Big pussycats


It became fashionable recently for every sports team to adopt an animal. So we have the Rhinos, the Tigers, the Cheetahs, the Sharks, etc.  That is why it is refreshing when you come across a club that sticks to tradition and calls itself The Rams.  The incongruous word in that sentence is refreshing, but I hope you know what I mean.  Sheep (of both the ram and ewe variety)  are solid and traditional creatures, but you wouldn’t expect to be mauled by one. They don’t especially conjure up an image of pride, strength, ferociousness or daring.

This evening six of us from work went to watch Derby play Leeds at Pride Park in Derby, and the least said about the match the better.  Martin did extremely well to drive us there and back very smoothly with 2 or 3 back seat drivers and a sat.nav. system all giving different opinions. It felt pretty cold, but I believe the chill factor played a role.

We woz robbed.
The boy done good!
It was all about Dave v the sat nav and Dave won (though I had to applogise to the sat nav when I got home.
At lease we got there and no one died.
And Katie (as I believe she prefers to be called) didn’t dob us in as Leeds fans (or Spurs or Villa fans) as she could have done.
I hope that she is as magnanimous in victory as we would have been wink
