And what he said next was ‘……’



The Last Time Ever I Looked,
the star of Salut! Sunderland’s gripping series, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team/Ground, had attracted 101 “likes” with this image posted at Facebook.

Steadfast dieting has whittled away Pete Sixsmith, for it is again he in the guise of County Durham’s busiest descendant of Saint Nicholas. But he still looks the part, as he describes it, as “Santa in his grotto at As You Like It in Jesmond”.

So a Mackem Father Christmas found himself entertaining a doubtless grateful host of Mag children.

What were the words on his lips? What could he possibly have said next? That is for Salut! Sunderland‘s readers to decide.

And the prize for the best response (keep it clean, decent and as seasonally kindly as you can among, though the theme is entirely up to you to choose) is a copy of Tales From the Red and Whites Volume II, copies of which Monsieur Salut will be collecting from Sixer this weekend.

Post your entries below.

This could be yours …

And while we’re on, enter the SAFC vs Fulham Guess the Score if you haven’t already. You cannot do so here but just click ON THIS LINK to find yourselves at the original article where you’ll see whoich scorelines are still up for grabs.

The prize in this weeks’ competition is a choice between two splendid Art of Football products, a print or t-shirt depicting two Sunderland heroes, SuperKev and Niall Quinn. A Fulham-related gift will be substituted in the event of an away fan winning the competition.

    No child. Trust Santa and ignore your parents. You must only think in terms of red and white from now one.

    “No, Jack. You’ve already had your wish.”
