Election Upset

Rank outsider wins the gold statuette.

Really surprised by the result. I, like everyone else, thought Daniel Day-Lewis was a shoe in for his performance in 'Millwall Fan Chews Up The Scenery: Part II'.

But then, I thought Dan the Geezer - as he's known down the New Den - was going to win the gold statuette for 'Millwall Fan Chews Up The Scenery: Part I' back in 2002.

I was gutted when he lost out to Pat Nevin.

Surely thats not Pat Nevin darren, its Alistair Mcgowan! has to be...

JC and Highlander,

Guilty as charged.

I know I was stretching it a bit with the Nevin/Brody comparison.

Could have been worse. Zach Braff could have been nominated that year and, then, I would have had to fall back on this piis-poor comparison.

Thought you'd like to also know that Mr Nevin is not endearing himself to Celtic fans at the moment....

No way is Nevin a Hibbee. (Or at least, I'd be disappointed if it was discovered that that was the case.)

Storm in a tea cup is all I can say from reading the thread - though I'm sure it would have rankled if I'd heard them at the time.)

And:
". . . he hilariously told listeners that the Sky stats showed Barca had 104% possesion at one stage."

That's funny. Wish I'd thought of it.
