I'd like to point out that this is not my spot from up here on Yat Rock.Various people have implored me over the last week to blog this.I would have been none the wiser if it had not been for some beady eyed foot soldiers,employed on the minimum wage by my good self.But top work my little darlings,top work.
On the link below we have the superb double act of the late Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.And very funny it is too.Sorry for just the link and not the whole video but the uploading was taking for ever so I took the easy route.
And then please feel free to watch the video below, you will see two of the Barbel angling worlds greats.Sure it's very old footage but take note from the video around 4.45 in. Notice the likeness?
While still on the subject of Barbel,my money is on Dave Stueart to receive the Gordon Scott award at next weekends Barbel Society show.Is there anyone else in the running?Maybe Peter Wheat?Who knows but I will be there in spirit.This weekend I'm on a work party on a local club stretch of river.And if it is like the last ten years,it will be poorly attended as ever.Ho hum,then I'll sort through my tackle ahead of the new season.I reckon I'll start on the Thames this year,but not on opening day.
Now more football........Champions League final at Wembley on Saturday and I was offered two corporate tickets for the game between Barcelona and Manchester United.I thought about it but declined.It just seems wrong for fans from either club to not get tickets.While the people who hang on to the game get a freebie.But I'll have my Spanish hat on this day.And what about Ryan Giggs and we all knew weeks back?Lovely looking wife and you cheated for what?Why go out for a burger Ryan,when you have fillet steak at home.And what about QPR,promoted to the premier league and the board want to put season ticket prices up by 40%.That is a piss take of the highest order,I know two season ticket holders at QPR,who have seen a large increase in the last two seasons.But not on this scale,a shame for the fans.But I'm hardly surprised as the fans are secondary,to the posers they have in charge.I wonder what ours will cost next season?Two Dildos and a Magic Rabbit perhaps.
My god it's raining first time in weeks,about bloody time too!
