Drinking to yer health!


Here's a novel solution to disease-prevention. I, fer one, will be taking this advice. Really does give new meaning to the toast 'drinking to yer health' . . . Fook yeah!

MOSCOW, Aug 3 — Russian football fans have been told to drink whisky on their trip to Wales for next month’s World Cup qualifier to ward off the A(H1N1) flu virus, the head of the country’s supporter association (VOB) said today.

“We urge our fans to drink a lot of Welsh whisky as a form of disinfection,” VOB head Alexander Shprygin told Reuters.

“That should cure all symptoms of the disease.”

Russia’s Health Ministry has issued a public warning against travelling to Britain because of the spread of the A(H1N1) virus but Shprygin said he expected at least several hundred fans would go to Wales for the September 9 qualifier in Cardiff.

“Health officials say this virus is very dangerous but being a fan myself I can tell you that for a real fan nothing is more important than the well-being of the team,” said Shprygin, who also sits on the executive board of the Russian FA.

“Russian fans don’t fear anything or anybody so this virus will not stand in our way of supporting our team.”

The Russian FA also said health issues should not prevent fans from travelling.
“We don’t want our team to be without any support for such an important match so we urge our fans to go to Wales despite the health warning,” a spokesman said.

Germany lead European Group Four with 16 points from six games, one ahead of Russia, with Wales in fourth place on nine points from seven matches. – Reuters

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Game bro, I'll chug in to whatever occasion its gonna be for our next gathering. hey, how about this, lets celebrate the moment 'Sparky" Hughes gets the boot.

anfield devotee said...

JonC: Damn rite.

Kerp: Le dengki pulak . . . he he. Just because they stole Ade & Kolo from ye fellas. Relek la, Monsiuer Wenger knows what he's doing . . . Today's papers indicate he will be deplying a very attacking 4-3-3 fer the comiong season.

Biren said...

thats why i sorry we dont fall sick mah........talking about hughes wtf does he want with 6-8 strikers....and yes bals pls buy ani a drink....:)p

Tinesh said...

heeeeheee i got drunk 3 weeks ago so I wont fall sick :D:D:D

and i dunno why sparkey wants soooo many strikers. I think it happens when you have too much money to throw around.

On another note, fergie ferg is lining up bids for villa and aguero and also apparently ribery. doubt it'll go thru but lets see

Mohan said...

Ad Dude: Familiar with the other two but what's that middle one?? Nice whisky or just a bourbon. Totally agree with Biren...buy .ani a stiff one! It'll get rid of her cold, and of course she doesn't want to accept my advice of sticking a tampon in each nostril and go around scaring kids...apalah!.. :-).
kind regards, M.
p/s: Apalah..Xabi's gone... hope Rafa knows what he's doing!! Damn!

Bernard said...

Mohan - bottle in the middle is Crown Royal whisky. Canadian origins, have not tried it before, probably crappy...

As for the advise, good excuse then to polish off what's left of my Japanese whisky. Not that one needs an excuse to do that in the first place...

.ani said...

very funny boys about giving me drink ... chis!

.ani said...

and sapa Biren ni???

.ani said...

mohan: your tampons in my nose is so not funny dude ...

anfield devotee said...

Bernard: Belum cuba belum tau. Could be killer of a rye.

Mohan: Ha ha ha! Nice suggestion fer aunty ani.

Biren: Actually, me was offering to buy the good Muslim Kerp a drink . . .

Tinesh: Why is me not surpised that yer well lubricated?

Achilles said...

AD: mmm.... looks like i better go get my my dose of alcohol... been awhile since i last drank. :-)

BTW, check out latest posting on me blog... you might like it.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

tampons up your nostril...hey, thats a good one...hehhehehehe...

Bala, i'm game for it bro. and if my prediction is correct on Sparky's fate, I'll even drink more to that...

for now, its jeers to Ade!

Anba said...

