Bingo or Burglary?

Most old folk fill their days with bowls, bingo and 3 hour round trips to the corner shop for a newspaper. Re-runs of Des O'Connor and that nice man Michael Parkinson. They listen to Radio 4 and take long naps. Some like to knit and some like to play domino's. Some sit around all day waiting for relatives to call and some get themselves involved in the burglaries of famous footballers.

Over the past few seasons many Liverpool players have been robbed while they travel with the Reds to play in Europe. Victims include Pepe Reina, Dirk Kuyt, Peter Crouch, Jerzy Dudek, Steven Gerrard and Daniel Agger. Most recently Brazilian youngster Lucas Leiva fell victim as Liverpool played away at Athletico in Madrid. Last week police conducted a number of raids and arrested 5 people in connection with the Leiva burglary. One of them was an 81 year old woman! Amongst a massive haul of footballers memorabilia, police recovered Leiva's Olympic bronze medal from Beijing this summer.

Some people just ain't ready for wandering the mall. Wonder if they play bridge in jail?
