Oh Joy of joys and a little bit of passion

As you get to know through this "window into my life", you may realise that I am very passionate about a few things in life....as I remember them, they will appear as links on the side of the journal so you too can share my passions, or think I'm so incredibly sad to be bothered with such trivialities....

And so we enter "The Sad Zone", that little known distant cousin of "The Twilight Zone", but no relation to "The Dead Zone".

My favourite football team, and thats the round ball world game variety, Exeter City, nicknamed the GRECIANS for obvious reasons because Exeter, England has a rich cultural link to Greece, NOT!!!!!! (ask for an explanation of the nickname) won last night....not a dramatic thing you might think, but of course, very surprising to us "true believers" who are used to the mighty Grecians snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, like our many varied English national sports teams...

This time, they won at home 2-0, cementing a place in the Nationwide Conference playoffs. Ordinarily, I guess no one would bother except you have to wonder why a normally same human being would stay up until 2am watching his side through text commentary and videprinter score updates, not normally the most thrilling of events, but this is different....the chance of making playoffs and getting League Status back....this is important...yeah, maybe not quite as important as solving world poverty, the water crises in Australia, or preventing Global warming, but still, in my little peice of the world, thats worth a 2am bed time....in yours, possibly worth a straight jacket and a visit to a head doctor....but to me the joy of seeing that 57th minute goal on the videprinter is worth a punch in the air and a "silent" cheer, cos of course its 1.30am and you don't want to wake anybody!!!!!!!

Passion, what would we do without it......
