Oh man. I may not be using the same approach as the lady in the picture but I’m not far off it: I’ve had a bad head cold for the last ten days or so which, since Monday, has mutated into some kind of sinus problem. In other words, I’m currently a one-man snot producing facility and there’s no sign yet that I’ve reached peak production levels.
Given this and the fact that it’s already Thursday, I think I’ve no option but to rule myself out for Sunday, which is a pity because my shiny new 2009 Club Mayo Dublin card arrived in the post the other morning and I was looking forward to giving it its first day out down in Charlestown. Oh well, it’ll have to wait for the match against the Dubs on the 22nd.
Because I’ll now be following the match on Midwest on Sunday, I will, of course, be able to provide the same barrage of updates to the site via Twitter that I did for the Donegal game but the downside is that, once again, there’ll be no pics or video clips with which to embellish the match report (which again will be based only on second-hand observations). This’ll be the same for the Kerry game the following weekend as I’d never planned to go to that one: regular readers will know that I’m allergic to anything to do with the Kingdom. That’ll be three matches in a row that I’ll have missed, which is slightly alarming but there’s snot much I can do about it, I’m afraid.
