Are you romantic? Does your heart flutter thinking about St Valentine’s day fast approaching? Is there a special person in your life? Does your wife/husband/significant other know about them? If so this week’s TFI Friday is especially for you. We will have a romantic wine to taste and most of the FREE nibbles will be aphrodisiacs. The cheese will drive you wild. The bar will open early at 5.29 to facilitate all the love that’s in the air.
Rugby. The visitors to Mayfield this week are Jed-forest RFC. They are 3rd in the league and a few points ahead of us but this will be a tough encounter and one we will deffo want to win. The mighty Titans are off to Edinburgh to take on B/Muir. Good luck to all our players. We have another FULL lunch club on Saturday!
The Irish Lunch at the Royal Scots Club on Sat saw a record turnout and a great speaker in Oor Fergus Slattery introduced wonderfully by Oor very own David Leslie and Oor bestie Roger Baird. They jointly met Oor Wullie and even got their photo taken with him. See proof here (Insert Photo) This must have been the mojo Scotland were looking for as they only went and beat the Oirish at Murrayfield!!! The Grand Slam almost guaranteed now.
This week in history. In 1983 an Irish race horse, Shergar disappeared. This is still a mystery and rumours that an international burger chain were involved has been vigorously denied. In 1587 Mary Queen of Scots lost the head. In 1950 McCarthyism raises its head In the USA. An early demonstration of post truth and alternative facts perhaps blaming a biased media. Oh dear!
In 1990 Nelson Mandela was released from prison so he could watch the game Dundee High FPRFC were playing that weekend.
There is a story going round that I wear a bath robe and watch TV and tweet in the early hours. This is fake news I don’t even own a bath robe. Totally made up despite the photographs, photoshopped! #mediabias, #fakenews, #geesabreak. 3.42am.
Sorry for late notice but just to confirm that TFI Friday is very much ON this Friday. The bar opens at its usual time of 5.31 and usual rules of engagement apply. The FREE nibbles will feature strongly and a guess the wine offering will be supplied by a local wine expert from near the Stobbie ponds.
Rugby. No Club involvement as this is an International Saturday and the Club moves on block to the Royal Scots Club in Edinburgh for our Leprechaun Lunch prior to the game at BT Murrayfield against Ireland. It’s a sell-out crowd and the main speaker is the legend that is Fergus Slattery. The Rugby Oor Wullie is looking forward to meeting Fergus.
Much fun to look forward to and lets hope we get that best of starts with an overdue win against Ireland.
Hope you have a great international Rugby weekend. C’mon Scotland.
