After our constant run of games all summer long, this lead-in to the final has seemed an unusually extended one. But we’re nearly there now, just one more sleep until the big day itself.
The day before in part resembles Christmas Eve – plenty of running round to be done, cross-country travel for many while all the time anticipation builds about the day to follow. There’s no need to overwork the metaphor, which I know isn’t a perfect fit, but you get the idea.
I’ve loads to get done myself today and I’m sure you have too. Take it handy if you’re on the roads today (or, indeed, tomorrow) and if you do make it up tonight don’t forget that the gathering in Bowe’s will be starting at nine or a bit after.
By the way, the final pre-match Mayo News football podcast, for which the original plan was that it’d be online last night, will be available shortly. Perfect listening there for those taking to the road ahead of the game.
Nearly there now. Up Mayo.
