In Topic: Food and drink thread

I have a big silly beard, and jeans that are too tight for me (cos I can't afford any larger sizes at the mo).


Am I a hipster?


Perhaps not as the Hull FC fans the other week unkindly referred to me as a grumpy Father Christmas.


Foodwise, and back on topic, I had a fantastic salad, chicken, onion wrap on Saturday night in Perpignan.  €4 and it was worth every centime.  Late night, fast food at its finest.

The Catalan Dragons tried it last night but the scrum was reset by the referee.

A couple of nights ago, Interpol and the Arctic Monkeys at the roman arena in Nimes.


The AM's are not really my thing but put on quite a show, and the drummer doesn't half give the skins a whack.


Interpol were quite simply the loudest band I have ever witnessed.  The noise made my eyeballs hurt.  Venue staff were handing out earplugs!

I hope that Simon benefits from the move in a similar way to the way that Larroyer has improved at Hull KR.


He's a big, very strong lad with plenty of heart.  Just goes to ground too quickly for me, and rarely gets his nose through the line.   The first things you can't coach, the second you potentially can.  And as for Vaccari, good effort Fred!  Didn't ever really recover from his bad injury a couple of years ago, but never let the side down and was very entertaining for his wholehearted approach.

I do like him as a broadcaster, both on radio and tv, but find it somewhat incredible that Tony Livesey has survived his previous media incarnation at the Sport "newspapers" with the delightful David Sullivan and then managed to move into the main stream media.


See also Karren Brady.


…and the "preening ninny" with the outstandingly coloured hair survives.  Does he still do his execrable phone in bit?
