Legal Alien: A Scotsman in Montreal

 
If you ever doubted how much effect football has in Europe...

9 months after the World Cup, or rather more precisely, 9 months after England beat Argentina in the World Cup. The reaction to this result was seemingly to spend the afternoon drinking and then the evening trying to create their own little David Beckhams. The birth rate has shot up, sales of baby food and nappies are up. But only in England. In Scotland, nothing has changed. So next time you scoff at people caring so much about football, remember it really IS a game of life( and death).
