  1. Following on from a comment made a while ago in the "Near Misses" thread, here's a list that might be worth a thought or two when selection time comes round again - and before anyone asks, I'd heard of all of them! Still Batting And before anyone mentions it, I know that Mushtaq Ali has died but the list is from June 7th - it does get updated regularly though!

    Very Blue Peter

    I see Caron Keating has died of cancer - was she a miss from this years list?

    Benn There, Done It?

    Tony Benn has been rushed to hospital from the Labour conference, according to Sky.

    Ray Clemence

    I see that Ray is suffering: Ray Cancer Shocker! Sounds optimistic of making a full recovery but might be worth keeping a watch over?

    Magnus Magnusson

    According to today's Guardian, Magnus Magnusson has been in hospital for some emergency surgery - anyone know any more?

    Birthdays, Births, Anniversaries, etc... for 2009

    Thank you very much - sadly the only hangover I experience these days is the one over my waistband.......

    Another "famous For Being Old" Candidate

    I know it probably fails the "famous enough" test, but it's interesting nonetheless: Last Widow

    Room 101

    1) People wearing tracksuits who clearly haven't done any exercise for over 10 years 2) Tourists on the underground who think a tube map at the top of escalators are designated meeting points 3) People who think Eastenders is quality television and a true depiction of life in the east end 4) Lazy/vindictive/rabble rousing journalism 5) Footballers who celebrate scoring like you would if you'd found a cure for cancer, won the lottery and saved the planet from certain destruction 6) TV executives who think anything requiring one iota of thought or featuring a semblence of culture is too highbrow I've only been up half an hour, I'm sure some more things will annoy me later on

    Drunk? Bored?? Psychopath???

    I did read the latest news, but being a miserable sod I couldn't think of anything to say that wasn't inappropriate or cantankerous. Still, now I know there are 2 glamourous ladies with newfound freedom I might have to start smartening up my act!

    What are you doing on here at past midnight? It's only the sad and desperate who do such things, you'd never catch me being that tragic. Hang on........ Oh bugger.

    Death List Convention

    I'm in London most of the year, but by a masterstroke I'm going to be in the good ol' US of A in October - I'm sure this meeting in October thing is done deliberately.

    Birthdays, Births, Anniversaries ,etc ...for 2008

    Thanks for the birthday wishes, people - just to reassure my non-existant fans, I am still around these parts but choose my postings carefully these days! It's either that or they've blocked Deathlist at work, one of the two........

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    Seem to be doing slightly better in the current test, however. Probably time for some unseasonal rain in Wellington.

    Britney Spears, Kerry Catona, Heather Locklear et al.

    Great opportunity to play "join the dots" on her left thigh.....

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    The next match from Napier is due to start in 3 minutes - I trust everyone is glued to Sky/TMS in eager anticipation.

    Cheeta(h) the Chimpanzee(s)

    It's Spongebob Squarepants. Blimey, don't they teach these young'uns anything in school these days?;-) I'm alarmed that Wizbit is now appearing in these nostalgia shows and such like - I didn't think my childhood was THAT long ago!

    Bearing in mind that the national sport of Finland is a variant of baseball, have any Finnish players made it to the MLB ranks?

    Cheeta(h) the Chimpanzee(s)

    Anyone care to explain why he has Wizbit on his head?

    But they'll be very polite about it.......

    Heather Mills

    You were a loss to News at Ten, weren't you?
  23. The Four Horsemen


    Japan would surely give them a run for their money? Provided all the MLB players hailing from Japan were allowed back, of course......

    American Football Players

    I'd be more than happy for the NFL to franchise out a team to us - they could call them the London Monarchs.....or maybe not. I've never understood the whole booing of national anthems et al - didn't happen during the rugby world cup so I'm assuming it's just a football thing. I translated the booing for John Terry as a social comment on him bottling somebody in a night club and then getting let off because he's famous. However, I now understand that playing for Chelsea is much worse and he should be disembowelled immediately.

    American Football Players

    Well, I was in attendance at Wembley yesterday and I'm pleased to report that the popularity stakes were as follows: 1) Lewis Hamilton 2) Martin Johnson 3) The Miami Cheerleaders 4) The streaker 5) The Feeling 6) The Dolphins team 7) The Giants team 8) The military marching band at halftime 9) The Mexican Wave 10) John Terry My personal favourite moment was John Terry getting simultaneously booed by 80,000 people, nicely juxtaposed between the huge cheers for Martin Johnson and Lewis Hamilton! I think there was an American Football match in there somewhere as well......
