Proud to be a Mackem!

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

We came, we saw and we sang our hearts out! It’s all over, and even though we didn’t win, we’re all still buzzing. After yesterday’s performance by both the team and the fans, I’m definitely proud to be a Mackem. I bet everyone on Wearside feels the same, and especially those of you who travelled to London for the final. You did us all proud painting the capital red and white. I wish I was in Covent Garden on Saturday night; the atmosphere must have been electric! Apparently Tesco and Marks and Spencer ran out of alcohol! One post on Facebook noted that the fans could be heard from miles away and a passer-by actually asked a policeman “what have they won?” To which the policeman kindly replied “nothing, the match is tomorrow!” It just goes to show how dedicated our fans are. Support for the Black Cats could be seen worldwide over the weekend! We were sent photos from fans in Australia, Canada, New York, Singapore and even South Korea!! Even after the full-time whistle you could still hear the Sunderland fans cheering. On Facebook today we were asking what your thoughts were on yesterday’s game, and everyone seemed to be in agreement, that at the end of the day we made it to Wembley which is an achievement in itself, and there’s still a chance we’ll be back for the FA Cup!

If it wasn’t the football we were talking about this morning, it was the Oscars. From Ellen DeGeneres breaking a world record for the most re-tweeted tweet, to Steve McQueen winning Best Picture for 12 years a slave, it was an entertaining night. We wanted to celebrate in our own style by having our very own Movie Monday. Every song we’ve played this morning has been from a film. My favourite song so far has to be “I wanna be like you” from Disney’s The Jungle Book. Stay tuned all day as our Movie Monday continues, and keep an ear out for the Star Wars theme tune!! That’s correct; the full 6 minute version will be played sometime today!
