On a brighter note:
my grandfather designed the machines and oversaw the manufacturing of after eight mints. He's also responsible for putting the bubbles in aero's. (so to speak!)

Tried crossing a dual carriageway in a Fiat Panda and got broadsided, I ended up on the pavement opposite and car who hit me ended up in a park in the flower beds, 1 hr later I was playing competitive squash, nothing phased me in these days.

Cricket seems to be a theme here. Also got 10 for in an innings. Lance Klusener dislocated my little finger but I had him caught the next over. KP, Hashim Amla and Shaun Pollock have also been victims.

I have a black belt in both Brazilian Jiu Jitsu &Tae Kwondo.

Just yesterday I was accused on another forum by one of their admins for being someone I'm not, was told I was a former member that was banned from there merely because I live in the same town! Wouldn't mind but never come across the fella he said I was!

When I was a kid I got to punch Gary Mason RIP in the face for charity....

I have appeared on two BBC quiz shows.
"Bobs Full House" with Bob Monkhouse and "Whatever Next" with Noel Edmonds.
Bob Monkhouse was a lovely bloke. I hate Noel Edmonds.

That's not a random fact - that's showing off.

Almost forgot, I met Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson at the bar during the Open at Royal Troon one year, was so shocked I had no idea what to say, still regret not saying something!

I come from the same Village as A.P McCoy and played football in his garden one summer when he was recovering(almost fully) from a broken leg gained through the horse racing.

Someone commented he must be loaded as he is playing on wet grass in Armani jeans. As a young teenager I had no clue what they were on about.

Nice fella, but not the best at Headers and Volleys lol
