Some Piping for the Weekend

A great piping weekend this week. The World Pipe Band Championship is on Saturday morning on Glasgow Green. The BBC is broadcasting live. You can find it here:

You'll need to be up at oh dark thirty to catch it all. That's about 3:00 a.m. in this time zone. But if you were in, oh, say. . . .Italy. . . . you could even sleep in and have a leisurely breakfast.

The consensus seems to be that FMM is the favourite for a win this year. I can't imagine Shotts even showing up after last week. And St Laurence O'Toole is my sentimental favourite and will surely be in the top six, God willing.
