Re: The cheer us up memory lane thread

Re: School days...

I was at boarding school in the 1950s for nine months of the year from age 8 to 18. Corporal punishment was common and treatment from bigger, older pupils was worse. I won't recount the things I endured, but when I left school I emigrated to Canada, where accents, received pronunciation and respect ...

Re: Top 5 of all time...

1. Footy. Watching and playing 2. Fell running. Doing 3. Athletics. Watching 4 Boxing. Definitely watching 5. Not sure whether to opt for tennis, rugby or ice hockey, all of which were a decent watch but a long way behind the rest of my list. Never quite understood why hitting someone is considered...

I've commenced drinking. Clockwork Tangerine. Sounds like ponce juice for Beardy types. (TM AT) Nasty beard stuff, you aren't wrong LE. Not as bad as Goose Island though. Worst beer I had the misfortune to drink (luckily a supplier freebie) in decades was Wooha. The only worse beer than that was wh...

Well I did say possibly but his record stands up to scrutiny. His only losses were all controversial points defeats. He fought at a time when his weight division was packed full of world class fighters and he dominated them all. Unlike Ali, who everyone loved, he knew when to quit too. Well, Floyd ...

'Marvellous' Marvin Hagler. Real boxing hero of mine. Mine too. Possibly the GOAT. I thought he may have been older than 66. Some rumours on twitter were suggesting it was related to his covid jab. GOAT? Perhaps of his generation. He won 62 of 67 fights, but Sugar Ray Robinson win 132 fights until ...

I got the Pfizer today. As I anticipated we don't have to wait 12 weeks for the booster. My appointment for the booster is in 16 weeks at the end of June! Not quite as I anticipated! Pfizer recommends three weeks. Pathetic. It even makes Boris look good. Is it cold enough in Canada that they didn't...

Well, we may be catching up with the UK rollout a little. The wife and I get our first Covid jabs on Saturday. probably Pfizer but I'll take whatever is going. None of that Russian muck, mind! I don't think we have to wait 12 weeks for the booster. I guess I'll find out.
