Looks like I missed this internet phenomenon. Really made me laugh today though.

One of the reasons for my blogging constipation recently is because last week was ‘FIFA Friday’ – an annual event on my calendar which involves the release of the best football game ever – FIFA Soccer. The latest edition, FIFA 10, was highly anticipated by me and has failed to disappoint.

Most of my time has been spent on ‘manager mode’ – the primary single player section of the game. It is very hard, although selecting the highest difficulty level (Legendary) and the lowest ranked team available (Torquay) didn’t help. I consequently moved onto Burton Albion, before having a longer spell at Nott’s County, which resulted in me being sacked for not winning the league midway through the season. All very frustrating, but I refuse to play on an easier level.

Then there is the multiplayer option. Last night I played fellow FIFA-fanatic, Doug, from work. I picked Leeds, while he represented his beloved Bristol Rovers. It was a hard-fought affair between two of the dirtiest sides in the country. Across just three matches, there was around 15 goals, 2 red cards and a lot of cussing via SMS.

This evening, I decided to play people I had never met nor heard of from all over the world, in what is now regarded as socialising in the modern, digital world. Two annoying aspects about playing ‘randoms’ (if that is the correct term) 1) They always pick a 5-star team 2) They quit if losing.

I managed to find two opponents who, while sadly still kept up the trend of annoyance ‘1’, picking Inter Milan and Real Madrid; didn’t quit, despite me beating them 7-0 and 3-1 respectively. I then when on to play Arsenal. The connection to him was coincidentally lost after I scored an early 3 minute goal. Personally, I think I was playing Sir Alex himself.

Hopefully I will blog a bit more about non-FIFA related issues over the next few days – if only to stop my blog being blocked by the webfilters at work again as a ‘gaming site’.

The first rounds of the 2009 ICC were held in the office today.
Joffre began the tournament well, overcoming me, by smashing the string. The conker may have remained in one piece, but rules are rules, and I had to admit defeat.
His great start was later thwarted in a shock defeat to ICC ‘minnow’ Chris, who victoriously destroyed Joffre’s nuts in a bloodthirsty hard-fought battle.
Chris progresses to the ICC Semi Finals where he will face Karløs Wätsøn, the champion of the German Premier Conkers League, in what looks to be an all mighty clash of the titans.
The game will be shown on Sky pay-per-view at the weekend.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
