Krimo's on the Fence...

World Cup Fever has suddenly hit Hartlepool and, as one of the few Algerian on Tees Valley, I find myself torn between supporting my country of birth and my adopted one.
England and Algeria meet this evening in Capetown. The forthcoming event has created a lot of interest among the local media. Yesterday, the Hartlepool Mail ran the story and intend being at Flix to report on the live action and ups-and-downs...
The Evening Gazette recounted my grandson's interjection when Algeria and England were drawn in the same group back in December.
"Grampa, you've lived here longer than in Algeria, so you should support England."
My answer was: "That's not how it works, Alex. "
Adam's Flix Movie Cafe will be packed this evening.
This morning we both appeaered on John Foster's show on BBC Radio Tees.
We may even appear on Tyne Tees Television on the local news this evening.
Go Algeria, Go!!

Bonsoir Krimo,

Nous avons eu la même idée : la photo est dans mon blog.

Bonne chance aux deux équipes et que le meilleur gagne !

Bonsoir Krimo,

Le match est terminé !
L'honneur est sauf pour toi et Alex.
Les deux équipes repartent dos à dos

Algeria ran rings round England. Support El Djazair! (They're better looking too). Allez les verts!

Krimo said...

Better looking! That's what Karen said. She drew the short straw.

Match nul, presqu'une victoire pour l'Algerie.

You're too generous! I think I'm going to change my avatar cos I've piled on the weight.
