It's Egg Chasin' Time!

This time of year always brings a smile to my face. It's a chance to catch up with friends old & new... to recollect stories of yester-year... and to get thoroughly leathered for 6 continuous weekends as we bring on the annual uber-fest that is the Six Nations tournament.

Ahhh... it's an institution. The games are always thrilling, full of passion & excitement and the accompanying banter is no less spectacular as old rivalries are revived for bouts of witty reparti and friendly tongue lashings.

Of course, this yearly ritual would not be complete without its accompanying feast... mostly and some would say entirely of the liquid kind (please note exhibit A). Picture the scene, as the throng of merry men (and women) urge their side on to precious victory whilst making every endeavour to drink the local establishment dry. Poisons of choice - typically a 50/50 mix of Guinness and "Snakebite 'n Black" with a few Baby Guinnesses thrown in for good measure. By the time the games are done and 6pm rolls round... the evening is only just getting started with no one quite sure what lies ahead. It's a case of going with the flow and seeing where you end up!

Now I've got to contemplate how to recover come mid-March...
