It’s not just Kerry and Armagh who’ve had cause for continual celebration since Sunday: with the culmination of the championship has also come the denouement of the Green and Red/Club Mayo Dublin championship prediction mini-league (with thanks to Face the Ball whose technical wizardry made it all possible).
Mortified has won it: he led the field from a long way out and held off the challenge of rayosilke coming up the home straight. SixPointsUp – who won the league variant of this competition – made a late dash for glory but had to be content for third spot.
I made it over the line in seventh, which was an improvement on my league form but still well off the pace. A bit like the senior team, in other words.
There are prizes to be doled out and the fact that I left all that on the long finger for the past few weeks has now come back to haunt me. To compound matters, I’m off to London in the morning for some worky stuff so it’ll be next week before I can get that sorted. But, hey, haven’t we got months ahead of us now with no football to occupy us? I’ll sort out the loot shortly, Mort, honest I will.
