Cardiff City 2 Swansea City 1. A beautiful day.

Cardiff City 2 Swansea City 1, Championship, Cardiff City Stadium, 3rd April 2010

Rarely has a birthday present been better that this one: Cardiff beating arch rivals Swansea to hoist the team into fourth place, with the prospect of a play off place tantalisingly close.

Sadly, I was too hungover after a particularly ferocious birthday celebration, but old chum and urban75 contributor Paul Davies was on hand to capture the day’s events.

“Set the controls for the heart of the sun. We’re coming in.”

Read the first (score)line again, and savour it, roll it around your palate like a cheeky and responsive vintage 1811 Veuve Cliquot champagne – I’m sure you had a glass or two last night… then read it again, and then have a look at the Championship table, and then pour yourself another glass – you deserve it.

Celebrating recent victories at the CCS has been somewhat akin to break-dancing drunkenly on the poop deck of the Titanic, a giddy and euphoric high tempered by sporadic reflections upon where that fricking iceberg is. Happy to report that the iceberg was duly melted last night, under the oxy-acetylene dragon-breath of 23,000 hoarse and bonkers Bluebirds who exploded into an orgiastic orgasmic love-in as Chopra fired his 92nd minute winner past dreaming Dorus to win the game for the mighty Cardiff City.
