<3 just realised he looks like robert de niro
medieval devil that looked exactly like Jim Rosenthal. I shall see if I can find said pic.
...from Sesame Street. He looks just like both.
(And Mr Burns).
I liked it on Fantasy Football when they swapped Mark Lawrenson's hair for the roof of a thatched cottage and vice versa. Football related comedy hasn't reached that zenith since.
ah I remember the thatched roof/head swap, genius. And to think we have James Corden on tv now.
if you’ve not heard it yet.
"Ince to see you, to see you INCE!" from Fantasy Football.
*some guest is on FF talking about sex changes*
SKINNER: That's fascinating. Oh, and if any Wolves fans are unsure as to what a sex change procedure involves - it's exactly the same thing as when you switched managers from Graham Taylor to Mark McGhee...
a lot of people think he is. Apart from his love of comic books and John Peel-esque indie, there were (well-founded) rumours that he was behind the Samuel Johnson twitter-page (he is the president of the Johnson Society).
He's a bit of a dick (just watching his chat show will tell you that) but his sharpness and comic mind is up there with the best. He was on fine form on that Brooker programme last year, whilst analysing the Michael Jackson funeral...
"...and then Usher came on and he gave his speech, in tears, which was all very surreal. And then he just went down the steps and put his hand on the coffin - which I couldn't work out whether or not it was a genuine display of affection, or that he'd started to take his name a bit too literally."
to magnify how Fantasy Football is such a brilliant show compared to the astoundingly awful James Corden one. Soccer AM was somewhere midway between the two.
Wonder where Stato is these days..
...in horse racing journalism and gambling expertise. I'd wager. I can't remember his name, Angus something...
He had a column entitled 'For the Better' in the Telegraph. He was notoriously shit at picking winners though.
I've stopped that now.
...I always say "Can I have a Jim RosenTHAL please?".
This may or may not be a lie.
