Old habits die hard, and this perhaps explains the intrusion of the football field terminology, in an off-pitch scenario, in the side bar article, above.
The writer, one can hazard a guess, was sampling the social scene of the host country, and came dangerously close to the point where football and alcohol became one.
(Loosely translated to insinuate inebriation).
There's hardly any other colourful way to justify this statement:
'Beers in Nairobi go for between Sh200 and Sh350 defending on the brand and location.'Well, it depends on whether one is being attacked by alcohol, or a competing team's attackers!
