For whom the bell tolls

There are two kinds of people in this world; when the last orders bell rings there are those who will have 'one for the road' and there are those who have had enough. I'm incapable of forming any kind of relationship with those who have had enough.

This is about more than just downing one more incredibly cold fizzy pint of German pop in fifteen minutes. For me, imposing limits on yourself shows a lack of ambition. A lack of imagination and a complacency about the future.

You're assuming you'll be back in the pub again in a few days. You're assuming you'll see your chums again. You're assuming too much. We're too fragile people to impose limits on ourselves and to take anything for granted.

Coupled with the fact that we are all of course doomed, I urge everyone to take a moment to reconsider what is really important in life and to lift self-imposed and unnecessary limits on one's freedom.

With this in mind I will be eating three different varieties of cake today and I will continue to bet on the NFL even though I would enjoy more success if I played three card brag with the good people of Dale Farm.

Today's wagers include a death defying Trixie which, for a return of £758.40, will require: a second half sending off in the North London Derby, a win for Swansea and a win for Real Betis.

This evening's NFL wager a quite audacious 'away' accumulator in which we hope the following occurrences will occur; wins for Detroit, Denver, Washington and Buffalo.
