Did you know London is presently overun with Scots? Wild-eyed, boisterous, kilt-wearing Scots?
Well, it is.
This was the scene today at Trafalgar Square..
They’re also doing a bit of rah-rah’ing for Scottish Independence, which I think is great. (see the ‘Yes’ flag)
But the real reason the lads are in London is because of the Scotland v England football game this evening. (‘soccer’ to Americans) The game is at London’s Wembley Stadium and emotions will be on fire. Spirits high, hearts pounding, blood heated. Lots of kilts, saltire waving, and maybe some blue-painted faces. All that because..
Scotland is facing the Auld Enemy.
And vice-versa, depending on your viewpoint.
Kick-off is 8 p.m. British Time / 3 p.m. EDT.
Look in early to catch the pre-kick-off excitement. The playing of the Scottish anthem will ignite the stadium!
It’ll be quite a show, the rivalry at a fever pitch, so you may want to tune in. At least one or two of the sports channels should cover the game.
Last time the two teams met, Scotland won 1-0. That was in 1999. So this game has been long anticipated.

I’ll be watching, cheering for our lads in plaid.
Hope you’ll join me!
