Finally, after weeks of hoping, the offence and defence played at a similar level. Unfortunately, it was the defence who changed their performance to match that of the offence.
As this site is called Gridiron AND Gravy, I think I’ll start with the Gravy this week and get to the rather less palatable Gridiron after.
With the dismantling of Halloween decorations and centrepieces complete, we had a surfeit of pumpkin to manage. Thankfully I am a huge fan of roast pumpkin.
So, with the Broncos and Eagles game about to kick off, I set the TV to record and sat down with my family to baked potatoes, roast pumpkin, mashed turnip, and roast chicken. Topped off with the previously mentioned gravy, it was the perfect start to a Sunday evening.
Unfortunately, it all went downhill from there.
