Is what my wife calls “this moment I never thought would come” down to the state of the club and the quality of the football? To some extent, yes. But something else has happened.
If you haven’t seen it yet, the Cambridge Independent is a major new weekly newspaper for the area. I’ve really put this blog post up because a month after its launch, the newspaper still hasn’t managed to get Google to rank its website at all, and I suspect a lot of people will be searching for it online in vain.

Seven days since “the greatest golfing spectacle ever”, I’ve finally got around to putting some of my thoughts and memories into words.

If I’ve met 500 people in this city over the years, I’d bet that the number who’ve been to a Council meeting would fit into my living room.
Unlike Cherry Hinton, this is solid Liberal Democrat territory, with the Conservatives a fairly distant second last time out.
I dread to think what things would have been like if the Olympic tickets had been sold on some sort of “first-come first-served” basis.
If I were to have just 12 apps on my iPad, other than the standard Safari, Mail and iTunes, these would be the ones.
A list of favourite sporting moments which weren’t football, and some quite spectacular ones, now I come to think of it!
