Football, Sports and Katie’s E Cards

“Yes! Good footballing.”

“Congratulations on that dribble”

“That ball nearly went right between those poles!”

These are just some of the things you might hear some of our very own team shouting as they watch their 4-yearly scheduled intake of football.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are those in our office who thoroughly enjoy a game of two halves. Every other day it’s “football is lovely”, “I do enjoy a nice kick-about myself of a weekend”, “that referee was wonderful, extremely balanced and impartial” and so on.

Needless to say that they, in particular, were a little bit glum this morning after last night’s World Cup performance. And to be honest we all are. Even for non-football fans, there’s something quite exciting about everyone coming together to root for the same team – so it is a little bit sad that it looks like we’re coming to the end of that brief period of soccer solidarity.

Of course we’re all secretly hoping that there’s some light at the end of the players tunnel and that we’ll still manage to scrape our way through to the next round.  If only to have to have a few more chances to bond over our mutual disappointment. After all, another four years is a long time to wait.

For fans of the beautiful game, send the footie-themed Soccer Birthday Ecard. Browse our extensive e card categories for more sport-related greetings, including golf, rugby and fishing cards in our Birthday and Father’s Day collections.
