Yesterday was a lot of fun :)
I wrapped up warm to go meet my mam and grandma and head off to Sunderland to do the Legends Tour of The Stadium Of Light (amusing story, it's a stereotype that guys love football and women find it boring right? Pretty much all of the men in our family hate football, us wimminz? We love the beautiful game :) )
So the Legends Tour was a tour of our home ground with team hero Jimmy Montgomery ( Goal Keeper in the 1973 FA cup final squad, pictured above).
The tour took us right the way around the stadium, including areas not usually open to the public such as the home dressing room above.
The ever so slightly claustrophobic away team changing room.
The tunnel the teams come out through at the start of the match (we even did this with Dance of the Nights playing...No idea what the song after it was though, BACK IN MY DAY THEY USED TO PLAY DOTN INTO REPUBLICA'S READY TO GO!)
The press areas...LOOKATMEWORLDFAMOUSBLOGGERINTHEPRESSAREA! ;)
We couldn't actually get onto the pitch itself, however we could stand right next to it :)

If I don't get a chance to get online tomorrow, Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night! :)
