THE MIGHTY JAGS.
Oh how I wish I had the technical expertise to put a picture of the new Partick Thistle mascot on my blog. It is exciting to learn that something about the dear old Jags has become an internet hit. But there's an educational programme needed. One journalist suggested that the mascot's fierce face would 'scare the children'. Obviously the writer has seriously underestimated the children of Maryhill!!!!!
With the mascot has come a new song to the tune of Cwm Rhondda, "Partick Thistle, Partick Thistle, we're not cuddly anymore, we're not cuddly anymore!" Visiting fans will be shaking in their boots... well, maybe.
A philosophical question for all you who like to think deeply about things. Partick Thistle are liked, are popular because rarely are they ever a threat to anyone. But were they to become fearsome and serious contenders, what then? Is it desirable to give up cuddliness for fearsomeness? Answers on a postcard please.
