Easy Pickings at The Rock

Watched Partick Thistle Nil beat Dumbarton 2-0 tonight in what was a low-key kickabout, which will be known as the meeting of the Stevie Murray Appreciation Society. Thistle let Stevie go last year, and tonight he showed that he still has a lot to offer... the best man on the park by miles.

It got surreal during the second half when the Jags, in pink, had two No 16s and two number 15s on the park at once. Perhaps they should all be given No 10 and told that they are Pele? Shame for the wee Dumbarton trialist who never even got a number!

If both teams play like they did tonight, it's going to be a long hard season for both sets of fans!

I looked in Wikipedia and I see that Partick Thistle's away uniform looks like a pink shirt with gray shorts. Unusual combination. Is that right?

Dead right! The most camp jerseys in the world! But we seem to lose very seldom when they are worn!

OK. I went on to the Partick site and saw pictures from last night's game. They look good.

Our American football team here in Jacksonville Florida are the Jags also (Jaguars). Our colors are teal, black and gold. Kind of unusual, but it works.
