Cowdenbeath v Rangers
Saturday 24th January 2015 - KO 3pm
|Queen of the South
I noted with interest earlier today that the Doomsday Clock - a symbolic scientific barometer which purports to count us down to Armageddon – was moved forward two minutes this Friday, meaning we’re now only three minutes from the probability of catastrophe. In the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists where the clock is depicted each issue, the team which set the clock (including 17 Nobel Prize winners) suggests various issues such as climate change, increased weapon arsenals and poor political leadership means we creeping ever closer to potential catastrophe. Should we laugh or cry? Should we dismiss or build our own underground shelter? Or as fed up Rangers fans are we already done for given we’ve arguably been in purgatory for the last three or four years anyway?
Nine years ago this coming week, I lost my old man. My wife and I will meet my now, mid- octogenarian Mother for lunch next Friday and dine on warm memories. The old dear utilises the repast as an exercise in continuing to let go. Last year, she arrived with a hessian bag, full of family holiday photographs from the early sixties, and three cigar boxes. The vast majority of the pictures were grainy, grey, and crenulated. They captured the pain of a four year old being taught to swim in the waters of the outdoor pool at North Berwick, the raindrops hid my teardrops. There's a large coat clad arm engulfing a windswept five year old, on Brodick pier. Calun Kennedy is smiling and am reliably informed, is sporting a Rangers scarf. I am the prisoner of a bobble hat.
As we head towards SPFL Championship matchday 20 just over midway through another season that’s been tainted by a toxic cluster bomb of off-field ownership, boardroom, business and financial problems at the Club, we turn our attention not to another embarrassment off the park, but another embarrassment on it.Add a comment
