This week on the podcast Bobby & Eoin go all-out deconstructing the opening legs of the Euro 2012 Qualifying Playoffs. There’s a quick detour through CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying, with Canada doing just what was needed to push on. The guys then focus on international friendlies, and the two ‘biggies’ from Friday. Laurent Blanc’s inexperienced XI proved to be too much for Jurgen ‘Only one win’ Klinsmann & Co., while the English football press were strangely silent after a Capello-led England rumbled to victory over the world champs. It’s 1-hour-plus of the good stuff!
Speaking of good stuff… I have been bugging Eoin for a while that he needs to sample a true Canadian delicacy, to really experience what it’s like to be Canadian. He’s been in Canada for nearly 2 years, and he’s yet to give Kraft Dinner a try (I know!). It took a bit of convincing, but I was able to get Eoin to agree to a little ‘cultural exchange’. I’d whip up a pot of the good stuff, while he supplies the Barry’s Tea (straight from Ireland).
I didn’t have any ‘Original’ KD, so ‘Sharp Cheddar’ would have to do. I don’t think Eoin was very confident this was going to go very well. I had to reassure him that it was perfectly safe to eat, even at 10am in the morning.
What a champ! He said it had the consistency of earthworms(?), and that it was quite possibly the worst thing he’d ever eaten (and that’s including earthworms, I presume). That’s one off the ol’ Canadiana Bucket List!
Eoin’s smiling, but not because he enjoyed the KD experience… he’s just relieved he didn’t suffer any internal organ failure. The Barry’s Tea was excellent, BTW, and it fuelled a great podcast session. Cheers.
