So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

Inconsequential Football

Been busy, too busy to blog. Saturday decided to head off to the footie on what was a beautiful day, for an inconsequential game. It looked good to start with, a remark from the 2 gents behind us who noted that it looked like Real Madrid versus Argentina. Killie played in all white and Dundee in Light blue and dark blue stripes. The football sadly didn't match the aesthetic, frankly it was pretty shit, we had a few chances and had the ball on target a number of times. What was lacking though was velocity. Had the keeper not been in front of the ball, it was unlikely it would have made the back of the net of its own volition. With the customary 10 minutes remaining, the intellectual giant of football tactics Jim Jeffries decides on a double substitution taking both front players off and replacing them. Nothing unusuaul in that except one of them, young Wales, was doing rather well and easily best player of the game and the only one looking likely to score. Again from behind there was the cry of "one duffer off, two duffers on." There were also a lot of boos ringing out at the ineptitude of manager. Would you believe it when four minutes later one of the subs scores what is certain to be the winner. A stunned silence from the two gents behind and fear on our part that perhaps Jeffries may think he made the right decision. Best player on the pitch? That would be Eric Skora the Preston North End player who was on loan to us last season. He made the half time draw to an almight cheer. Who knows maybe he was up for "talks."

Saturday evening and we had the Harbour Street retirees down for dinner. Pork Loin on Rhubarb, we've been cooking with Rhubarb for the past 4 weeks, its in season you see. Followed by Strawberries Romanoff and a wicked quantity of wine.

Sunday no quiz because of another football match, which has a tendency for after match mayhem in assorted bars across the West of Scotland. We nevertheless had an enjoyable dinner withe Lady El and a signatur pudding with alcohol. Her lad came in halfway through quite pissed and on very fine form having been to watch the match with his mate in the Water Sports club. Half twelve kick off and its now after 7.00pm. Seemingly he and his friend had upset the entire club by junmping up when Celtic scored first. Including his father, Jim Stewart a new recruit to hunnery. Must've been funny in a dark sort of a way. Anyway he reminds us that we shouldn't remark on his drunken state given the last time we were there, I was asleep at the table, thewife was asleep on the couch and Lady El was asleep upstairs.
