I had bit of chuckle this afternoon as I meandered through Haggerston Park, watching what I thought was a normal 5-a-side event only to be confronted by wall-to-wall, or i should say box-to-box hipsters playing football.  http://boilerroom.tv/fives/naturally it wasn’t too much of a sporting occasion as the teams predominately made up of friendsters, sceney kids and unemployable media types with long hobo beards to match were enjoying the loud music and free beer (thank god the stupid gulliable Red-Stripes of this world still think Hipsters are someone useful marketing tool)

Part of me was thankful that hipsters were finally getting fit and stopped washing down everything with monmouth coffee but another part was cursing the most camp announcer who was taking too much pleasure in pronouncing teams and gentleman’s name. Yep  you can’t have a hipster event without the obligatory gays-in-control I suppose.

So the event went on regardless of the shitty weather and made for funny fare for my hipster-anger . here are the highlights or ‘footlights from my rather wet phone’ (you geddit!!)
