At last, and after far too long a break, the football season proper has returned!
The usual start of course, Rangers, the SPFLs friend get an easy start while the Heart of Midlothian play Celtic and then Aberdeen and that one away! Naturally also today we outplayed Celtic and they steal the game with a lucky breakaway goal near the end. It was ever thus!
Also naturally I was informed the game began at three in the afternoon and having been out this morning and rushing home to see the other game between St Johnstone v Aberdeen at 12 I happily drifted into asleep after the game knowing I would miss nothing. I missed 30 minutes of the referees preference for the visitors as the game actually began at 2:15!! GRRR! It's a disgrace!
Now however as always I am emotionally worn out, I need another rest, my heart has skipped a beat, my nerves are shaking, and my head spinning. This football wears you out and there is still nine more months of this to go!
Olympics, I really don't care! The BBC is totally given over to this waste of cash and every channel is full of this extravaganza.
Since Lord Coe in his heedless determination to have a Great Britain football team for the London Olympics that we will still be paying for in a centuries time, since he informed the Scots to 'F. Off! when the Scottish Football Association refused to play ball I have lost any lingering concern for this 'Team GB' an absurd way to describe the team anyway. There is no 'GB' and there should be no 'Team GB.' It ought to be called 'Team UK' but because some in Northern Ireland don't like it so that part is omitted to allow them to choose whether to be GB or Ireland. Yet Scots are forced to be GB, it's a disgrace!
Rarely will I watch any of the late night offerings, most of which will concentrate on England, sorry, 'Team GB' anyway. I am glad some football will be available to take the mind of things.
It is at least better than tennis!
