I was considering entering Sport Mastermind but then realised I'd have to read up on some specialist subjects, and I'm way too lazy for that. But I reckon OoO (F1/Footballers on the Verge of Death), Maryport (Carlisle Utd/Fiery Crashes), Handy (TT Races), Ronnie (Wisconsin Sports Teams/Twenty20 Cricket) and DDT (Tractor Pulling) should send in an application form...

Doesn't seem quite the same without Magnus, though.


I'm sure I've posted on here about this already but I put Mrs Rotten up for Sport Mastermind and she came 2nd in her programme.

So was I, funnily enough.

But it's not enough to just name your specialist subjects, you have to provide sources, back-up material & proof for your subjects. f**k that for a lark.

My specialist subjects would've been:

sh*t footballers of Reading FC (a toughie because there's been so many, including most of the current squad)

The Formula 1 Career of Formula 1 Drivers with a surname beginning with Q
There's only 1. He only did 1 race. :angry:

Once Mastermind, now Maggotmind :rip:

Feel free to, but do we look bothered? :(

The BBC is now reporting that it was pancreatic cancer... no wonder he didn't mention the type... :rip:

His cancer was diagnosed on his 77th birthday last year. Not the greatest birthday present.


Nope, but if he'd died on that self-same birthday it'd have been a points bonanza for deadpoolers on a couple of lists.
