My more minor claims include a mention in the Lancet for being one of the earliest Rhesus baby survivors, being on Radio Nottingham when my mate and I had Peter Powell stunt kites and we were battling (no one had steerable kites 'til then - though it was only because my mate's sister was going out with the Radio's reporter!), pic of me on p. 5 of the Daily Mirror and having the same name as a certain well known cyclist (of which I'd be proud if he wasn't such a total tw4t!)
Whatever and ever. Amen

Peter Powell stunt kites, that has just brought back some fond childhood memories  :)

My brother appeared on page 3 of the sun. No, not that bit!
Basically the plonker went out with his mates, drove to an open prison and stole loads of clothes!

Not a claim to Fame, but an "I was there moment". Click on the link and the first Owen goal for Liverpool you'll see a bloke in a yellow coat jump up behind the goal by the left hand post waving his arms, that's me! ::)

No I wasn't a steward, they're looking the other way!
