This should be interesting. For one thing it'll clear up the question of who's geekier: football geeks, movie geeks, music geeks, or some other sort of geek.

It could well be football geek.

Gutted that this is a 7PM start, new job with weird working hours means I won't be able to make it.

Went last night, very much enjoyed it. Wilson is a fine storyteller.

I liked the fact that they probably sensed that conversation on O'Neill and Keane was exhausted after 3 incessant weeks and they didn't devote much time to it.
