Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, back on sports howling form after a day off for Midsummer’s Day. And what a greenygrey Midsummer’s Day it was!
Greenygrey within the Purpleygrey
I thought I wasn’t going to be called into action for the Portugal v Czech Republic Euro 2012 Quarter-Final, with no obvious greenygrey combinations apparent.
But then I saw Petr Cech was having a great game in the Czech goal, and thought I’d take a closer look. And lo and behold, although he was wearing a purpleygrey shirt, it had a Portuguese flag on it, and guess what colour that includes. Yes, if you guessed green you’d be right.
Greenygrey Twist in the Background
So, I thought that was the greenygrey connection, and Cech was going to keep a clean-sheet, but then I saw the Portuguese coaching staff, and guess what colour they were wearing: yes it was an all-greenygrey combination, and there were many of them. Here is one caught on camera from the BBC‘s highlights:
And then Ronaldo scored for Portugal to win 1-0.
I was going to end the blog there, as we’re hoping for an all-greenygrey goalie tie tonight between the two Gs: Germany and Greece, but Susie wants to add something.
Breaking News: new greenygreyism
Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon. Couldn’t wait to bring you a new greenygreyism, as I’m off for the weekend. Martin’s analysis of the greenygreys in the Portugal v Czech Republic game reminded me of that old proverb: ‘a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’.
The new greenygrey version inspired by the result of the above game is: ‘several greenygreys on the sidelines is worth more than one on the pitch.’
