Gotta laugh

Regular readers will know of my general disdain for top class professional footballers, so its always nice to hear when they come a cropper.
Two managed it this week when they were convicted of speeding.
Ashley Cole was caught driving his Lambourghini at 104 mph in a 50. Magistrates heard his excuse was that he was being chased by photographers. His case has been adjourned for him to attend pending sentence.
Meanwhile, Jermain Defoe was fined £400 given 4 points for a 45 in a 30 mistake. His previous driving mishaps were 4 points for speeding in October 2008, 6 points for speeding in April 2009, disqualified from driving for 6 months in July 2008, and a further 6 -month ban in July  2009.
