First off, I’d like to announce that our 3 Bonus Pints hiatus will be coming to a close very soon. We are finding a diplomatic way to settle our creative differences. Ned wants more credit, Sage wants more volume, and I just want us all to get along.
Over the holidays, we hung up our boots (we’re too poor to have speciality stockings) and wished for Big Sam (Allardyce) to shuffle down our chimneys and fill our boots with green arrows. I’m afraid it didn’t happen. Well, I shouldn’t say that… because it happened for Ned.
I’m afraid Ned cannot be caught in FPL. While we were watching the acrimonious Spurs vs Hammers draw, Ned (a Spurs fan) was inexplicably and figuratively forever blowing bubbles. He turned his phone screen toward me and I saw that he was ranked 20th overall in Canada. I was taken aback and a tinge of jealousy glistened through my pint.
It will now be my New Year’s wish, resolution, and mission to catch Ned in the FPL overall rankings. A lofty goal, no doubt. Wish me green-arrow luck.
p.s. Ned, I think you’ve now earned the credit you’ve long sought after.
