Euro 2012: Portugal v Czech has Greenygrey Twist

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.

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.’
