Argie Bargies the Frog Flops

Don’t get the title wrong – I like Argentines. I haven’t met a nasty one yet. Just because they can’t pronounce ‘Falkland Islands’ without starting with a distinctly ‘M’ ish sound, is no reason to get upset with them! But really, they are a nice people, and have a big presence in Mexico City. Lots of Argentine restaurants, which means lots of beef, and that can’t be bad. And today they went one step higher up the Gary Ladder of National Coolness. They beat the French 17 – 12 in the opening game of the Rugby World Cup, which was played in their home stadium at the Stade de France. Three cheers for the Pumas!
