Favorite word !

Michael Owen

My Father was watching the France-v-England football match last night. I was playing golf on the computer, so only glancing at the telly in between shots/holes.

I swiftly came to the conclusion that Fathers favourite word in the world of football, is ;


I must have heard this at least 40 times!

What is your favourite word?

Mine is a few words: Not even close! and: Miles off side!

Er. . . was he watching you on the computer when he kept saying "Pathetic!"?

Don't do football... plenty of milage with the Rugby these days boyo!

Thanks for the car boot joke, that's been causing much amusement on both sides of the Atlantic! (after converting boot to trunk)

Fave word - 'Seduce' the word itself is a turn on!

Dunno so much about 'word' John, but phrases, especially regarding rugby (soccer is for wussies) include:

You want my glasses ref?
That didn't hurt!

Other phrases include lots of swear words, which I'll resist adding!

Oh dear, Dear John

Association football is a sad loser here in NZ

We do Rugby Union (tedious yuk) Rugby league (not so yuk, but still too much)
Rugby Union Sevens/World Sevens - yummo - such loverly, lean young bodies

And netball - yes that non contact yet very violent game for women. About the roughest of the lot

'Bingo'. Most other words, you can work out their origins. Not that bugger though. Well, so far it's escaped me, at least.
