Beautiful game

Repeat - "Came across this fabulous photograph in the Telegraph today (sincere apologies - I only buy it for the football) and it sums up the indefatigable attraction of the beautiful game."

The photograph is from the streets of Havana (giveaway - the car), and as the boys play their parents are meeting in a sidestreet bar or cafe to plot a political coup and to oust the incompetent and corrupt dictatorship that has run their country into the ground. Either that or else they're rolling cigars on the thighs of well proportioned, sallow-skinned red-lipped beauties who need to while away time before the next fandango begins.

Either way these people have got it right.
