Looks like an own goal to me

Friend of humanity, meteorologist, and philosopher Tom Hamill reminds us of this clip:

Which reminds me to this clip, one of the very few songs the lyrics of which I have manage to memorize:


  1. As a Englishman, I am not sure whether to be very proud or highly embarrassed.

    Maybe you can work out the probabilities for me …

  2. Socrates, off side as usual!

  3. A little levity in troubled times is a good thing.!

  4. It’s “debatable”, but perhaps the teams changed ends at half-time. So not an own goal?

    By George, I didn’t think of that. I think you’re right!

  6. Mr Briggs, it’s not own goal because it’s on the second half of the game, thus it was the german’s side.

  7. oops, guess it had already been said.
