    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    So… it took Rangers one week to get their new first choice manager in place … and Celtic took over 6 months to get a manager.

    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    Without question it’s the mid season timing. They have a semi final with Hibs coming up. The league table is relatively close. They still have unfinished business in the Europa. Plus the sounds bytes from around 2 weeks ago where said he was happy and looking forward to taking Rangers to a new...

    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    Keep in mind that up until around 1995 most people crossed from Kyle of Lochalsh to Skye via a small ferry. It could only take 28 cars at a time and lines in the summer to cross were crazy long. I can’t remember how many times it ran but it was really frequent. I don’t think they allowed you to...

    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    It was Portree I was in. But I didn’t go bar hopping. I was just in two places, down by the harbor . As I said , one bar tender had no idea Scotland were playing. I must admit having to drive from Ullapool to Uig on Skye at a moments short notice, I didn’t try too hard. It wasn’t a...

    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    The bridge has turned Skye into a trash tip . Far too many visitors. Heavy traffic . Litter everywhere. The only reason we are here is because the ferry going from Ullapool to Stornoway was canceled due to Covid infecting crew. So we drove south to get the ferry from Uig across to Harris...

    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    Maybe for better context and full disclosure. I’m not exactly in a metropolis. I’m in a small town on the Isle of Skye. Hotel didn’t have it or one bar I popped into. One bar tender “ Scotland are playing? On a Monday ? Why?” I watched some of it on a “ streaming service” on my iPad. Loved...

    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    I’m in Scotland right now for a few weeks and I couldn’t find a place showing the game. I was expecting a bit more interest .

    October Regular Season Game Thread

    I never thought I’d be watching a Mariners v Angels game at 12.42 am on a Friday night/ Saturday morning . But here I am . It’s a weird world .

    Streaming NFL games

    I’m not sure what the lag may be but I’m not that worried since I just drink beer in my man cave and don’t game thread . The nice thing is if you go weekly it’s not recurring billing. I just pay the $20 on game day. One last thing, if you do decide to pay, use a credit card with no foreign...

    Streaming NFL games

    I'm not in the NEP market but I use NLGamepass. https://www.nflgamepass.com/en It's as close to Sunday Ticket as you can get. NFL GamePass does not allow streaming of "live" games in the U.S . So I just make them think I'm in a country that does I pay $20 a year for a smart DNS Proxy ( in my...

    Euro 2020 FINAL: Is it coming home or going to Rome?

    Refs point at their watches frequently but my confusion is why the commentators are always guessing at how much time will be added when we're into the last minute , then they "get word" that 4 mins will be added. I'd just like to see the stadium clocks tied to the refs watch....so there is no...

    Euro 2020 FINAL: Is it coming home or going to Rome?

    This is probably going to be a bit of a ramble as I go into a full Monty Python " when I were a lad" post. Admittely this was decades ago but when I was in my teens I signed on S-forms for a provincial Scottish team ( aren't they all). We played continental teams frequently, and Italian teams...

    Euro 2020: Semi-Charmed Life

    Unfortunately, I think England score two in extras. Danish players looking dead on their feet.
