Putin said: "Gosh! Now that's a surprise. Never expected that. No honestly,
I was sure it was going to be awarded to Milton Keynes...I didn't
think we stood a chance....anyway I'd like to thank my mum, dad,
the Russian Mafia and everyone who put in the time and effort to
threaten the board of FIFA with long slow lingering deaths. Gosh -
I'm going to cry now................"
No, it's from Putin - he is just admitting that not only are they in the defence dep (I bet she wore her top three buttons undone), but in the football circles as well.
It's just that they never got caught in the footie boardroom.
Well look at it this way folks ....the Russians have at least saved the world from 2 embarrassing opening / closing ceremonies in one decade..........now does anyone know where I can off load some pearly king and queen costumes asap?
