The blame will lie with two football tweeters. I was about to use the throw of a die to decide my groundhopping destination for the weekend - not for the first time. (I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure...) Naturally (!) I thought this was worth sharing with the world on Twitter.
is making a shortlist of possible #nonleague #facup ties for my Saturday entertainment
Then this happened:
therealfacup @GrahamYapp You are the ground hopping dice man!
GrahamYapp LOL I think I've discovered a niche RT @therealfacup @GrahamYapp You are the ground hopping dice man!
BeatTheFirstMan @GrahamYapp @therealfacup do it!!! The book might be self-important hogwash, but the blog could be a joy to behold (hint....)
The bad news for @BeatTheFirstMan is that the blog may well turn out to be self-important hogwash too, but I should be good at that. As time passes, regular posts about the world of football, especially non-league, will share space with other random stuff. You need to be aware that I arrive here from the working world of education with an eclectic range of minor interests ranging from family tree research to recreational mathematics. I know a little bit about a lot of things, but am an expert on nothing. I hope that there will be some laughs along the way. I do like a good pun, as the blog title suggests. To be honest, if blogging turns out to be as tough as dreaming up a title, this will be as short-lived as West Brom's first foray into the Premiership. Yes, I am a Baggie by birth - deal with it.
No die is needed for this evening - I only have one new ground within travelling distance, so it will be Witney United v Kidlington in the Hellenic League Premier for me. Or as it is sometimes known, HELLP!
