Terry Butcher at the Ipswich Cardinals last Sunday Sunday we were confused (easily done these days) by the Ipswich Cardinals pitch having moved and rotated.  It seemed to disorientate the Cards too who used up three time outs getting a complete set of players onto the field.  Guest of honour Terry Butcher interviewed said his favourite game was any one where they beat Norwich, he had no rights in pix of him bloodied against Sweden otherwise he'd own a tropical island and he thanked the Cards for helping his family.

No Mow May If like us you're No Mow Maying and the lawn is looking overwhelmingly shaggy and unkempt stick with it, just two days to go.

The Toronto Argonauts Astonisher No.61: A chum with Canadian antecedents finds Toronto Argonauts an unlikely name for a Canadian football team (it's like American football but different).  It seems more likely when you know they were founded in 1873 by the Argonaut Rowing Club.
