Instant Experts

As sure as night follows day if it's a bumper weekend for sport this leads to a busy weekend for Barrow's taxi's as well. What with football and both flavours of rugby games going on this weekend, folk were saying they couldn't remember a busier time for sport. I know nothing about rugby but on Sunday, the day after England's victory over France in the semi final, I was picking up fares who were instant experts by the dozen. Every one of them it seemed had become a die hard England fan and a font of knowledge about Rugby Union overnight. Several took pains to tell that me they could have obtained odds of eighty to one and have won a fortune, if only they had backed England to win early in the tournament. When asked "why didn't you then, if your such a big fan" the subject was quickly changed. Mmm wonder why!
