Murder in the Salon Morgue IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on May 11, 2017 at 11:15:28 AM by Gerry C
Two good tense finals at the club last night. Chara John and myself formed two-thirds of what was a disappointingly sparse viewing attendance. We went from room to room doing that Radio 5 Live thing where they flit around the grounds on the final day of the football season and promise the listener that they will bring them every point and every blurt as and when it happens.
A real shame that the Cup Final itself, contested by two excellent and equal teams, had to be played on such a quagmire of a pitch. Snooker rooms are for snooker, not for quizzes. The dim lighting gave everyone present the appearance of prize exhibits in a morgue - and would have been non-existent if James had not been generous enough to keep feeding 20p coins into the meter! The acoustics were even worse and I dare say QM Brian has a very sore throat this morning after struggling so hard to make himself heard all evening.
Not really good enough. Teams that make it to a Cup Final deserve better. Let's hope we can puzzle out a better solution in future years.
