*heart attack*

Ack,

I've just listened to the commentary of the football (soccer) match. Derby 'lost' 2-3 (after extra time) but as its a two leg game its a draw (4-4 in the end). So, they played 90 minutes, then another 30 (extra time) and then its penalties - which are awful to listen to.

Basically - each side gets 5 penalties and whoever has the most wins - if its a draw then they carry on until one side misses. Derby (my team) won - but I think I had an heart attack (one of the commentators didn't watch one of the penalties).

Its a horrible way to win/lose but nobody really worries if you win and so my team goes through to the 'final' to see who goes up to the Premiership.

Keep an eye on http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/d/derby_county/default.stm and http://www.bbc.co.uk/derby/ for the report. Its belting it down with rain but I don't suppose the Derby supporters will mind (my mother and eldest sister are there). The Southampton supporters have a LONG drive or coach journey back home.


My nerves are shot
