Was at a Notts & Derbys Chamber of Commerce posh dinner last night. Margaret Hodge MP did the keynote between the main course and pud. She was very good fair play but went on about ten minutes longer than she needed to. I noticed she shot straight off as soon as the speech was finished.
The star turn was Radio4 Today programme presenter John Humphrys, also very good, fair play :). Afterwards he took questions and I got in first with “how much did he think Wales would beat England by tomorrow.” I was wearing my Welsh Dragon bow tie and judging from the reaction of the audience he and I were the only Welshmen in the 300 strong audience. He reckoned we would win by 9 points.
So today’s Timico megamug prize competition is all about tomorrow’s rugby match. Guess the total number of points scored, nearest guess wins the megamug. Only one entry per score so if your number has gone chose another.
As a bonus if you’d care to say who is going to win and by how many points there is a super dooper Timico pen in it for everyone who guesses right. No limit on how many people can guess this one – you can all go for Wales to win by 8 if you like.
Because it’s my game I get to go first and I’m going for 40 points total with Wales to win by 8 points which makes the score 24 – 16 to us.
Get yer bets on now.
PS John Humphrys also shot off as soon as he was finished. I was going to tell him about the time I appeared on the Today Programme with Evan Davies (no relation afaik) 🙂
