Well the "salt 'n' sauce" Cup final turned into an annihilation. Hibs are now on a Nelson - the cricketing expression for 111 - having been hammered 5-1 by Hearts.
I will get the difficult bit over first. Congratulations Hearts you were the better team on the day and, in spite of all of your problems this season off the pitch, you were the better side all season.
So far so magnanimous. Hibs....oh dear. It was a great day out until 3pm. The old adage of being better to travel in hope than arrive was never truer than yesterday.
If football is the working man's ballet then Hibs better sign Darcy Bussell quickly. She would have done a better job. Hibs just didn't play for 85 minutes.
At 2-1 the teams came out for the second half. They were playing "living on a prayer" at that point. Within seconds the match was over as a contest. The Hearts penalty awarded then was dodgy and the associated sending off killed off any hope for us but in retrospect after the first half hour or so I couldn't see any other winners. Hibs were mince.
