Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Bejaysus, Chelsea were brilliant tonight. But it means oil vs oligarch in the final. I'll put that to one side and look forward to what should be the final footiefest of the season. I was in an hotel in Sicily two years ago when Liverpool beat Spurs to win the Champions League. The guy (Alfio Puglia, you can look him up) who owns the restaurant up the road, the one with an amazing sunset view of Etna (we'd been there many times before and he always remembers me) rushed up to me the following evening to embrace me and give us a free glass of Prosecco (before) and limoncello (after). We will go there again next year, Deo and coronavirus volente. The hotel is the Villa Angela and it's owned by Jim Kerr!
