It's half time in the England versus USA match in the World Cup.
So, we were sitting there, watching in high definition, as England were making an early attack. Suddenly, the pitch disappears from our screen, to be replaced by what looked liked part of an advertisement for some kind of car. We switch over to low definition, only to find that in those missing few seconds, England had scored. I'm guessing we weren't the only ones really annoyed with ITV and its useless coverage.
I'd noticed early on that Green was in our goal. That had me worried: I've seen him make errors before, including one memorable one in which the ball was going straight at him, he kneeled down to collect it, then he spilled it and it went into the net. Yes, just like a few minutes ago when the ball was going straight at him, he kneeled down to collect it, then he spilled it and it went into the net.
Maybe we should watch the second half in HD again. I'd rather miss another England goal than watch us lose the match.
