I couldn't understand soccer, specially the "offside" rule. He couldn't follow baseball, specially in comparison to cricket. And he'd rather talk about rugby than the NFL!
We did find a lot of common ground on our mutual love for The Beatles.
I found that he had stuff like "Beatles for Sale" and a very different set of tracks on "Rubber Soul".
Perhaps, "Yesterday and Today" was the best example of all of these differences.
It was released here between "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver" and it included "Day Tripper" and "We can work it out", two songs that were never released in UK LP's.
