Steven Wells visited: Clancy's in Manhattan to eat breakfast and watch football. Not for the first time, he discovered that farm implements and bicycles aren't the only oddities to be found in Irish bars.

Mr. Wells also gets bonus points for this simile: "This game sucks like a prolapsing white dwarf star." This article is absolutely hilarious.

Swells' writing has always been brilliant. He was a music writer (at the NME) for many years, and he's been at the Guardian for about a year, writing about sports. Under no circumstances should he be taken seriously, but he's always a good read.

Great post. Double-plus so for the Billy Bragg name-drop. Now I just want to know if they're relatives.

"I don't f******g know" says Rugged Landlord, a touch tetchily. "Why is Heskey f*****g playing at f******g all?" Is Swells channeling The Fooker?
