    Sammy the Shrimper

    Not sure where to put this, but a lovely story re the Funeral of Sammy the Shrimp from BBC Dave, 34, from Manchester, was Manchester City’s Moonchester from 2000 to 2008. If you’re not familiar with Moonchester, it’s basically a massive, sky-blue alien. One of the stories he told us was about...

    New Papa John's Mascot

    Just wanted to throw a big shout out to the new Papa John's "Slice of Pizza" mascot as a testament to advances in match-day costume design, the developing use of technology in these crafts and the hard work that created such a work of perfection. If the same devotion, care and attention goes...

    Ant and Dec (from Hecklerspray)

    With the exception of the time when one of them was shot on the eyes with a paintball gun and went blind, Ant and Dec have never been in so much trouble. Between ripping off viewers with rigged text-in competitions and now the news that a British Comedy Award they won was also rigged, the...

  10. Question Where's Sammy?

    I wonder if you could help me? Before Sammy the Shrimper last shed his skin to be reincarnated as the current matchday crustacean we have come to know and love, he was a bright pink fluffy creature. Since the football club no longer loans out the present Sammy outfit (poor show!) for special...

    The Olympics

    I went along this afternoon to see the Olympic Flame pass through our nation's fine capital. I for one, am excited about the prospect of the Olympics coming to Britain in 4 years time. For me there is something special about the Olympics going all the way back to its roots in Ancient Greece...
