I tripped on the pavement near my house, catching me completely my surprise and slamming my face and right hand into the pavement. The most expensive bit was scratching my main glasses and needing completely new lenses.
It was my own fault. There is a woman who walks her dogs near me, with a permanent scowl and always complaining at the dogs. I was too busy looking at her and wondering if she had ever been happy when...bang. To her credit she did stop to check I was okay.
I see there are age categories for the record on http://www.beermile.com/records, with the over 50s in the Grand Masters. Surely we have some world class talent in that age group. What odds would you give on Ovett vs Cram vs Coe?
This is surely an event when our heritage of cask ales could help, The rules do say the beer has to be at least 5% alcohol, which rules out most by normal tipples. So perhaps Badgers Golden Champion, which gets to the 5% mark without being too heavy.
