OK, when a guy’s been pushed to the brink of madness, what does he do? He jumps.
In a sudden rush of adrenaline, which I’m certain has something to do with the onset of early senility, I unplugged all the wires and cables trailing out of my TV/Astro/VCD player mutant hybrid and sat on the floor cursing every plastic piece.
But then, VOILA!
Or is it EUREKA!?
Whatever, I got this sudden inspiration. My sis had recently borrowed an LCD projector needed for her job, and it was just lying there, teasing me – “you know you want to do it.. go on!” Some quick wiring and cabling later, I had the Astro decoder hooked up to the projector along with a portable radio (for speakers lah, I don’t have the budget for a full-fledged home entertainment system mah), removed a painting from the wall (sadly, this left a noticeable discoloured patch on the wall, but I had no time to scout for ideal screen projection locations), switched on and prayed like hell to Jim Caviezel, or anyone else up there who was interested in what I was doing at the time, that it works…
And boy, it sure did! It was like watching Arsenal v Man U on a cinema screen! And how Arsenal performed on the night! Initially, I was hoping Man U would beat them (I didn’t want Liverpool to lose the record they shared for so long with Leeds) but Arsenal proved they deserved the 30-match unbeaten streak record, and Man U were just lucky to go home with a point…
Meanwhile, Liverpool laboured to a goalless draw at Leicester City. ‘Nuff said.
