A Very Good Friday

So that's the first bank holiday of the year over and done with, and on Friday we took off on the first proper Bender of the year. A most excellent turnout, and pretty much everything went to plan, I think we just about made to all the dive bars, only missing the Commercial, before ending up throwing shapes in Lloyds, and having a night cap in Mingles. Not all of us made the course, but buffoonery was at a premium, apart from a couple of incidents. This doesn't mean there wasn't any stupidity on show, it was on the whole just the normal drunken japery. The two exceptions involved the Child Catcher, who was taken in by my Ronaldinho April first post, asking how much they had paid for him. One point to the youngster. But he did score an agreed three points, along with El Grande Queso, for an unseemly wrestling match outside the Boy and Barrell. The Catcher had been getting a bit uppity for a spell, and the Queso responded by dunking his mobile phone into his pint. The lad didn't look best pleased. After an hour or so of bickering, Stevie offered to fix it. When the Catcher handed over his phone, and yes you could see this coming a mile off, it was rapidly dispensed back into his pint. Result, melee in street. Queso thinks three points are harsh, but it has been passed. Crespo said it was most embarrassing, and that the pair off them were rolling around like a couple of randy rent boys.

That was the main incident of the evening, special mention goes out to the Boy Dazzler, who after a long absence, put in a n epic effort, and along with Helmet, went to work the next day, even though they had their last beer at around four o'clock in the morning. We salute you. And I personally would like to also salute the pubs of Bradford. After months of slagging the city centre off, we had a blinding night, I would recommend anybody visiting the place to eshew the faceless corporate bars around the "West End" and keep it real round the old school saloons of Bradford town. Next up, and it is now only 9 days and counting, Germany. A fine state of affairs indeed.
