a lot of parked cars, guessed there must be something on, but didn't know when it'd finish, there wasn't like a big sign up telling you when to avoid driving round there, it turns out it was Leicester Vs Leeds (oddly I'd even heard Chris Moyles mention the match on the radio that afternoon, but it was sport so I wasn't paying attention) and they finished just at the time I was leaving to go home, so I had to contend with fans walking all over the main road, seemingly oblivious to the traffic, with those that did notice cars looking at me in amazement as if I am driving on the pavement or something.
Quite often I manage to time things completely wrong so that I'm trying to drive past the stadium just as there are loads of footie fans there. Once or twice when they've got a rugby game on at the same time as the football its been completely mad trying to get anywhere round the area.
Random Observation of the day:
On my way home from work there was a whole load of sand poured over the road, I can think of only 2 plausible explanations:
- A giant had been sick and so someone had come along to clean it up (well that's what they do at school isn't it? Put sand down on the sick)
- Someone has decided that it's not fair that Leicester is so far from the sea and has decided to build a beach.
If 2 is true then I may find it difficult to get to work tomorrow unless I get a hovercraft.
