Listen in, listen Ian!

So I'm just watching yesterday's Pointless1, and the question is "Football teams who have played in the Scottish Premier League". Someone has just said "Glasgow". Now, I follow football so it's obvious to me that this is wrong, but am I being harsh in expecting that just existing and vaguely paying attention to what's going on around you should allow you to absorb the name of at least one Scottish football team?

So, another poll. I'm not trying to look for clever answers here, I'd rather you gave an obvious correct answer than a wrong one.

Name a football team who have played in the Scottish Premier league

Ooh, it's the next round now, and the category is "Radio 4 programmes". I suspect my readers here would probably do okay on that one.

1In case you don't know, Pointless is a bit like Family Fortunes in reverse - they ask 100 people to give as many answers as possible to the question, and the contestants have to predict the correct answer that the fewest people gave, ideally a correct answer that none of the 100 people gave.

I *love* it when it's anything about Scotland, because the 100 people know fuck all, and I seem a genius.

Berwick Rangers probably (if not now), Queen of the South, Caley Thistle, I imagine... It's kind of a 4 horse race, though.

Ha, yes! I don't know MUCH about Scotland, but moving there made it clear quite how little I had known before, and how little most Englishers know about the place.
