When you think about it, she has a very valid point

Her: "So, was it an important thing they won?"

Me: "Well, it was the League Cup."

Her: "THEY WON THE LEAGUE???"

Me: "No, they won the League Cup, as opposed to the League or the Cup."

Her: "And do they not win a Cup if they win the League."

Me: "Well it's more of a trophy, but don't even get me started on the FA Trophy."

Her: "So, let me get this straight. There's the League, the Cup, and then the League Cup?"

Me (proudly): "That's exactly right."

Her: "And how important was the one they won today?"

Me: "Well, pretty much the least important of the three."

Her: "You'd think it'd be most important, what with it being called the LEAGUE CUP."

At which point I exited the room to write this blog.

Nobody ever said that sport makes sense.

I'm married to someone who loves cricket, and terms such as 'up the blockhole', 'in the slips' and 'silly mid-on' are not worth even bothering to ask about.

Fran - As she says herself, "I know what it is as long as I don't think about it."

Kath - I write about sport for a living and have no idea what any of that means!
