Women’s football (or soccer for those of a US persuasion): Always struggling to get away from sterotypes, prejudice and pre-conceptions, and then Sepp Blatter, the head of the world football organisation, FIFA comes out and says Let the women play in more feminine clothes like they do in volleyball. “They could, for example, have tighter shorts. I’m sure that really helps!
On a footballing theme, some of you may know that I still follow Grimsby Town (The Mariners), as they’re my home town team. They’re having a bit of a rough season, following relegation from Division One last season. The excellent Cod Almighty site has a very entertaining diary of the trials and tribulations of the team and their fans. They also produce much-needed ‘Grimsby Is Not In Yorkshire’ t-shirts .
Here’s hoping Town do well against Port Vale today.
