A Sunday roast with a difference?
Should Newcastle United lose to Sunderland on Sunday it would spark a public holiday on Wearside as well condemning Toon fans to months of misery that no amount of alcohol will make go away.
However, to do that, Roy Keane's team must come to St James's Park with fire in their bellies, overcome a team playing with confidence, silence a home crowd who will be hellbent on creating a cauldron of noise and somehow stop Oba Martins, Michael Owen and Mark Viduka from continuing their recent run of eight goals in the last four games between the goalscoring trio.
Oh, and Joey Barton's due a goal as well after a string of classy displays alongside the reborn figure of Geremi and the man possessed that is Nicky Butt.
And I forget to mention the watertight defence that Blog on the Tyne understands have been arguing over who gets to mark Kenwyne Jones.
OK, maybe I'm sounding too optimistic but can you see it going any other way than a home win?
Tempting fate maybe but the wave of optimism has left me to come to only two conclusions.
One is a resounding win similar to the 4-1 win in Alan Shearer's last game when the team were also on a fine late season run.
The other is the "freak" option that sees United batter Sunderland for 90 minutes without getting their rewards and then Michael Chopra scoring the winner at St James's Park.
But I certainly cannot see Sunderland coming to St James's Park and dominating the game and wiping the floor with United.
At Portsmouth United ran a good team very close in their own backyard while the teams that are still haunted by relegation in Reading and Fulham have been swept aside at St James's Park.
Then you have the Tottenham away win which resulted in them carving up the Londoners on the break four times on a day when it could easily have been more.
Nobody really needs to tell the lads ahead of Sunday that defeat is not an option and a draw would probably be like winning a trophy for Sunderland.
Bring it on.
WHAT DO YOU PREDICT FOR THE BIG ONE ON SUNDAY?
