when saturday comes

Last time I drew this bar I mis-spelled the name as Froggies, so I felt I had to draw in there again to rectify my error. It’s actually ‘Froggy’s’.  This was the corner of the bar that you couldn’t see in that drawing too.

People were gathered for the American football, the play-offs so I understand. There was ice-hockey going on as well. This is how they spend their Saturdays, and I can certainly understand. I popped into the Soccer shirt shop down the road to watch some Premier League as well; Chelsea were thrashing Sunderland (my own Spurs manged a 0-0 with Hull). This is what Saturday’s are all about, isn’t it? For us men. For so many years, my Saturday’s were about getting what I needed to do done by about 3pm so I could listen to the footy on the radio and watch the scores come in at 4:45 on the BBC videprinter (is that what it was called?). And then late in the evening, Match of the Day, my favourite show.  These days, I get my football results as I wake up, via live internet updates on the BBC (and their updater is far more sarky than the man who reads the results at final score). So nowadays my Saturday begins with the footy, and I don’t really care about the other sports (nor the MLS, which is frankly rubbish). So, sometimes, I go sketching instead.

    Pete, I know you’re not really a wildlife sketcher, but there were a couple of river otters in the Arb this morning, between the Calif Street bridge and the curvy bridge-of-sighs footbridge, very easy to see and of course close by. This is very close to your work! Though we’re about to get clobbered with rain…

    river otters! they’ll probably swim up to my office, if this deluge continues.

    Sunderland eh, well Chelsea can be cruel. I just wish spurs had capitalized on our fourth place. The bigger question is how on earth are we keeping so many clean-sheets? Spurs and clean-sheets don’t go together.
