100 days – Day 64: Jaws

100 days – Day 64: Jaws



Helen and I saw this movie in Stirling when it first came out.  She was so traumatised by it that she had to have a large gin and tonic when we got home!  Well, that was her excuse, anyhow.


Last night, I watched “The Retun of Jaws” on TV – the World Cup game between Uruguay and Italy, during which – with the score at 0-0 – Luis Suárez appeared to bite his Italian opponent, Chellini Giorgio , on the shoulder.

I learned this morning that Fifa has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Uruguay biter….sorry, striker.

If “Jaws” (he’s got past form in sinking his fangs into opponent’s bodies) is found guilty, then he could face a very lengthy ban from playing.

Uruguay went on to win the game 1-0, a result that knocked the 2006 champions out of the World Cup

Stating the bleeding obvious,  senior Fifa official Michel D’Hooge told the BBC that “biting is not compatible with normal football practice”.  Really?!!!!

Meanwhile, after the match, “Jaws” had no comment to make, as he sipped from a phial containing what looked like a Bloody Mary.

I have a solution to this disgraceful incident!   In future, Senor Suárez  should take to the field, wearing this neat accessory to his playing kit:






And, remember, folks…….

You couldn’t make it up: the referee was the  Mexican  Marco Rodríguez – whose nickname happens to be Dracula!!!!
