19.30 – I got an email today from someone today to tell me that Peter Brackley does indeed have legs and quite often attends the matches he commentates on. I sent them an email back asking them to forward one of Peter Brackley’s legs as proof. It seems to have shut them up. There’s a picture of the legless wonder on the ITV football website. A head and shoulders shot, nothing from the waist down. Coincidence or are they hiding something?
Speaking of hiding something, have a look at this.
Newcastle again tomorrow in the FA cup. I think Edu will start in midfield. I could be wrong. I often am. It’d be a nice game to win, but not the end of the world if we don’t. Again, I think we’ll have too much for them. Step up Dennis.
11.14 – Interesting fact for you. Did you know that ITV commentator Peter Brackley has no legs and never attends live matches? He commentates from a state of the art room in his house, with 5 flat screen monitors showing all the action, while he sits in a hi-tech console allowing him to move 360 degrees with the push of a button. He also makes his co-commentators sample his special home brewed Lambrusco before they are allowed in the studio. Paul Elliot says it takes like goat’s piss. We won’t ask how he knows what goat’s piss tastes like.
Added+ – Sol Campbell wallpaper. As usual, it’s in the ‘OTHER’ section above. Also, you’ll find a reasonably good Dennis Bergkamp article here.
