Mousecarcass likes 'This Time Round'. He hasn't a clue who anyone is, blokes
in scarfs and huge, beeping pepper-pots, but they call it 'football' and
that being rare, he drinks here often.

Now's special. Their coverage's ITV, people who know football, commentating

He's wearing his own scarf, red and white, and a spiffy new shirt with an
intriguing expiration date near the hem. In his pocket, a piece of paper
with several vital statistics, in case he forgets himself in the excitement.

They're playing Argentina; Beckham's captaining. He's praying from the
depths of his atheistic soul.

The whistle blows.

tangential sense. He's technically unWritten, too.

Doctor Who, or ITV. No one receives any form of monetary benefit from this
story and no infringement is intended.

* This Time Round is the Doctor Who watering hole.
