The Swans play Newcastle today at Liberty Stadium. I never quite managed to get hold of a season ticket (it was that or paying the gas bill) but it can be almost as atmospheric watching a game on the big screen in the "function suite" in the Bogarth Arms even if some of the content is Greek (perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned that).
Anyway, as much as the ascendancy of the Swans into the premier league has electrified a good proportion of south west Wales football fans and many others throughout the UK, the club's continued success is seldom mentioned let alone celebrated by the suits at BBC Wales Sport.
Take today for instance. There is only one game in the premier league (Swansea v Newcastle). Yet the three main lead stories on the BBC Wales Sport website are:
Davies warns of pressure on North
Bennett writes off Blues chances
Mackay hits out a match schedule
The Llandaff brigade convinced themselves early on that the Swans' promotion was a glitch and fully expected to see them playing in the Championship next season. As things stand, that seems to be the Bluebirds scenario.
One final point on how license fee money gets spent in Wales, if you are lucky enough to get into the match, look at the centre section on the main stand and check out the number of BBC Wales Sports people enjoying their freebies.
