I thought I was doing quite well at the footy tipping – until this weekend. Now I’m beginning to think it was nothing more than an lucky streak. Of the 8 games this weekend, I successfully picked 2! TWO! Pathetic, even if I say so myself! I haven’t seen the others’ results, but this will probably do hideous things to what was formerly a three point lead.

On a completely separate topic, considering how frail the Pope looked on TV the other day, I’m quite prepared to believe that he’s closer to God than anyone else on the planet.
