Anyway, after the injustice of masonic handshakes and the like, we went to the supermarket. Why do the pseudo-posh people in four by fours get to park near the entrance? Oh yes, they have children. Don't get me started on 4 x 4s.
When we came home, I was delighted that the indoor bowls was on the telly, live from the International Hall, Ponds Ford, Sheffield. Paul Foster v David Gourlay, what a game. Paul Foster has hair like Tintin, from the famous Hergé books.
Anyway, it all came down to a tie-break. David Gourlay went for a runner, when he should have gone for a draw shot, apparently. 1-0 Foster. With a tricky jack length of 28m, Gourlay drew even, but Foster eventually won 4-8,11-3,2-1.
The other semi-final was between Alex Marshall MBE and Jason Greenslade. (MBE? For services to bowls?). Greenslade won, so we can look forward to a thrilling final tomorrow.
