Betty Swollocks!

The first in a new series of This Day in History!

On 30th May 1999 in New Jersey, Lenny Kravitz walked off stage after 40 minutes and collapsed from heat exhaustion. He had been performing in a fur coat.

Now I’ve checked the average temperatures for May/June in New Jersey to find they are pretty similar to what we’d expect here, with highs of low 20’s.  So while it isn’t exactly the tropics, perhaps an energetic stage performance should have been attempted in more suitable attire? #justsaying and #callthefashionpolice!

They’ve both played a blinder!

The 2011/2012 football season is drawing to a close and with one game left, things couldn’t get any closer for the 2 Manchester sides with City having the advantage only on goal difference with one game each left to play!

Those games will be Manchester City at home to QPR and Manchester United away to Sunderland, both on Sunday 13th May.

So here is where the points are at the moment:

If I were a betting person, my money would be on City. Their last game is at home which obviously gives them an edge but I would never underestimate the red side of the city who seem to have the devil’s own luck in these circumstances!

Who could forget the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich where they scored 2 last minute goals in injury time to win the game 2-1, after having trailed for most of the match?

Events such as these have led to the new phrase being coined of #fergietime but, despite #fergietime during the last encounter between these 2 great sides last week, Manchester City came out the victors and I for one am hoping that this is an omen for the final trophy of the season!
