More than a matter of life or death

There are some news items that are more important than Universae Ecclesiae.

Sunday afternoon saw the demise of West Ham, or, at least, their relegation from the Premier League to the Championship (ie the second tier in English football).

So they will play Crystal Palace next season. My last experience of a Crystal Palace - West Ham game was a Championship play-off in Cardiff, during West Ham's last sojourn in the Championship. I was driving back along the M4 that evening, and missed the football scores on the radio. I asked a group of West Ham fans at a service station who had won - thinking West Ham would be a safe bet as the winners.

Oops. Crystal Palace had won in their typically makeshift manner.
