Keeping the peace during the world cup


Sometimes your significant other may get fed up with you watching the fitba,and palming her off with the usual “I got you that 12inch portable so you could watch yer shite”while you sit back on the recliner watching it all on your 50inch behemoth.May not work every night.

So my friends my tip is,one night when it is a sort of pish doesn’t matter game like Slovenia V Algeria ,get out there get a film and some treats and make a big deal about giving up watching the game so you could spend quality time together as a couple/family etc etc. 

I know it will be a big sacrifice but it will better in the long run. 

So here are a few films I have watched recently that both of you should enjoy. 

The first is this one. 

Good Film

Yes it is called Brothers, it is about a guy coming back from Afghanistan messed up and how it affects the relationships around him.I enjoyed this film and it suits women to as there is a lot of emotional stuff in it. 

The next film is The Road. 

Read the book first

This film is great but I would recommend reading the book first as it is better,and  as usual there is just more detail in the book.On second thoughts though as it is about the final years of humankind and about a fathers struggle to keep his child safe,it may not be the best one to bring home for a cheery night with the wife. 

The next film I watched last night. 

Di Caprio scores in this one!!

Great Movie,Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio,how could you lose with these two top strikers of the Film world on board. 

There are as many twists and turns in this film as Messi playing  in the 2009 Champions league final.So you have to keep your eye on the ball with this one.Great game,sorry I mean film. 

So there you have it,go on keep the wife happy rent a film.

  5. andy Says:

    big brother has just started here as well. i think there will be alot battered spouses this weekend.

  6. bingabinga Says:

    I understand McNulty but sometimes you just have to sacrifice.

    YMO The Road I can see where you’re coming from,as I say you have to read the book I think the Movie just adds visuals to a great read, it follows the slow pace of the book.I found it a beautiful yet devastating piece of work.
    Shutter Island I just liked It I thought it was a good story.The boy Dicaprio did good.

    Andy if my significant other thought BigBrother was more important than the WC she would be getting Divorced.

  7. yellowmagicobstacle Says:

    BINGO. In defense of the road i thought the little lad was a brilliant little actor.

  8. bingabinga Says:

    The boy was a good actor,I watched a film the other night called Candy it has the late Heath Ledgr in it,one of his earlier films,Very good it is about Heroin addiction set in Australia.

    whit about they fuckin horns at the world cup bingo!!! ban ban ban!!!!

  10. bingabinga Says:

    I think it would be more annoying if you were at the game,but Aye after hearing them at all the games they are a pain in the arse,It would be nice to hear some fans chanting or singing.

  11. Intifada McNulty Says:

    Ronaldo wants them banned.

    Therefore I don’t.

  12. Intifada McNulty Says:

    There are other things concerning me:

    like the non-booing of national anthems these days.

    What’s happening to the world? Is it alright to drop bombs on each other for money but not jeer each others’ tunes out of ‘respect?’ The booing of national anthems used to be a highlight for me, and Scotland were always fucking brilliant at it.

    I mean FFS, England v USA- the world cup final of booing, a potential jeeering extravaganza for anyone with any taste. But did you hear any? No! There wasn’t even so much as a tut! BOLLOCKS!

    I’d like to think if Scotland was there, even the namby-bamby Tartan Army would insult at least three nations before going home. And I’d expect nothing less for our own anthem. In fact, I’d gladly fucking join in.

    It pisses me off, all that respect for others nonsense. Nationlism is ludicrous and lethal and should be treated with the contempt it deserves.

    Was I the only person in the entire world booing the Serbian national anthem? Wouldn’t surprise me if there were thousands sitting at home tapping their feet to it, thnking ‘wow, that certainly gets the chest pumping. I quite understand why they might want to go out and commit genocide on their innocent neighbours.’

    Booing should be brought back. Tonight. In time for the North Koreans.

    And no country should be saved from it either:

    Japan? Whaling. And vending machines of girls’ knickers for fuck’s sake.

    Argentina? Extermination of an indigenous population.

    France? Hate you when you don’t speak their language. Hate you when you make the effort.

    Anyway, just a thought.

    It was much better when the Cold War was on,all the Eastern Bloc countries had a sort of menacing mystique about them,Although being the son of a soviet union sympathiser and spy,I secretly supported them.
    The only country now that has any mystique and craziness is the bold N Korea.

    Scotland should re-invent itself as the unfriendly nation starting at the Euro 2012 qualifiers.
