I've managed to purchase a single ticket for the Dolphins vs. Giants NFL game at Wembley on the 28th October, after coming up in the ticket ballot (which still doesn't guarantee you a ticket; you get given a code to use on the Ticketmaster website when you try to book). I did try purchasing more, but the requests turned up nothing. So a single ticket it was. I've got perhaps the least desirable location in Wembley for my seat - right at the west end, in the bottom tier of seats, which will mean it's low down and right behind the uprights. Okay, I'll have a great view of one of the endzones, and a fantastic view of the ball sailing between the posts when it gets kicked there (and praying that the net used to catch the ball in these circumstances doesn't fail!) However any midfield action, anything down the other end, I think might be a bit difficult to see.

Now all I need to do is source an official Jeremy Shockey jersey from the Giants store... now who do I know in the New York area that may be able to help me with that, then?

Assuming this is confirmed tomorrow, I shall be seeking tickets immediately!

Okay, so it's not really his birthday, but it is the birthday of three English cricketers, one of whom is currently touring Australia with England, and two who I'd dearly love to have seen out there, not least because we'd have had a far better chance of winning with them than without (assuming their best form, etc).

But I digress. This is my first Christmas I've not spent with my parents (and I'm the last of their three children to do so, despite being the eldest - Kathryn has done Christmas in both Canada and New Zealand, and Sara went to her in-laws last year). However, certain traditions have been kept alive. For instance, pains au chocolat for breakfast. And buck's fizz. Except I'm the only person in this household who drinks alcomohol, and there's a whole bottle of Cava to get through. Rather, was. There ain't much left right now. Hic!

I'm playing Guitar Hero some, too... but it doesn't half knacker up your fingers (and I'm only playing on Easy!) So I'm taking a break and typing instead: how sensible of me.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Tennessee Titans' Cornerback Pacman Jones.

Edit: Darn, it turns out the guy's real first name is Adam.
