fizzy

Hi, I just got this by email, as an answer whether he would want to watch the rugby match in a pub this week-end.

I won't be in Dublin and won't be watching the rugby - give me a fizzy cup final any day over egg-chasing!

I don't understand the "give me a fizzy cup final any day" thing.
Any help welcome. Thanks!

    Your friend is saying that he prefers to watch football ('fizzy') rather than rugby. He calls rugby 'egg-chasing' because the ball is shaped like an egg!

    Perhaps would he like to see a France vs. Ireland final with a lot of tries and show (not the case when the English team plays)... well, I don't keep abreast of rugby these days, so just take it as a suggestion.

    Tchev, I have never heard the term "fizzy" to describe anything but drinks. Agnes is probably right: your friend is probably referring to the FA cup, or perhaps an Irish football final, which I believe is played with a round ball. What I don't understand is why he would prefer any of these games to rugby, which is the king of sports.

    Well I got the answer at lunch time...
    His favourite football team is playing the final of a UK cup called "the fizzy cup" because it is sponsored by a fizzy drink...
    This happens concurrently to the ireland/england rugby match, and he is much more into football than rugby.

    @zinc, Yes Irish football is played with a round ball. And I don't know why he likes football so much but hey... we all have a few bad tastes ;)

    Thanks everyone for your contributions. :)

    Yes Agnes E, There will be a lot of tries when Ireland play France, but judging on the peformance they gave against England at Twickenham, the French team will be watching them rather than scoring them !

    Yes, true! And there might be a lot of tries when England play Ireland, but judging on the peformance they gave against France at Twickenham, the English team will be watching them rather than scoring them ! :D

    Thanks for your support, Tchev (et, comme disait l'autre : Montjoie Saint-Denis !)... although Rodger is perfectly right, I must confess.
    Anyway, tout est question de point de vue, une fois encore (serait-ce le début d'un de ces gaguesques débats philosophiques dont ce forum a le délicieux secret ?)

    Un Johnny Wilkinson sinon rien ! Non, mais tchev, le rugby français se retrouvera une fois qu'il sera débarrassé du petit bonhomme incompréhensible aux petites lunettes, campé derrière ses ordinateurs d'écran de fumée pour nigauds crédules et laisse passer des joueurs comme Pascal Bomati de l'USAP et des entraineurs comme Patrice Lagisquet ! (ce sont des exemples) bon, vaste sujet, mais je ne souhaite qu'une chose, c'est qu'ils brillent, comme avant.

    Salut tout le monde.


    Eh bien, pensez à moi quand vous parlez de rugby. Je suis une écossaise qui habite en France. Ce n'est pas vraiment drôle...
