Tartan Army takes the high road: Beating Ukraine 3-1 at Hampden to continue their unexpected Euro qualifiers group-topping run was probably more than enough to make Scotland supporters feel good about themselves. But they've gone a bit better; their half-time rendition of Loch Lomond [Amateur video] will be made into a single with uber-folksters Runrig, proceeds to charity Children in Need.

Good on them. I think I'm gonna support the Scots instead of ... Austria.

Well they certainly have more chance than Austria, not that that means they have any chance at all. Still, fair play to Scotland they've been very impressive in their qualifying campaign so far and I hope they make it to the Finals. You won't hear many Scots expressing the same sentiment about England though.

What amuses me, and is therefore extremely important, is that if the Scots get to the Finals then either France or Italy don't. Hopefully France.

I guess the amateur video wasn't posted by a native. Lock Lomond? huh?

Yeah, that raised a chuckle gspm. Sadly I think it was just a thick native. There was another video with the title spelled right, but the quality was even worse. Filming while joining in enthusiastically it looked like, at the sound was bad too.

I used to go out with a Scotswoman. She played Runrig's live version of Loch Lomond frequently. It brought tears to her eyes. That video will have her on the next plane home.
