Love the score update.

I saw The Cure at Glastonbury in 1990 & they had to stop Fascination Street so a helicopter could airlift a woman out who had collapsed in the crowd.
While that was all happening Robert updated the crowd on the Cameroon world cup score.

It went like this

*sound of helicopter*
Fascination Street *intro then pause.*
Erm. We have to stop cos they've got to get a helicopter in to get someone out from down the front who's in a pretty bad way. So...erm & can you all move back it's like.. cos it's getting a bit deadly down the front......aargghh. I've got no idea where the helicopter's gonna land. Probably right in the middle of you.
*helicopter noise*
& for Mark who wanted to know, the score after extra time was Cameroon 2 Columbia 1 & I can't think of anything else to fill the time with so tell jokes to each other or something.

I can see you trying to explain a BBS to some twenty somethings, then you giving up and them thinking you're old.  They call you Mr. Socalnewwaver for the rest of the quarter.
