    Default Great Sporting Moment

    Oddly enough ... he's a relative apparently , we obviously share the same surname so when he was in his prime ( which lasted a fair while ) we could never use our real name when ordering a taxi !!


    Sadly never met him even though we are distantly related ..

    My memories are more sketchy than that - I remember Brazil winning and that Jairzinho (billed as "Jair" after one goal) scored in every round
    Time flies like the wind, fruit flies like bananas - go figure!

    A great claim to fame - I hope you have never been speeding on the road...
    I am a man (just in case anyone asks).

    Though it has - as an englishman to be the 19666 World Cup Win, whicch was sadly 11 years before my time, the other 2 greatest moments must go (in order) to:

    1) My beloved Barnsley FC - doing a "Wimbledon" but of more epodemic proportions an landing the Premiership/Premier Leauge for 1997-98

    2) The Italian 1990 World Cup along with Euro 96 (on home soil) where that was the time I was truly mesmoized by Football and hown England swept away every team of any standing before us (and again was cruley denied a place in a major Final - which if it was'nt for the Penalties ia m 1000% we'd have won that final (just like in 1990 with "that scene" of Gazza crying his eyes out! Again Gazza is another famous star who had his demons, but what a legend the guy is - he is just "so England through and through" and guy who'd do anything for anyone and the best English Footballer to walk these shores and any he has walked! On a sub-note I have ambitions of meeting him later in the Summer "at a meet and greet type event" and if I remember/have the guts I shall tell exactly what esteem and more i hold him in!! What a legend and an icon indeed!!
