Six Nations

With Wales-Ireland at 2pm, and Scotland-England at 5pm, blogging may be considerably lighter than usual. And possibly incoherent, depending on the precise Bombay Mix/beer ratio achieved through the course of the day.

I am English, and Anna is Welsh, so it's only on Wales-England days that we have any difficulty in watching a match together. That's why God invented second televisions, of course. Being English, I have to support England over anyone else, but if my own team are not involved, then it's Wales every time - a great team with a good attitude and (in patches) some remarkable playing ability.

So I'll be rooting for Wales at first (despite having a soft spot for the Irish), and England later.

Scotland? Well, they have supplied us with the vast majority of our dickhead politicians over the last 13 years, and haven't apologised yet, so - no.

Now - let's go.
