Because I've been doing a lot of "required reading" recently, I decided to indulge myself in random dips into the Discworld series on audio. Of course a while ago I also promised myself I'd read the entire Discworld series from start to finish again, so I'm blithely ignoring myself and am, as a result, all over the place - Unseen Academicals being Book 37 in the series. I'd pretend that I picked it because of the coincidental timing with the World Cup but we all know that's tosh. I picked it because I picked it.

Like I would be able to resist this one for long. 

From the Blurb:

Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old-fashioned grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing when you drop them.  And now the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else.

Opening Lines:

It was midnight in Ankh-Morpork's Royal Art Museum.*
