The Night Thread’s Memories Live On

This is my last night thread that I have scheduled to write, and I wanted to share what is quite possibly my favorite thing ever, an article published in the Peterborough Standard in 1979. I invite you to read it for yourself.

CROWLAND’S Silver Jubilee committee was finally wound up on Thursday evening with a presentation ceremony at the library.

But for the second week running Durant had to leave the field injured, this time suffering eye trouble.

The winning goal was another 25-yard shot – again from Blackstones’ central defender – coming from their second chance of the game.

Gary Cooper, recently signed from Queens Old Boys, had a good debut.

You may have noticed some typographical errors.

Finally I’d like to leave you with Michael Spicer’s reading of the article, which is really in a class by itself. I’d also just like to note that when I first found out about this, I was in the car with my family and started laughing hysterically. When they asked me what was so funny I tried to read the article, but couldn’t get past the first typo because I was laughing so hard. Every time I bring it up to send to someone, I think to myself, alright, I’m not going to laugh this time, it’s really not that funny; then I get to ‘fremony’ and lose it.
