‘Christmas the Second’ took place on Boxing Day. I had a really nice day spent with Claire. We went to the “romantic” seaside town of Weston Super Mare to watch Bath City take play their Boxing Day fixture.

Weston have a terrible record against City and have also had a dire season so far, looking certanties for relegation. A win for City was inevitable and pre-match, even the most pessimistic of fans were predicting a comfortable victory against the ‘Shame of Somerset’.

Indeed, we were not disappointed. City brought us all a late Crimbo present, ‘battering’ Weston to a 2-0 victory. In all honesty, and I know this sounds cliché, but it could have been 10-0 – Weston were absolutely TERRIBLE.

One of the main culprits for Weston’s poor display was defender, Clayton Fortune. Unbelievably, Mr. Fortune had spent many years in the football league. When playing Fifa 09 on the PlayStation last year, I even bought him from Darlington for £500k… he superb!

I guess this proves video games are only fictional and not based on any factual evidence whatsoever. The only PlayStation game Clayton Fortune will be appearing in from now on is John McCririck’s Donkey Derby 2010 (currently still in production).

After football, we made the short coach journey back to Bath where Claire and I exchanged gifts. I was bought some lovely things, which were well worth waiting the extra day for.

While the Christmas gifts, telly and food are all over with for the year; the festive football schedule continues tomorrow with Bath City playing hosts to Havant & Waterlooville – another 3 points please.

  • 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.
