It is just a game
News this morning that George W. Bush had asked for tickets to see the Wales versus Italy game in the Rugby Union World Cup set everybody's minds racing. One comment on Radio Wales was that somebody had better explain to him what olive oil is before he tries to annex Italy. Another listener suggested that he should do the team talk for the Italians, presumably on the grounds that it would help Wales. Of course Rugby Union is not a natural game for the USA and it is likely that he will have to have the rules explained to him. A bit like foreign affairs then!
