To honour the silly season, Kevin C picked up on Adolf O's dribble:

Bet none of you knew that David Coleman (inspiration of Private Eye column
'Coleman-balls') interviewed Klinsmann when his muscle got ripped. It went
like this:

        Coleman: How's it feel?
        Klinsmann: Well, I'll miss the semi, but I'll be OK for the final.
        Coleman: Yes, we hope you'll enjoy watching it with the rest of us!

The thing was suppressed for reasons of national security (also it wouldn't
help Klinsmann's application for British citizenship -- he's applied in
secret along with Cantona to give England an unstoppable forward line for
the next World Championships).

Klinsmann was immediately dropped from the German squad (hence the talk
about not being fit for the rest of the tournament) at the suggestion of
the French for capitulating to the British federalist, multi-nation,
chauvinist, mad-cow vision of the European Union.

Coleman was sent to Belfast to infiltrate the Prodestant paramilitaries for
his unflappable gut-reaction patriotism.

Interesting to see the newsgroups other list subscribers hang out on. My
favourite when I've got the time is nz.general.

Cheers,

Hugh
