2020 WORLD CUP OF BADLY AGING PUB TICKERS

The worst thing about being Tier 2 is that I can’t really do more than a pub a day and stay my svelte, athletic shape.

So that means I can realistically only bring you ONE post daily, at least for the next week. Which will disappoint my Patronised readers who signed up for three a day.

Unless I veer slightly away from pubs.

I’ve been greatly enjoying the sporting contest of the year;

This is our hero aging in his 20s.

Be honest, Nivaldo (29) is the only one you recognise in the BBC’s shamefully woke Sports Personality of the Year shortlist.

But if playing football in the early ’80s can do THAT to you, what toll does visiting GBG pubs in winter take on your heroes ?

Ladies and gentlemen, take a look at these picture of our leading tickers and judge which have been most traumatised by unexpectedly shut Kent micros, Buckinghamshire gastros and British Rail coffee.

  1. The amusing thing is – had you asked me a few years ago “What would assume a 41-year-old bank employee to be like?”, the kind of life BRAPA leads would not have come to mind.

    Alternatively titled; ‘Where’s Waldo on the green.’

    “I’ve been greatly enjoying the sporting contest of the year;”

    My guess would have been Maradona; but then I realised it was FA Cup, not World Cup as your title implied.

    “Be honest, Nivaldo (29) is the only one you recognise in the BBC’s shamefully woke Sports Personality of the Year shortlist.”

    Not a clue on any of them. I was actually thinking it was a version of Sesame Street’s ‘one of these things is not like the others’… in which case it was a tossup between numbers 2 and 4. 😉

    “take a look at these picture”

    Pluralise picture my good man.

    “& BRAPA (42)”

    He’s still a horny bugger, bless him.

    “& Maltmeister (60ish)”

    Blimey. That’s Duncan! (well, apart from the hair, and the colour of his stripes)

    “& Duncan “Pubmeister” McKay (307)”

    I was trying to come up with a humorous link between ‘Where’s Waldo’ and ‘Where’s Nessie’… hinting at it being a trouser snake but… I failed miserably.

    “& RetiredMartin (55)”

    From clowing around to blackface in 30 years. Well done!

    “Voting (via the comments) close on Sunday.”

    No question. It’s you. Because:

    – Si could not care less about Kentish micros, or any bloody gastros for that matter;

    – Duncan is, well, Scottish. 🙂

    – and Malty is, um… who is he again? 😉

    So you. Definitely you. And that’s not just because it’s your blog!

    Cheers
