I Was There!

Recently WWD posted a music clip of Pink Floyd live and mentioned he was at that very concert. 8-)

So what concert, sporting event, news story etc were you present at?

Proof to back up your claim would be nice, but not essential. :dance:

At the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, Diego Maradona scored two of the most talked about goals in football history. First the "Hand of God" goal, then when he got the ball in his own half and ran through the whole England defence. :o



At the game I sat directly in line with his punch and five seats away from Geoff Hurst - England's 1966 hat-trick hero.

Here's a photo of me (with dodgy facial hair) and my mate Geoff at the game. 8-)

Don't know if this counts, but there was this silly movie, Monte Carlo, and it was shot in Budapest, but not only just random in Bp, but at my school! :D There's actually bits in the trailer (haven't seen the film, not really interested :P ) where you can see the building ;) I rember when they were shooting the movie: they dragged a lot of palmtrees and expensive cars there and voila, that's Monte Carlo for you :P

I've met Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey) and James Thornton.

They moved next door to Mum, in London, so we used to chat. They are really lovely.
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Andrea Bocelli - those are the only ones of note. Can't remember the years, long time ago.

I was at one of the last concerts when the Spice Girls still had Geri Halliwell. All proof has been destroyed.

Actually, isn't it Zig instead of Jig? :oops:
