I’m writing to you today in response to your recent post about the 2011 Women’s World Cup in Germany. (Re. Keeping a Sporting Promise!) A post that you specifically wrote with one reader in mind - me! Vanessa Thompson! Could this be a letter of thanks, you’re probably asking yourself about now! Or perhaps I’m going to congratulate you on your thoughtfulness! Well… maybe if you’d read my previous email properly (Re. Football Mad!), you’d be in a better position to guess…
Get the picture, Ed? It’s a burst football! A useless burst football! An utterly useless burst football! Am I making myself clear, Ed? Have you any idea at all as to what my point could be? Have you even the slightest inkling as to why I would send you a picture of a burst football? Think about it, Ed? A burst football! What on earth could I possibly be trying to tell you?
Yours despairingly, Vanessa Thompson
Don’t worry Vanessa, I hear you loud and clear! And what’s more, I completely agree with you 100% - the coverage of the 2011 Women’s World Cup has indeed been shocking by its absence! If you ask me, the national broadcasters should be hanging their heads in shame! And what better way to sum up this outrageous state of affairs than with a picture of a burst football! Vanessa, you’re an inspiration to football fans everywhere!
