    Some good ones in there.

    "24. Only ever pronounce team names in the language of the country they’re from so it’s Reeeber y Boca in the Bombanerrrrrrro, Pareee-san-jyrmah and Ireland’s Euro 88 game was in Ghel-sin-kirssshhhhhhh-en."

    I never had George Hamilton down as a hipster (Brondboo, The Bernaboo)

    Also extra hipster points by referring to the Nou Camp as the "Camp Nou"

    That's just good grammar. Latin speakers don't say Trafford Old or Lane White Heart.

    It'd be Lane White Hart
