    bigjerseybuddie got a reaction from chico in St Mirren V Celtic League Cup Semi Final   
    I honestly thought that my emotions would be in check today but alas no.
    Casting my mind back to the last final and my dear Mother dying a few days before the game
    Her funeral was due to take place the day after the final and my Brother was insistent that we go to the game.
    We did go and took my Daughter and Nephew and I can honestly say that we just stared ahead for the whole game not really taking it in.
    It felt like She was saying to me yesterday that this time I can enjoy the final, however we have now got to deal with my Wife being made redundant and cash being tight. That's my trip up now taking a back seat. Or so I thought.
    I'm sitting reading all these posts and my wife whispers gently in my ear " you have to go, we'll be alright" and the emotion starts again.
    I know that football isn't really that important but today it feels like it has allowed me to be in touch with my feelings and now I'm planning flights and time off with a sense of privilege and disbelief. Jesus I feel about 5!

    Sat watching with my seven year old son who hates football. I watched while he played his DS. Has anyone on here witnessed a poor seven year old nearly suffering a heart attack 3 times? At the third goal I was down the stairs and out the back door before I had calmed down. It's many years since I have felt such emotion. When my wife and my daughter returned from shopping I was on the verge of tears recounting the details of the game( made funnier by the fact that neither of them are remotely interested in football) a fantastic day to be a buddie.finally, to have someone like the Hawk in our team is what made it all the more special. That man is indeed one of us.

    I would use the money to bring in Mcinnes for Lennon instead of signing new players.
