Motherwell reach cup Semi final - might win/will then lose final to Old Firm

Motherwell reached the Scottish Cup Semi Final today after a 3-0 rout of Dundee United, and in other news I had a sandwich earlier!

I didn't watch the game partly because I really don't care, and secondly because I was playing football myself:

Motherwell beat holders Dundee United in a replay at Fir Park to set up a Scottish Cup semi-final meeting with St Johnstone at Hampden.
Jamie Murphy fired the Steelmen in front early on and Chris Humphrey converted from close range to add a second before the break.
Francis Jeffers rifled home Well's third on 63 minutes as the home side continued to dominate.
United rarely threatened, Scott Robertson having a shot saved late on.
'Well will now face Saints at the national stadium on Saturday 16 April, Aberdeen taking on Celtic in the other semi-final at the same venue the following day.
I've only actually heard of Francis Jeffers from that report but I do have a friend called Jamie Murphy.  I just phoned him and it's not the same guy.  In a parallel future universe Aberdeen decide to try against Celtic and a team from the Old Firm don't just win so this cup looks to really be on fire this year!  Except that it doesn't count unless you beat Celtic or Rangers in the final anyway.  Now, about that sandwich...
