woo-hoo, persistence pays off!! well done Mum & Dad, despite the best efforts of the organizers not to sell any tickets you got some, so off we go to watch England and America!
it should be a class day out for me, Richard and our Dad, along with a gent called Scott! it's going to be a long drive there and back for a cold night in one of, if not the, smallest stadiums being used, but boy is it going to be worth it!
less that two weeks to go to that, can't wait!!
in the mean time, my Dad has been enthusiastic about my comments around it being rather difficult - to put it mildly - to get tickets. he has, however, made a very good point. for some reason they decided to make the tickets all "cash only" affairs, apparently in an effort to speed up things. whereas you can understand them not wishing to accept cheques, suggesting that people have to go off and use cash machines to get money instead of swiping a card is faster is about as comical as their claims to have "always only ever sold tickets over the internet". another amusing anecdote about their "cash only" approach to the tickets would be exactly what one of their sponsors, a well known credit card company, thought of their services for the event being rejected!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
