You may get a slug in the mouth if you call Muhammed Ali by that name. Especially as he changed it 47 years ago.
My Mum and Dad too - both in their late 70s and although in good health won't be around for ever - have given us 3 children so much love and support with so many personal sacrifices without much money - can never ever begin to say thank you!!
Steve Ovett for inspiring me.
Steve Jones for showing the world the way to go.
Paula Radcliff for following on from Steve
Eammon Martin for being Eammon a down to earth bloke
Charlie Spedding from last to First
Liam Brady just for THAT goal at White Hart Lane all those years ago!!
I knew that would crop up.
But for me what he called hisself is irrelevent. He's still the greatest ever.
BoTF - if you get to be a lord for being in/directing a few films, just goes to show what a load of nonsense the whole honours thing is anyway?
I wouldn't actually cross the road to shake hands with any famous/sports people - I'd be embarrassed at sticking myself in their space, and they might just want to be left alone to get on with their shopping.
If I met someone famous at an event where they are "at work", then I will say hello.
A musical hero of mine once apologised to my wife for his hair getting in the way when she & our kids were sat behind him at a panto.
No prizes for guessing it was Brian May - what a gent.
