"I've been a pro-footballer in Scotland...
... but I've never had a match more *nerve-wrecking*.
An Iraqi village known for *ambushes*.
And I'd arranged a *football match*
with them to help stabilize things!
11am, Saturday, Imam Amas.
We didn't know what would kick off...
Thankfully the only *shots*
were the ones I saved.
We won the match...
... and a few *new friends* too.
Now when me and the lads are on patrol
the locals still chuck stones at us.
But not as *hard*."

Who would respond to this advert except a muppet who wants stones thrown at him?! (first quote above)
Ladies, you can't respond even if you wanted to. (second quote above)
