I've only seen two, Beth. You're not missing much.

I've never... enjoyed paintballing or any other form of loud, riotous game involving toy weapons, like that other game where you attack each other with lasers. And I've never... hit anyone. What a wimp, eh?
And I don't like James Bond either (the films that is - I do like looking at Daniel Craig), don't like the opera and have never been to a football match either.

Am I the only male here never to have been to a football match... or to have watched one all the way through on TV?

More embarrassingly, I've never read:
Moby Dick
Ulysses
anything by P.G.Wodehouse

but I have read Proust one-and-a-half times... and in French...

I've been to a football match about twice (it may have been the same one). When I was a child. Local league. No wonder I hate the game.

I have however read Moby Dick.

I've never... read anything conventionally regarded as A Classic. I'm pathetically un-well-read.

I have witnessed one act of football first hand though - Crewe vs. York. I was filming them for a documentary at university on Euro 96. We needed footage of people kicking balls in a stadium. One All it was, I think. Given my grade, it should have been 2-2.

Having said that, I did score the winner in a One-Nil thriller, from left back/left wing, in the Five-A-Side Cub Scouts District Cup Final. I think I was nine (feet tall as I accepted the applause).
