Word of the week: MECZ

Make that word of the month... Remember when I had this brainwave, and then promptly failed to follow up on my self-imposed obligations to 2006: Year of the Polish Language? Yeah well, sorry bout that but I was having difficulty finding a suitable follow-up to the magnificant 'Skarbonka'. That word still makes me snort my drink out of my nose with giggles.

Anyway, I have a new kind of word. The sort that fits with Dżem (Jam) Menadżer (Manager) and biznes (come on, you can see that one right?) and a perfect one for today; Poland's first World Cup game which is about to kick off.

MECZ. Say it out loud. Remember in Polish cz is pronounced tch... Now say 'match' with a South African accent. He hee. I'm off to watch a football mecz.

Half time: Not looking good

Full time: Dear, oh dear.
