Volvo Ocean Race Polo Shirt - Any ideas where I can buy one

Hi All

Odd request but the 14 year old Knot Yet Monster is rather attached to his old Ocean Race Polo Shirt, Mum on the other hand would like to bin it as it's old and grotty - any ideas where we could buy a new Polo Shirt for Christmas - all I can find is their Swedish store with shipping at 24 euros


TQ

J

Just because you'll get bugger all out of me, what with your poor linguistic skills and psychobabble. Just when I thought RibNet had been cured, and you'd gone, you re-appear, like a bad penny!

Thanks Jimbo - I should have thought of eBay but had it in my head that I needed to buy from an online retailer other than eBay - not sure why!!

Garf - you are very cheeky

Thanks again

Ooo! Take away his happiness and buy him misery.... let's see, is it Christmas again then? Thanks KY, you have provided a vital piece of evidence for my latest theory:

i.e., Christmas is all Wimmin's Fault

I will spare you all my full thoughts and deliberations on this one but lads, think about it....

... if there were no wimmin from 1 December to 1 January, Christmas would start after work (3pm) on Christmas Eve and be celebrated effortlessly in the nearest pub until, oh, about 1400hrs on Boxing Day, followed by a nice rib raid and a cup of tea. New Year would be run along similar lines (if it ain't broke, etc).

Eureka Moment! Maybe that's what's on the "redundant" chromosome....

Maybe Christmaddiction* is a double recessive gene!

I'm liking Wilk's suggestion... but then I'm also listening to Christmas music, so maybe he's got a point...

I never saw auld Santy as a Chrismaddict, but rather as an unfortunate old gent trapped in some eternal tinselly hell. I think he does it simply to get away from Missus Claws, I mean Claus. She's a divil for the festivities
