A Lazy Arsed Photo Post

In completely reverse order because I just can't seem to get the hang of uploading loads of photos.

Thorpe Park...

Woosh.

Would you trust this Irishman with a gun?

Probably the slowest ride, but made my head want to explode on every loop. Only did this once.

The Saw ride. Absolute quality.

Must. Go. Faster.

Then there was Stealth. 0-80mph in not much time at all. Beyond awesome. Did this twice but would've happily stayed on it all day.


I'd like to thank the children in front for really making this photo. Your parents must be so proud.

And then there was the Women's Handball. With England vs Iceland. Unfortunately we got our butts kicked...

Spot the ball...

There was also some gurning...

And some running...

And some penalties...

And the view wasn't bad...


And finally...there's the final. Of the JP Trophy, featuring my team! Southampton vs Carlisle at the mighty Wembley Stadium. I was halfway through writing a proper post for this but I just felt I was waffling on. But it included running, money, really dodgy looking blokes, a lovely ticket sales woman, and a even better cup of tea.


From the outside, Wembley Stadium looks just like a giant shopping centre. Serious failure from the designers I'm afraid.

But from the inside, it's an amazing place to be. Especially with over 44,000 Saints fans to keep you company.



We ran out 4-1 winners. Which is always nice. The Saints fans started the customary Mexican Wave when a team is romping home to victory. As it rippled through the crowd we all cheered, right up until it reached the meagre amount of Carlisle fans. Who decided not to take part. Nobody likes a sore loser. So we all booed when the wave reached them. That'll learn 'em!


Hooray!

Fun (scary) rides.
Ups and downs, highs and lows...
Good to see you enjoying the highs!

Let the good times roll then...

If you ever come here we'll take you to a really boring baseball game in a stadium that is only half full if you like ...

Lucky.

Oh. You've visited Thorpe Park. Want to to there again as well. They have nice rollercoasters. Loved Stealth and Nemesis Inferno. And they have some nice flat rides as well. How is "Saw - The Ride"? Looks impressive and big fun on all the pictures i saw.
