There are some people I know who can’t hear the word Sanchez without breaking out into uncontrollable rage. Strange, I know.

I hope for their sake they didn’t chance across this interview with the likeable Theo Walcott in The Observer yesterday:

Outside the window, one of Walcott’s dogs – they have four – starts barking. ‘That’s Sanchez,’ he says. ‘He’s a pug crossed with a shih-tzu and he’s always dominating the other dogs. We’ve had the dog whisperer round and he says Sanchez has got height issues, that’s why he has to bark at everyone. One of the other dogs had his bollocks cut off the other day. Bless him, he’s got one of those lampshades on his head.’

Sounds about right.
