Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
As a youth I went to more matches at t'Gigg than to all other grounds put together. My mum and dad's house until this year was a ten-minute walk down Radcliffe Road. For years my mum was the registrar at the cemetery next door and returned many a ball that had been booted over the quite-low stand. I was somehow wishing that the community could keep the club afloat, as it did at Portsmouth. Bury is a relatively thriving place these days, not without plenty of Tory-caused problems, of course. It's a terrible tragedy.
On a brighter note, congratulations to Lucy Bronze and Virgil on winning the women and men's UEFA Players of the Year awards. Nice to see Lionel and Cristiano doing internal grrs! Great speech by Eric, too, causing a fair amount of head-scratching. Legend!