Crown Royal mixed with Coke was the late n great Dime Darell's Fav drink...
But m really suprised to know that the Ruskies wanna try Wels Whisky given that their Home made spirit Vodka has a reputation of its own to kill...
by the way the way the h1N1 death rat is climbing and suspected cases at my workplace...it's scary indeed...
No piece of mind...

Anba said...

Taken from wikipedia ....


Black Tooth Grin is an alcoholic beverage made with a shot or more of Crown Royal Canadian whisky, Seagrams 7 or generally any straight brown liquor, and a "splash" of Coca-Cola, just enough to slightly darken the mixture. [1]

The beverage became popular as it was a favorite of band members from Pantera, and was said to have been created by lead guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott.

It was named after a lyric from the song "Sweating Bullets" by Megadeth from the line "Some day you too will know my pain, And smile its blacktooth grin".[citation needed]

It is usually served either in a 10oz. mixing glass/middy (with no ice or mixed directly in the mouth).

The Black Tooth Grin has become a socially popular drink, especially during the anniversary of Dimebag Darrell's death. It's a rite of passage for some.

bbbbBURRRPPPPPPP
drunkfree, listless
(..and aimless) in kayTee.

*sighhhh*

tuan kerpabayor/xabala-nso:

a) goons disposing togobhoy for a hefty BAYORan - a shifty move if yer a gooner? dunno; maybe uneasy, slight niggly discomfort like leftover sambal linings..after routine..morning ablutions;

b) kopheads plannin' on disposing alonso - yogurt fermented milk of a mistake, cheese that is expensive the more bad it smells? Or worse, just plain thairu watered down to really sour mooru.

c) chelsea - carlos "arentcha-luckY" been playin' the sidelines, nifty buys of playerfolk that..er no one really knows much about. but then again, who the hell knows right? not too much going in that camp, probably just fending the crap off other teams pinchin his bits of twolegged pearls...which brings us to the city of manchester, or rather

d) man city - couldn't help wondering this one pertinent fact, a recent article in espn further corroborated this niggly bite of the liver. although the dudes are spendin' through their glorious arses, the purchases they made...they seemed to have weaken every other team in the top 5 to 6 block, including the likes of villa and everton with the latest buzz on the go - one julian lescott. really good player, but i really dun think he's any good alone if that partnership he's got goin on at centreback is broken at goodison.

e) man utd - what new season? and..and..no prominent flashbhoys? who's balls are we cupping? (probably mine)..some of the flahsybhoys.i have to admit are sweet and easy on they eye..in terms of pure football entertainment...fergie ferg, would probably have something up and about soon. hear he's got this 2 serbian youngsters in in the jan transfer window last year with hints of stojkovic.

f) la familia Fc - wanna bet they might surpass last year's start record this year? sure go on, get huntelaar and all the stars that yu could possible name, but thing is:
a) would they be interested in coming?
b) would yu..show em the money?
c)...hey..you've still got the same problem last season, this season. tough luck. *sigh*

kerp, am with yu on this one:
a) sparkhy wont last - good manager, the pressure will be double on him though, he's already had 1 season of patience;
b) next on the list 'arry, if he doesn't get his backline up. that's gonna cost him. see the problem at the lane, they don't wait one season..mwahhahahha

appreciatively,
moz.

anfield devotee said...

superb analysis by the mozzer as usual.

Life's Like That said...

With whisky around, who needs Tamiflu to prevent H1N1? Haha!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

mozz,

Lescott + Toure = explosive combo. so lets hope Moyes wont let the former go.

Tinesh said...

No la, end of the sem plus some friends were leaving over the seas so booked a room at Duta Vista and got drunk + stoned as FUCK.

anfield devotee said...

Tinesh: Waaah, lifestyles of the rich & famous.

Kerp: Maybe they'll make a bid fer yer Theo as well . . . (*snigger*)

LLT: Whiskey tomorrow?
