Spoke with the big fella this morning. He is fine. He is more annoyed that disappointed. He had set himself some goals for the 2015/2016 season and the #1 goal, which was totally in his hands, he failed miserably. Sure, the times for him were fairly good (all things considering) but the major goal was not achieved and this was the catalyst of trying to achieve other goals.
He usually just takes the piss out of stuff and rarely vents at anything. This probably just shows frustration at having our own failings. Live and learn I say.
He always says Trannies was great (that's how I got on here in the 1st place). Great to see how everyone cares. It's fantastic to have friends like this that will support, even if you rarely see them. A rare community.
I expect he will give himself an uppercut soon and be good. For now, it's just focus on a bit of back work, stuff missed from home over the past few months, fishing and occasional sleep in (also maybe the Nosh Run in a few weeks).
Cheers - Hoover
