Congratulations, Hearts!

The Hearts of Midlothian Football Club, Mr. Shakes' home team, have become the first non-Old Firm side to qualify for Europe's premier tournament in more than 20 years.

If you’re reading that and thinking, “WTF does that mean?” well, join the club. All I know is that it’s a big deal, and it makes Mr. Shakes very, very, very happy, so just lift your glass and offer up a toast for this rather happy Scotsman. Even if he knows we don’t know what the hell we’re celebrating, he won’t care.
