I'm going to go out on a limb here. I may lose all dignity and I fear you may think less of me as a result.
But I'm going to say it anyway.
The person who made the decision at The Rugby World Cup a few years ago that the players should wear new tight tops and slightly tighter shorts, should, in my opinion receive a Knighthood.
There. Said it.
I was at Twickenham last weekend at the St George's Day Match between the lovely London Wasps (whom I support) and Bath.
Well, actually we were somewhat trounced.
That aside, I have to say the whole thing went by me in a haze of muscular shoulders, pert bottoms, firm thighs and 2 pints of cider. (It's the law to drink that at a match... Lotte's law).
I became all unnecessary when the reserve team warmed up in readiness in front of me.
My distraction was at a peak as they stretched and bent over (somewhat knowingly I like to think) in front of my face.
I thought I stood a chance - yes really. Until I realised that the chances of pulling a twenty year old rugby ace might actually be a little out of my reach nowadays!.
Help was at hand however as the couple of chaps sitting behind me (late forties I think... ) tapped me on the shoulder and asked me if I was 'that lady who cooks on the tv'. More my age. And fans. Cheered me up.
So, please can we start a campaign to honour the inspired man or woman who decided to clothe these gorgeous young men in tight, tight tops.
Can we write to the government and start a petition to put this person in front of the Queen for a thoroughly good Knighting.
I, obviously will be the first to sign.
Are you with me?
