For your delectation and delight I have this Friday afternoon decided to publicise my favourite TV quiz show, that is to say QI. It's to my mind the funniest, wittiest thing on TV at the moment, not that this is saying very much I know. Fronted by Stephen Fry if you haven't already seen I urge you to try it.
I'd have to place this in the 'quite interesting' catagory as for the first half it kept me really quite gripped, working well as it does as a thriller. However, I'm afraid that the second half rather lost its way to my mind with a particularly weak ending. Nevertheless if you want something to read on the train, you could do worse than give this a go.
I'm tempted to say a bit of a second rate 'Da Vinci Code'.
What a three days, culminating in the third win on the trot in the Ryder Cup!
The team played magnificantly over all the three days, with each and every one of them pulling for each other. Perhaps this element of a 'team' was one of the crucial differences between Europe and the US. Montgomery as the senior pro led from the front, why oh why can he not reproduce this form in a major? I saw Ton Lehmann interviewed after Europe had won and I have to say 'what a gentleman', magnanimous in defeat, he was a credit to his team. European Ryder Cup captain Ian Woosnam admited that he felt under great pressure to win the Ryder Cup, but praised his team for fulfilling their winning potential, after he had got soaked in champagne and downed a pint of Guiness in one on the balcony!
