He’s One of Our Own !
And he is you know ! When “ Kierney “ scores its special ! If its not check yer pulse .
So I settled down hours after most had watched it , and after 15 mins or so I thought we are working hard but they are nothing special when the commentator announces that the guy KT just had a sprint race with cost 60 million Euro ! Gulp !
I perked up and paid a lot more attention after that . We matched them for effort and desire in my book . I didnt see no huge gap in quality , no Sir !
A couple of notables , to me anyway . We were given a closeup of KT’s ham’s during the BT coverage when he went down injured ,,, holy crap ! Big Bad John is said to have huge hams on him ( and thats what lead to him failing the medical thus becoming a Tim ) but “ our “ Kierney might well give him a run .
Calmac,,,in the 88th minute he was matching runs giving it everything . I didnt really notice him much in his new quarterback role , but fair play for still closing down at that stage .
Rogic was always trouble , and James Forrest had a great game .
Although Kt was officially given Motm I thought Odsonne was odds on funny enough , to get it .
Whoever is responsible for the big guy , pat yerself on the back. One hell of a player we have on our hands here .
Overall what a night and we live to fight another day , great stuff and what a group she is proving to be ! I wouldnt bet against us going through thats for sure .
On the light show , if anyone reading was there can you give us your opinion or even just a breakdown what happened please ? It wasnt covered by Bt .
It will probably be a quiet weekend around here , just warning you . You might wanna finish that chore you started a month or two ago . I am outta town , 3.5 hours north for band practice ( thats devotion for ya ) which comes with a not free hangover , then booked to babysit on my return so the wife can fulfill her obligations in her sport of choice these days ( roller derby , yes welcome to America ) .
My partner in crime Majoc has organised a piss up with many fine Celtic men , and women let us not forget , in his native Glasgow.
This Hoot should be a Hoot ! Stay away from them dodgy kebabs and that mystery meat they always have on the go is my advice .
I think I can safely predict many skwerr’s on a well fired roll going down this Sunday morning to help the hangover ,,,oh thats right , he claims he doesnt get them !
I dont believe it ! Would be a terrible injustice if true.
Feckin jealous here , although I did find an “ Old Fashion Sausage “ maker in Sacramento , capital of California and home to her legislators .
On their menu they claim to be selling Irish breakfast links , Irish style bacon , both at 8 bucks a pound ( ouch ) and under his miscellaneous section he has listed “ Blood Rings “ !
Could it actually be black pudding ? On the drive home from this practice I pass within 45 mins , according to the Gps , of the place so I have decided to go and have a butchers 😉 myself .
Could well help my hangover along , a decent fry up ! Will keep all informed in this most important mission that could well make or break my entire weekend.
Regarding the blog since inception on the 1st Sept or so we have had 27k hits with 3k comments . Thank you all very much for taking the time to get involved .
Hopefully the idea of free pages has taken root by now , and that will only improve with more guest articles, each of which will inspire others to take up their pen and lay out their thoughts on a topic.
Our goal is a different contributor everyday , 7 different authors of 7 different articles , each author with one article a week , I imagine with 7 days to get her right we would be reading a lot of quality indeed , not that we arent already .. I think thats a great direction for the blog to aim .
If you wish to be one of the “ Magnificent Seven “ ,, and please consider it ,, WE would be delighted to host you.
The cutest 7 month old in the world takes most of my time now , especially since crawling was discovered , so Im hoping this might bear some fruit . Nudge Nudge !!
On the topics and lead articles I will admit being stumped sometimes so please give us some topics or issues you might want to see the blog debate . Constructive criticism is and hopefully always will be welcome.
I believe , but will confirm with Majoc , that Christmas will see the first of our charity drives though more on that later . Youre not allowed to talk about Christmas here in the States until Thanksgiving is over and done , one weird holiday that I dont think I will ever wrap my head around .
On Redcardgate I dont care who the team is we should all be worried when the refs eff up , and it looks like a hell of an eff up to me . If that was a Glasgow Celtic player we would be up in arms , would we not ! Ferdinand not booked after headlocking someone while rubbing a fist in their face is inexplicable to make matters worse . Tonights game up at Pittodrie should be a cracker ,bloody effing freezing up there though no doubt . Lets hope we have no controversy involving him ( not Neil , Willie ). Hibs have a better goal difference though both sides are level on points ,, if I was a gambler the draw would be for me . Stevie Clarkes Killie would be my tip to win , and with that Celtic could go to the summit with a win of their own . Should our team of choice reach that pinacle, I doubt we will leave it at all this season . January should see that reinforced with some fresh blood coming in , and as we discussed last week , some deadwood drifting out would be nice .
Finally with Jack Frost about to make an appearance , stretching on the sidelines after a long lay off , please take extra caution everyone and stay safe all .
Lets enjoy this Holiday season together !
