    Has anyone met any sports stars?

    To start things off I have met Petr Cech (ex Arsenal and Chelsea goalie who then went on to play ice hockey) and I ahve also met Rod Stewart's son Liam (ice hockey player)

    This one is true for once,
    Ex welsh international leeds united, and bristol city captain paid our school a visit, mark aizewood.
    A fellow pupil said mark, is it your ambition to win back your place in the welsh squad.
    No he said, my ambition is to have sex on tap, i love shagging me, blah blah blah.
    Even our pe teacher looked to the floor, he was no shirking violet himself.
    Footnote, mark aizewood got 4 years in prison, so lets hope his dream didnt come true!

    A while back, I called into our local Kwikfit to get a tyre changed, It wasn't until they'd jacked my car up and removed the old tyre before they told me they didn't actually have my tyre in stock so I'd have to wait till they could ferry one over from another store (typical stunt by Kwikfit, according to the other half). Anyway, in the waiting area I got talking to a nice chap, and It was only after he left that the bloke on the desk said "He's a nice chap that John". . . "John?" Apparently it was the snooker player John Parrot I'd been chatting to .. . and I never knew. :rolleyes:
    Snooker IS a sport, isn't it? o_O

    Is someone doubting my veracity?
    I was involved with a series of exhibitions and they were appointed to ad a bit of heft.
    Harry Secome came too, now he was a
    real sport.
