    Well, I do not know a whole lot about soccer, or football or whatever it’s called, but the French beat Croatia 4-2 to win the World Cup. I guess it’s the first time in about 20 years since they won their last one.

    So now that they have two, they can finally properly set a table whereby two people can dine and have matching cups.

    I have a request for you Bobby and other members
    Could you please not give the result in the 'title of a thread'
    Before I logged off, I checked recent posts to be confronted by the result
    As I don't watch TV during the day, I settle down in the evening to watch recorded programmes,
    football being one of them. It was not enjoyable for me as I knew the result - I kept quiet so Fabs could enjoy the match.
    If this could be kept in mind for future threads, would so appreciate that :)

    LOL.... believe me most footie fans in the UK would have preferred Croatia to win.... the French are not our most popular neighbours!!...Great game tho'...I recorded it also because I was out during the day but I didn't mind knowing the score ahead of time, it wasn't England playing so it didn't really affect my enjoyment of it later

    Certainly!
    I didn’t think about people who were recording the event for later viewing nor of the time change interface in relation to actual events. You guys are some 6 hours or so ahead of us and I heard the news at 12 noon our time which would have been around 7:00 P.M. or later your time when I posted the results.
    In any event, it was a faux pas on my part and I do humbly apologize.......
