I was in a meeting near San Francisco & had been giving my US colleagues grief about spending all their time on then new mobile devices, blackberries IIRC. Cue ko at ER & I spent whole 90 minutes checking on score & understandably getting some grief back!!
I took my brother to that game (who has no real interest in football) but we are from Livvy so he feels an allegiance to the Lions.
We were in the old east stand and...... I don't think he enjoyed it as much as me.
That was another midweek game against Killie. Last min winner. I used to sit bang in the middle right behind the goals then

I lumped big on 5-0 Hibs that night and was looking at a small fortune. When the sixth went in I sat with my head in my hands while everyone around me were pissing themselves laughing!! Did celebrate the seventh though 😃
I remember the game well - total domination, but an an inevitable sense of frustration that we didn't get into double figures.
Funnily enough, I felt equally disappointed, as did Eddie Turnbull, when we took our foot off the gas on New Years day 1973 - Hearts 0-Hibernian 7 - should and could have been more comprehensive.
