Football, 16th Century Style

This is the kind of lighthearted scholarship I adore and want to see more of. I don’t do mission statements as such, but if I had one, it would be “Blow up more pig bladders”.

Wait, forget I said that. That’s a terrible mission statement. What was I thinking? Let’s stick with the ‘One man’s quest to get 500 years behind’ thing.

Where was I? Oh, yeah, pig bladders. Blow up more of them, but not as a mission statement.

Oh, and anyone have a line on a pile of pigsbladders for a few pence a piece? No one? Okay. Nevermind. (Sigh)
