I wanted to vote for the "gentlemen's agreement on the corners" option, but I can't seem to find it.

I wanted to vote for the "someone to identify Byrne's catch" option, but I can't seem to find it.

It's difficult to identify something that doesn't actually exist.

For all you spotters out there, I believe the thing to listen out for is the sound of a cow mooing. Implausible as it may seem, Eton Dad once caught it on camera.

Is Neil rowing, as this should presumably be a lot nearer 100% if he is ?
by Joff - Mon 19th Nov 2007, 8:05pm
Surely a lot nearer 100% if Neil is not rowing and instead doing something which involves lots of running/cycling disguised as a marshal, preferably on a 5'2" girl's bike (pink, with basket) or driving down to Cambridge from the middle of nowhere after work with no brakes. He's probably relatively safe in a boat..

Yes, by that reasoning surely he would be safest doing Fairbairns in a jet. And probably fastest too.
