I attended the opening of the new St Augustine's High School this morning. Auggies is my Alma Mater. I endured 6 years there but at least they didn't chuck me out!
I took the opportunity while touring the school to "shoot a few hoops" in the gym. Auggies was always very strong for basketball. Sadly I wasn't. True to past history every shot hit the board and bounced off. Former athletes Lord Provost George Grubb and Colin Keir - one of my SNP colleagues tried and also missed - again and again.
Then one of the priests present took a very speculative shot from quite far away.
BOOM - straight into the net! Divine Intervention? Mind you George Grubb was a minister and he missed!
