Back in Leeds for the weekend. Tomorrow it's down to London for the Francis Bacon show at the Tate, but today was spent round at my brother's place for a Sky Sports Super Sunday of three whole football matches. This included the ritual FA cup humbling of Leeds United, who lost in humilating, water-logged fashion to the non-league, part-time minnows of Histon FC. Someone present remarked, "Histon's only a small village. It's just got one post office, three paedophiles and no blacks." Still, at least now we can concentrate on the league and forget about these meaningless diversions.
