Excellent idea. I hope hamburg will grind out a win against Greuther tonight, instead of having a "noche mágica". Other possibilities, I am afraid, aren't on offer.

It’s looking ok after half an hour. The random game generator that is our cable package has produced coverage of the Fuerth game.

I can’t quite commit to this the way I want to, Furth are in green with a shamrock badge. An hour in, still no goals. Furth are actually having a good spell here.

And Furth have just had a man sent off for a second booking, this one for diving.

If Hamburg ever work out how an offside trap works they’ll score a hatful.

And there it is:

Hamburger Sportverein 1 - 0 SpVgg Greuther Fürth

Arbeitssieg for Hamburg, at least. How can a professional footballer be stupid enough to get a second booking for a dive, of all things?

Played 146, won 71, drawn 40, lost 35.

I sympathize with your shamrockophobia, but hey, ours is trifoliate, so nothing to worry about.

Diving in the box trying to get a penalty while Fürth were on top and looking likely to score. Idiocy.

Scotland must win tomorrow to stay alive in the Six Nations. And even if they do, it's still a bit of a long shot.

That is most unfortunate; but IIRC, 6 Nations is usually decided between New Zealand and Someplace Else, where S.E. is usually not Scotland. Correct?

Nope. 6Nations are Scotland, Ireland, Wales, England, France and Italy. Usually won in recent years by Ireland or Wales. NZ, Oz, RSA and The Argies are the Rugby Championship which NZ always win except in World Cup years.

England has won some Six Nations recently.

At the moment, I’d give the best odds to Wales, followed by England, then Ireland. Italy cannot win. The next match (about 21 hours from now) is Wales v Scotland. Both France and Scotland could be eliminated if Wales win.

Scotland 11 - 18 Wales

Italy are already out, Scotland just joined them. France still have a tiny shred of hope, but this is looking like an England, Wales, and Ireland contest now.

Ross County 2 - 0 Morton

Now 8, 8!, points ahead and still with that game in hand. Is it too early to start counting chickens?

Played 148, won 72, drawn 41, lost 35.

England humiliate Italy, 57 - 14.

Ireland v France tomorrow is a must win for both teams.

Nope, we’ll pop the champagne for RCC.

Our random game coverage generator produced the Glubb game today, I declined to watch.

At the risk of infuriating the various gods of fate, we’re still on for a double. Bought my tickets for the final of the Very Wee Cup today. We’re playing some team from Wales on the 23rd.

I was curious where the final was to be held, good to see it is handy for both teams. I have never heard of the Welshies, presumably renamed from something else. *goes and checks* Actually no, they've always been called that, or a variant of it.
