So premiership rugby returned to Kingston Park on Friday night and that can only mean one thing – it would rain, and indeed it did, for 3 hours solid. As a regular North stander (we’ve got roof, no toilets etc if you know the song) I am used to putting up with whatever the weather throws at me.
I checked the forecast and it did in fairness look like a cold wet night, so I prepared as normal. Work clothes, extra layers, some water proofs, bases layers etc. I struggle with hats as they don’t tend to fit, and gloves, either too cold or too hot, or too thick so I cant drink (plastic glasses) and cant tweet.
During the summer at a visit to the Argos clearance shop I stumbled across these:
From the golf range, so water proof, warm enough not too bulky, so I bought a pair (helped by the fact £7)
Last night I tried them out, and the verdict?
I just dont get mittens, there are many problems…
- Good luck scratching your nose
- Good luck trying to tweet
- Good luck picking up your pint
- Good luck picking up anything
- Good luck eating
- Just good luck
I did manage to open a bottle of coke, but when closing it I trapped the mitten in the lid so atleast i didnt have to carry the bottle. Despite Mrs Rolf telling me mittens are awesome they are not.
The only thing that could have less appropriate would have been these…
I might try that for the next game……
