Tomorrow courtesy of some corporate thing I am off to the Emirates to see Arsenal v Man City. Top of the Premiershite stuff with two clubs who have everything to play for, and putting the overpaid egotistical attitudes of the players to one side, a game packed full of players with immense ability and in teams that are absolute quality who play football that can be a sheer joy to watch. Then add in to the mix the wonderful Emirates structure, rising out of the North London terraces like a shiny symbol of decadence, superb views wherever you sit and in total comfort, with the bonus of a corporate gig of a superb buffet pre and post match with as much drink as you like. And a free programme of course.

Then on Monday it's off to Roots, a delapidated stadium on the way out, peeling painted stands of wood and crumbling concrete with leg room a Cranky would struggle with, stanchions to duck and dive around, all surrounded by puddled car parks, the Pram Shop and a pub for 'away fans' where Dickens was the last customer. Then there's the football, Hoofball Present v Hoofball Past. And I pay for the programme, and unlike the day before, everything else too.

If I had to choose though of course it would be Roots, just love the place and despite the insanity of Luggy's tactics and the sheer moronic madness of Uncle Ron, it's the place I love. But this weekend I'll do both, and wonder at the contrast of it all.

So, what have you experienced that goes from the sublime to the ridiculous? Doesn't have to be football related, could be dating Miss World one night and Miss Piggy the next, or a MacDonalds v the Ritz thing. Tell all.:winking::winking:
