There have been 830 posts made on this blog (prior to this one) - and never, ever in any of those has the word 'football' ever been mentioned. So this is something of a first, whilst simultaneously being a last. Because football is one of those things in life that I completely fail to understand. Now you could be thinking that I hate football, but that's not really the case. I don't hate it, I just am completely and totally disinterested in it.
Which makes it rather surprising that I'm now showing you this rather spiffing poster, which comes in at an enormous A1 and is double sided to boot, and has something to do with a thing called the World Cup, whatever that is. And it's here because a designer called David emailed me about it, and to tell me that you can get hold of your very own copy for a trifling £10 - and £7 pounds of that will be donated to UNICEF (the other £3 will cover the cost of post and packing). All you have to do is email the other David at firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll sort it all out for you.
And now this blog will revert to the status of an official football-free zone.
