It was a time for change, a time for victory. A time for heroes, a time for cartoonish super-villainy and lottery-appointed scapegoats. A time for lazy headline writers to pull the Outdated Pun Dictionary from the back of their Penguin wrapper-laden desk drawer. A time for optimistic introspection.
It was time for the start of the new domestic season.
And that time, my friends, was... now.
