The Death Knell


We have a dog show today. It’s been a while and it’s one of my favourites up at Winterton Showground near Scunthorpe. L accompanies us and I drop her off at Scunthorpe parkrun on the way.

MD is surprisingly good today, at least at first. He puts in a perfect clear on his first run which I hadn’t even walked. This is followed by a scrappy clear in his second, followed by a scrappy non-clear. You can see the way this is going...

My problem, is that due to my still injured calf, I can’t keep up with him.

Derby lose at Burton, in what is probably the death knell for their play off hopes. Burton were simply more up for the game. It was as if it was their cup final, with it being a local derby, and they have a side packed full of local players. Most of our lot probably don’t even know where Burton is. Somehow I don’t expect us to get any more points this season but then this is the worst Derby team for five or six years. So it’s either a huge credit to the manager that he has kept them in the top six for so long or it’s a sad reflection on the standard in the Championship this year.

We have a night in tonight, as it's Derby 10k tomorrow although not for me obviously.
