Jumping back a bit, Corinthian I don't know u from Adam but if u say u know something I know enough to believe u.

Quick Corinthian, tell him you know about a stash of cash in Nigeria.. and if he'll only provide you with his bank account details...

I was under the impression that in the 80's Jimmy ran sub 3 hour marathons?There was always a posse around him and many runners would tag along as his times were very consistent?

Please, even I know the stash of cash isn't in Nigeria, it's in Somalia and is being guarded by pirates! Er, when I say pirates I don't mean those really scary looking dudes in the yellow tops that I keep seein at marathons but am far too intimidated by to say hello! Especially as they can swim, bike and run whereas I can only achieve one of those.

Oh, do you have to be able to swim, run and cycle to be a pirate?  I thought it was just about sex,  alcohol and very tight fitting lycra.   To join the Somalian lot you just need a boat and a gun.

Not sure this is true but as he was such a good cyclist and runner Jimmy was persuaded to try Triathlon once. As it happens, it was a disaster as not only did his cigar get wet but he sank to the bottom of the pool as he wouldn't take off his bling.

A shame really as he would have made a great King of the Pirates.

he wouldn't have fitted in - he didn't drink enough

anyhoo we don't have Kings - it's all about Admirals and Cabin Boys and Seaman Stains etc......

If he had known you had Cabin Boys I am sure Jim would have signed up straight away.

By the way, do you do a shell suit version of the pirate kit?

they're working on it Max - along with pirate gimp masks, pirate wellies, and pirate umbrellas no doubt......the "franchise" is getting a bit out of order for many......

Interesting.

When I read the underlying premise of 'most' religions they usually sound pretty reasonable to me. It is just when I see how people have evolved organisations around them that I start to scratch my head.

I always liked the original pirate thing of some peeps saying you don't have to be superman and buy all the latest stuff to complete an Ironman. It remonds me of Alf Tupper and appeals to the British love of the underdog. If being a pirate is now all about what kit you have, etc then it would seem that it may be in danger of drifting away from its core origins.

By the way, are the pirate wellies to appeal to the Welsh

and there, my friend, you're not far wrong in many people's eyes. but then, things evolve and change and as they say, you can't please all of the people all of the time, or perhaps even some of the people, some of the time.

PS - I'm trying barefoot with the girls these days.....

I may have to take up swimming again..............

I reckon so long as you've got the Pirate top to race in - then you're good to go. Everything else is just extras.

Gimp Mask ? Thats what we get for letting Barley organise Kit !

Drinking and sex? Where's the pirate entry form? Don't say the cabin boy has got it!

Interesting reading .... JS to the Pirates in 12 pages!

I met the man in several social occaisions for many years running (no pin intended) and between myself and my colleagues all I can say is that he gave me the creeps, he was certainly 'an old perv' and thats how we referred to him, nothing ever happned to any of us as far as I know ... twas just an instinct

I wonder how many more will be implicated in this?

I've just read a piece in the news that showed pictures of the 3 women who claim jimmy saville 'interfered' with them. There was a current picture of the women and then a picture of each of them from the 70s and the caption read now, then, now, then, now then......
