8.44pm, Saturday 19th March, Euston Road, Central London, England, United Kingdom
Evening folks, I’ve just boiled the jug to make a miso soup to go with my ham and cheese sandwich – I’m having a two course dinner in my hotel room! It’s been a very big old school London day out, and this little black duck is staying in and getting an early night. I’m a big fan of a top old London football team – Brentford FC – for a number of reasons…..their colours are red white and black ( same as my rubbish AFL side at home ), they’re founded 1889 so have a great history, and their home ground Griffin Park is the only pitch in the UK with a pub at each of the four corners! Whenever I’m scheduled to do events in London, the first thing I do is check what’s on at the West End theatres…….and whether Brentford is playing at home. Lucky for me this trip they hosted Blackburn Rovers at Griffin Park…..unfortunately they went down 1-0….but it was great to make the pilgrimage, and I got to have a chat to my favourite player – David Button the goalkeeper – after the game. So here’s nearly the best London day out that I could have….
We lost 1-0 to Blackburn Rovers and will have to work hard over the last games of the season to stay up in The Championship ….but I did meet my favourite player, goalkeeper David Button, so this is going up on my ‘Wall of Fame’ when I get back to the Winery
