Widescreen World Cup Smile

People close to me, let’s call them 'neighbours who are not next door', have bought a new wide screen television; presumably in time for the world cup.

I can understand why. Big screen excitement improves your viewing pleasure and there is nothing better than a big screen.

I am sure the silky skills of Brazil, the sexy players of Italy, solid defence of Germany, big smiles of Trinidad & Tobago and David Beckham’s good looks will be enhanced by having a screen that is 42 inches wide.

But with all this heightened levels of excitement what will happen if your team looses? Will the disappointment be proportional?

Fear not. I know these people are English and this World Cup they will not be upset. In fact they are going to watch Beckham lift the cup in letterbox format.
