I must admit I had a laugh applying for the latest round of fantasy golf. Having come 97th out of 11,000 in the last competition (a rousing late flourish thanks partly to Angel Cabrera’s US Open Victory) I wanted to capitalise by entering more than one team.

Having filled in a photocopy of the form, from Saturday’s Scotsman, I realised that you’re not allowed to enter with photocopied forms.






So, under my pseudonym (Marecello Santos Gaspotchoanteremidos – or something like that) I penned the following letter.

Wish me luck..

Thank you BBC for a fine Friday evening’s TV.

Bjork was stunning.

Arctic Monkeys were awesome.

Amy Winehouse was sultry.

It’s too early to show some of it but here’s a sample of them live anyway.

Nice moment

My car must have got at least part of the way to Rome judging from this.


Weather forecast for Lagos. We’re looking forward to sampling it.

Last night’s programme nicely encapsulated the Bliar years.

War? What’s it good for? Absolutely nothing!

That’s what Frankie said.

Frankie was right.

Bye Bye Bliar.

See ya!

Wouldn’t wanna be ya!
