Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
partick is an area of glasgow where we used to play about 100 years ago. we then moved to maryhill but kept the name (we like to sing 'maryhill is wonderful...') Jags are what you get if you sit on a thistle. We are also known as the Harry Wraggs but i don't know why. a lot of people (including billy connolly) think our real name is Partick Thistle 0. we are also 'the only team in glasgow' though this may be disputed. according to the jag's supporters yesterday we are 'by far the greatest team the world has ever seen' - obviously there is no dispute about that. hope this clears it up for you.....
