Pirate League Finally Walks PlankPosted: April 15, 2008
The last of the Pirate Leagues has finally ran aground this week.
The leagues were formed in the early 1960’s by hundreds of teams who had been forbidden to join the Football League.
They instead played their matches on board cramped ships in the North Sea and posted the results back to anxious shore-bound fans via a message in a bottle.
With just three participating teams remaining, the last league has finally died out as all of those involved have realised that it is a complete waste of fucking time.
