    I sat on this beach (Cocoa Beach Florida) and watched a Delta Rocket take off and what's there today - a bloody seagull!!

    I was 23, fit as a fiddle, hadn't met Mermaid yet and thought the world was my oyster. Soon got that crap knocked out of me...

    I was a distraught 12 year old who had just seen my beloved Blyth Spartans shockingly denied a home tie against Arsenal in the FA Cup Quarter Final by one of worst refereeing decisions ever (even Jimmy Hill on Match of the Day stated it was wrong and a shocking decision).

    Even to this day his name is still infamous in the town, not many 40 something's don't know the name; Alf Grey.

    Have we moved on have we sh*te, bloody referees still sh*te now 36 years on should of had a penalty today but he bottled it because it was in last 5 minutes.

    Football eh
    Why do we put ourselves through it

    I was giving birth to my daughter. Well, I missed it actually. I was getting a coffee from the machine, had only been at the hospital about 10 minutes and out she popped, couldnt wait to see what it was all about. Her nickname is Beaky, a right nosey cow. On her 16th birthday she was off, I will do what I want now, nowt you can do to stop me, she was right, as usual. The apple didnt fall far...........
