One time in the Centenary Lower as it was at the time, when a few people found out my name against Everton, about 50 odd people started singing "There's only 2 Tim Howards"

Literally thats all I have!

I always wondered why we started singing that one!

On a similar note, walking up the steps in the STBL for a night math. Came from work so I was in a suit and in desperate need of a haircut. Met with a loving rendition of "2 Boris Johnson's"

A couple of years ago I did the Guinness World Record attempt at Peter Pans in Southend, or Adventure Island as it's now called, for the most amount of people to ride naked on a roller coaster. I think the record was at 102 people but only 50 odd turned up so we didn't break the record.

As you can imagine the WR attempt was reported in the local and national news streams in which I manged somehow not to be captured in shot with exception of one picture that was published in the Star http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest- ... een-Scream" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I'm the one with a pert bum :oops:

Was on the cover of a Desmond Dekker album recorded at Dingwalls in the 80s(on Trojan Records).
Been in Scootering magazine a few times back then as well.
Was on thames news twice (also in the 80s) .
Some woman had sailed round the world or something and they were filming her on the thames at tower bridge and me and my mate were in shot.There was a big ska gig at the astoria and they were filming the queue outside,as it was being tipped to become quiet big again(Simon Bates even played some tunes on his show on Radio 1).

I had a picture and an article covering a third of a page of the Eastern Daily Press when my friend and I found an injured racing pigeon on the railway tracks. This was almost 40 years ago. All it really shows is how little actual happens in Norfolk.

Been in Q magazine a couple of times, as part of their 'Where in the world' feature, in which readers send in pics of themselves reading Q in different locations around the globe....I was in Vietnam and Iceland.

I was also a guest editor for the Times a few years back, reviewing the previous day's paper. It was just before the Grand National, so I thought I'd try and see how many names of horses I could 'hide' in the article. 14 of the 21 I put in, made it past the post.
