    Granstand or Sports Stadium? You decide
    Who is this guy, Trapper Tony?

    Sports Stadium only got interesting when they started having live Premiership on a Saturday afternoon. I was brought up and reared on Grandstand. David Coleman and Frank Bough were the earliest presenters I remember. The boat race, the Grand National, Wimbledon, Test Matches, rugby internationals - it had it all and of course the teleprinter for the soccer results

    Did you ever notice that in every painting of Adam & Eve, they have belly buttons. Think about that...take as long as you want.

    So farewell then Richard McIlkenny, one of the Birmingham 6, wrongly imprisoned for 16 years. Beaten for 3 days by the police until he signed a confession and even then the confession was tampered with.

    Apparently so, although it wouldn't be the last time the media got it wrong. I'll reserve comment until a week has passed, out of respect for his family. But I'll be back...

    A week has passed

    So farewell then..... Aaron Spelling. Charlie's Angels was one of his shows. Farah Fawcett was my favourite of the three.

    Pity he had to engage in nepotism and get his ugly daughter a lead part in one of his shows (Beverly Hills 909 or something like that).
