re my intermittent references to the trials of being a loyal qpr fan, saw this story on the bbc today:
"A pregnant woman refused to enter a hospital maternity ward when she found out it had no TV as she wanted to watch the UAE v Oman Gulf Cup final. "I shall be back once my national team has won the coveted championship," she said. True to her word, she returned at the final whistle and named her child Matar after Ismail Matar who had scored the winning goal for UAE. (Khalej Times)"
as i recall, the one highlight of my summer visit to the hospital was that i had a tv by my bed (don't have tv at home) and was able to watch the opening match of the world cup :-)
