We're Premier League!

Still pinching myself, having spent the day down in London, watching my home team, Hull City, The Tigers, playing at Wembley :oD

I've only been to Wembley once before for the footy, that time it was Stevenage Boro in the FA Trophy. They won that day, and I'd said to Ian I'd a good feeling about how the day might go.

What a game. It really could've gone either way, but Deano came good in the end, with a rocket of a shot, and it was in the bag. A tense remainder of the game, waiting for the final whistle, or a further Hull goal to seal it. Then, at 5 o'clock, the whistle went, putting Hull City in the Premier League :oD The crowd went wild :oD

Been down the Old Town as soon as we got back, celebrating and drinking. Off back downstairs to finish off the champers, remember someone who couldn't be here celebrating with us, and think about calling it a night. Pics of the day in the extended bit :D
