Firetruckery of the Day
Leicester City, Shakespeare Firetruckeries....
Everybody and his dog who has the faintest interest in sport today will be in front of their TVs at 9am, Caribbean time, to see for themselves whether Leicester City completes the fairy tale English Premiership win in the grandest fashion, by beating Manchester United, the world’s favourite football team (after Chelsea & Barcelona), at home at Old Trafford. Even at the NGC Bocas Literary Festival in Port of Spain, where a Shakespeare discussion is set to begin at the same time, roughly, as the second half, even with rock star Man Booker Prizewinner Marlon James kicking off, Wayne Rooney and Riyad Mahrez may run away with the crowd. All of Trinidad will be either in front of their TVs, watching football history, or in the Old Fire Station, talking Bard. Except me. I will be doing shopping. For small tables. When Riyad Mahrez hits that 30-yarder, or Martin Daly offers a swift riposte to Vahni Capildeo, when you are leaping out of your armchair pumping your fist or smiling at a quote from Macbeth that wins the argumentativeday…. I will be choosing firetrucking doilies.
