Today, I drove over to Hull with Ian and Frances to watch Hull City play Fulham in a Premier League fixture. Before the game Ian snapped a well-known Hull City dog called Rex. He works in a scrapyard as a guard dog  but likes to come to home games with his master. See him there in his Hull City shirt with his pink tongue lolling.

And the game? Oh Lord God Almighty! We won by six goals to nil! Our best ever result in the English Premiership! It was delightful to behold such slaughter!

One of the goals was powered home by midfielder Tom Huddlestone. It was the first Premiership goal he has scored since April 2011. Back then he said he would only have his hair cut again when he scored another goal so for months he has been sporting a bushy afro-style mop of hair held back with a black alice band. After scoring, he ran over to the dugout where a member of the club's backroom staff chopped off a handful of Tom's unruly hair with some handy scissors.

It was a magnificent performance by The Tigers and I was so glad to be there witnessing it. If they'd let Rex in the ground he would - no doubt - have barked for joy!

    1. German shepherds... Is that why you like them? Why not consider buying Alex and Dominic Hull City strips? You can purchase them via the club's website. And while you are about it, why not get Marcia a shirt too? You can have names printed on the back. For Marcia, may I suggest "THE BOSS"?
