This new tradition started at the end of last season, went into overdrive during the World Cup, and is back in full force with the arrival of the new Premier League season (aka Theo Time). Watching football in the earlier hours of the morning, a fair distance from home, leaves a gap for the traditional mid-game banter. Luckily there is the internet:

S. Hate Theo, but what a finish!
P. Such a good goal. Hate Theo? Are you kidding me?
S. Yeah he's a knob mate. Good goal though.
P. You, my boy, are just jealous. Always been a fan. If he wore a blue shirt you'd be all over him like a rash.
S. He'll never wear a blue shirt; not good enough! What the fuck has Song done to his hair? Used to me my favourite Arsenal player! Have a word.
P. I think it's his own version of a Rod Stewart type number! It's so good I'm thinking of getting it done myself...
S. Rod Stewart? One of the grannies from the Shreddies adverts more like. Google it.
P. Googled. Fancy some Shreddies now. I like the idea of Grannies making it in a sweatshop...
S. Regular Shreddies or those Frosted jams?
P. Regs mate. I'm an add your own sugar kind of guy.

Just a small example of The Back & Forth of Saturday Morning Football. Cheers for filling the void MATE. So to speak.

{Incidentally is there a way to turn THIS into a terrace chant you think?}

I know it's been a week. A week though of deadlines, and I suppose hard work . And I want a new jacket. But anyway, at least there's: ebay, football (Six-Nils!), Jean-Phillipe Toussaint , homemade Ice Tea in the fridge, Indian food, the prospect of a week in Greece, wearing shorts around the house, and the two members of my family here.

Well, until a day or so, or maybe even tomorrow. Thanks.

{So I've always tried to keep the two worlds seperate, for the most part anyway, but the names gave it away to those in the know. You'll notice, or have noticed, that OCEAN HOWL has been in limbo for a long time. I finally found the motivation to pull the plug today.

I'd like to think, as a shot in the dark, that Ocean might have inspired the colour-scheme at least.

PAUL BRABENEC is a good dude, and this is a great project; so if you need an hour or two of shred session motivation - these days, it seems like I'd need a solid month- you should be checking this thing out regularly. Hopefully I'll be helping with contributing here and there.

Ocean Howl is dead, long live These Video Days.

P.S. Hamilton says it all}
