Game 42 Season 2 (20-23 Mar)

THE ‘MR PRICKLEPANTS RED-CARDED ON A SATURDAY’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

So named because of the weekend birthdays of the worst James Bond actor, Timothy Dalton (you were great in Flash Gordon though, Tim!) who was 69 (oo-er), Lee ‘red card’ Cattermole was 27, and Rochelle Wiseman, whoever you are, apparently you were 39. (EDIT: Apparently now has the married name Humes, but this doesn’t help…)

THE CATEGORIES
