As an extra bit of excitement, ahead of the England game we are running a Tinned Food Count. It's something we have shamelessly stolen from a message board. It consists of one tin of food, a jug, a sieve, someone who can count and people who can guess. All contestants have to guess is how many individual units of food are in the tin (by number, not weight) and for bonus points how much liquid was in the tin. What could be more fun? It's uncertain exactly how this brings good luck to the team, but I'm sure it helps.
The tinned commodity chosen for the first count has not been made public yet, but I can sensationally reveal to you that it is
aduki beans! You get no prize for guessing what we're having for tea tomorrow! I am also Counter In Chief so have to count every single bean in that tin, never let it be said that I have too much time on my hands.
