Simon Grundy in the morning                                                                              

Here’s what you missed........

WE DID IT!!! Thank you to Father Marc Lyden-Smith for handing a Sunderland shirt to the Pope!!! He definitely brought us good luck.

I wonder how many people on Wearside are waking up with a hangover today? I must admit, I woke up this morning feeling a little fragile. I, along with quite possibly everyone in Sunderland was celebrating our derby victory over Newcastle yesterday. I was prepared for feeling a little rough. I managed to type a text to Simon last night suggesting we have a Mcdonalds breakfast!! It’s been the only thing that’s kept me going today but to be honest it’s all been worth it.

The Sunderland victory basically took over all conversation this morning. We were even asking on Facebook and Twitter how peoples hangovers were. Surprisingly many people weren’t hungover, but the vast majority had sore throats!

We had a call off Kev, one of the winners of the derby day tickets we gave away last week. He wanted to thank us and said the match was brilliant. He said the only downside of the game was that when Sunderland’s second goal went in, his partner had loads of strangers hugging and kissing her! Celebrations were rife in my local with grown men hugging each other. I’ve said it before, I’m not much of a football fan, but I love getting involved on derby day. Especially when Sunderland win, I love seeing how everyone comes together.

We also reviewed our #FollowFriday victim. We asked you to follow @JonesSAFC on Friday. It was quite fitting that we picked Chris, considering he is an avid Sunderland supporter. He didn’t disappoint when it came to showing his support for Sunderland leading up to kick off. His very last tweet was a picture of himself at the game with his fingers showing the score.

Around all the talk of football we also managed to let listeners know that as part of Rainbow Trust’s campaign ‘The Big Hour’, Simon, Stephen and I have all baked cakes. They’re in our reception and we’d love it if you came down and donated to Rainbow Trust, our chosen charity of the year, by buying a cake. I’m not being bias, but my banoffe pie looks amazing!!
