I was staying in Glasgow on Friday night and was a bit taken aback at breakfast the next morning at how uniform everyone seemed to look until I realised most of Dingwall must have stayed the previous night and what I was seeing was a sea of Ross County sweatshirts, scarves etc.  Oh how I wish I had been staying Saturday night too..what a party!!

My team also play today, but the importance of the game has now been taken away by the Hearts result yesterday. So I can afford to laugh...

I was out and about when I saw the result on my phone. I actually experience and involuntary sharp intake of breath, which had my nearest and dearest momentarily concerned for my welfare. Stunning result!
I apologise, in advance.

Congratulations, Roger - you must be delighted!

Except that you are now in the position of supporting the team every non-Tangerine football fan on the planet will be willing to lose on Cup Final Day. And should United win...well, who'd expect anything else? Raith Rovers in the semi, Ross County in the final? Who's going to remember the giants you beat on the way there, such as Rangers and St Johnstone? Oh, dear - bet you're wishing Celtic had made it now.  ;)

Another good win for the Saints again today though...
I apologise, in advance.

A fine weekend.
United in a Cup Final and a tenner each way on the winner of the Grand National. (At the early odds of 20-1, I might add).

Don't push it, Kettle!
