Just got back from a couple of weeks in “Britain” Oh yes everything British in the last couple of weeks, England, Scotland and Wales have united:)
Britain is buzzing, the feeling of national pride during the Olympics was fantastic and has captured a nation!
I really never thought i would hear the day 10 grown men were talking about mens gymnastics in my local pub last week but, thats how its captivated our great country!:)
I popped down to Weymouth to watch the sailing, as most people know watching sailing is a little tricky, you either need some fantastic binocs, a telescope, x- ray eyes or a boat! Me and the family had none of the above:( But, what we did have was a beach full of proud british olympic supporters 2 huge screens one on sailing and one on all the other gold medal events we were winning;) a beach, and a beach bar:) Life was gooooooooooood!!!!
I know most people have heard it before but, just wanted to say THANKYOU BRITAIN, VERY PROUD TO BE BRITISH along wong with the other 66 million:)
Lord coe was right when he said London 2012 got it right!
Also without our armed forces helping out and those fantastic 70,000 volunteers who gave up their time for free, London 2012 would have got it wrong, THANKYOU:) (I know it sounds a bit anglo british and over the top but, if you were in our country over the last couple of weeks you would know what i mean!:)
Ok Back to biz, Cheers to Gaz, Sarah, Sash, Einar, Marita and Erik for looking after the Lions while i was away, top job!
It`s also been pretty busy, last week we had all the Swiss fans Servette at the pub and as i hear they were so nice.
Gaz said he would put them in his top 3 of best fans ever, thats high praise indeed from a Clarets fan:)
We are all ready for the new season, i love the start! All fans full of hope, talking it up, making predictions, putting bets on and most ending up dissapointed!
Pop down the pub this weekend for the start (anytime from the first 13.45 Sat (SUPER LEEDS) game to Monday 21hr game) we are having a fantastic prem prediction competition. It`s totally free just simply put the 20 prem teams in the right order!;)
If you do:) Three Lions will be flying you off to England with a mate, free return flights care of Norwegian:) Got to be worth popping down the pub grabbing a burger and having a go! GOOD LUCK:)
The student parties are already in full swing and the pub has many parties, quizzes, bar to bar, disco night, sports night and many more, look forward to meeting all the new students down the Lions.
