MTU get a point from Hong Kong despite going down to nine men. Video clip here
My friend fatty (remember him?) and nine other goons got a four thousand baht fine and a twelve hour community service order each. They also made a public apology.
Now, it occured to me that my desire to lump fatty could be turned in a more positive and adult direction. I could challenge him to a Thai boxing match where the loser donates a set sum of money to a charity local to the winner's team. I would nominate the Pakkred Babies Home for my side.
The amount put up would depend on how many people were willing to contribute, we'd need to get a proper Thai boxing ref and lardy would need to understand and agree to my challenge. How could he refuse, in his current position and with such a weight advantage? In keeping with the spirit, we both wai, smile, swap gifts etc. before I get to kick him.
It's a ridiculous idea, so ridiculous it could just work in Thailand.
Who'd like to see it?
