Hard Luck

We improved again at the pub quiz on Monday from last week's 'mediocrity' to 'hard luck'. We still came 5th out of 7 though but were only 10 points off the prizes and 20 off the winners. This included 18/20 in the theme round and a record 31/31 in the music round helped (but only on a few) by a friend of Kate's mum who knows his music. JJ and I would have not come last had no-one else turned up as we would have got 33 between us (just).

I went to see Huddersfield play Sheffield Wednesday with David last night. There was a season record crowd there beating the previous record against Bradford by 11 and Town deservedly won 1-0. Steve Bruce's son was booed with every touch and cheered when he got sent off just before half time. He has to go down as Huddersfield's worst manager in living memory and this was clearly not forgotten by the home fans even though it is now 5 years since he pressed the self-destruct button and took us from automatic promotion place to the Premiership relegation to Division 2 (now League 1) in less than a year. We're on the way back now though! England also won tonight in unspectacular fashion beating Azerbaijan 2-0.
