Gordon Banks covered in mud, they wouldn’t play in conditions like that night today!

Davidd and I are 57 years old next month and during those years we have watched some great sporting events. Today, we would like to continue our series of posts where we recall our memories of those events featuring some of our greatest heroes. We have lived through England winning the World Cup (we were a little young, though), Muhammad Ali’s greatest fights, Stoke City winning the League Cup and Botham’s Ashes. Some great times and even more great memories which we hope to share with you during the coming months. Today we would like to share our memories off

Who Ate All The Pies?

Last night we all gathered around the telly to watch the match between Sutton and Arsenal, looking to see if there would be a giant-killing act. Half-way through the second half, we had to laugh when Sutton’s reserve goalkeeper and member of the coaching staff, Wayne Shaw, who is no small man, started tucking into one of the club’s pies. We could just imagine the crowd singing “Who Ate All The Pies” at him and it was a funny bit of banter. However, the Football Association are now investigating a potential breach of betting rules.

We like to think that we are pretty broadminded here at Jammy Toast. There is not much which will shock us and I guess there is nothing much we have not seen before, if we are being honest. That was true until last night, while we were channel flipping to find something to watch, when we came across something which totally took our attention. There on screen was quite an attractive young Asian lady without many clothes on and in plain sight were her breasts. Again this is nothing we haven’t seen before and, needless to say, it caught our attention and we sat spellbound by this beauty from Thailand. Then, as the camera moved down, there it was in all its glory – A PENIS!

We have to admit that sometimes we tell the strangest stories here on Jammy Toast but today we think we have the fishiest tale yet with a goldfish who likes playing football. Yes, you read that correctly – it is a goldfish that plays football or soccer as our American friends call it. We have seen the video which shows off the impressive athletic abilities of “Span,” a goldfish who repeatedly pushes a soccer ball into a net, prompted by the command of his trainer. We aren’t so sure about Span’s passing abilities, but his training program? Well, it’s going swimmingly.

Match Of The Day

Tonight everyone here at Jammy Toast will be settling down in front of the Sky HD Box to watch Manchester United against Cambridge United in the FA Cup Fourth Round match between the giants and the minnows. The Manchester club are giants of the Premier League while Cambridge are struggling down in twelfth place in the Second Division – only a few places above our beloved Tranmere Rovers. Despite us being plastic Scousers here at Jammy Toast we are not “Manc Haters” but we just can’t but help to be shouting for the underdogs tonight.

San Marino

We didn’t post anything last night because we got in late and wanted to watch the England against San Marino match. The San Marino national team represents the second smallest population of any UEFA member and are currently bottom of the FIFA World Rankings. Since making their competitive debut, San Marino have competed in qualifying for every European Championships and World Cup, but have never won a match in either competition. They have only ever won one game, beating Liechtenstein 1–0 in a friendly match on 24 April 2004. However, despite being the world’s football whipping boys their sportsmanship is second to none. England won the match 5-0 and never even looking like giving away a corner, let alone a goal. Yet the San Marino players carried on playing and never stopped trying right up until the final whistle.

Biggest Sporting Shocks

Last night we all sat around the telly expecting Brazil to make light work of Germany in the World Cup. Germany had never beaten Brazil and no one was really expecting them to do so now. Here at Jammy Toast we expected Brazil to win 2-0 and even when Germany scored first we still thought it was only a matter of time until Brazil kicked into gear and started scoring for fun. Then Germany scored again… and again… and again… and again until the score came to 7-1 to Germany. The biggest shock of the game was that Brazil actually managed to score one. As Great Uncle Bimbo is the oldest bear here we asked him if he could remember a bigger sporting shock than last night. This is what he told us…

Erik’s Column #9

Hello everyone, my name is Erik, I am a teddy bear and this is my column. In fact, I am not just an ordinary teddy bear because I am, in fact, a very pissed off teddy bear. I am a bear who loves his sport. Football, cricket, tennis; you name it and I will follow it. Furthermore, I always support our national teams in all the sports I follow and therein lies the problem. Firstly, I have waited four years for the World Cup to come round and we didn’t even get past the group stages. Secondly we have lost a test series to Sri Lanka for the first time in the history of the universe and now Scotland can have Andy Murray back because he can’t even make it to the semi-finals in defence of his Wimbledon title.

No Post Today Because We Are So Shite

There will be no post today because Jammy Toast is officially in mourning for the state of sport in this country. Today has seen England finally knocked out of the World Cup in football and, even worse, the England cricket team has lost their first ever Test Series against Sri Lanka. All around Jammy Toast you can hear the sound of small bears sopping into their soggy jam on toast as the realisation that we really are shite hits home. A sad, sad day!!
