GRAND FINAL (16TH APR 2007, BBC2, 8:00PM)

Hi there webloggers!

We have achieved the nearly impossible – even Jeremy Paxman was aghast when we beat UCL so comprehensively after their commanding performances in the previous round.

Actually, the UCL team were the closest we had to UC buddies: we met them in the hotel after they had won their first match in June, and watched (and congratulated) both their victories in the subsequent two rounds. In the twist of fate we had to meet them face-to-face and were completely surprised to come out the better.

The crowd in the audience were the same as the first semi-final (Manchester v Durham) and about 90% were supporting the victorious home team. Most of these cheered on Warwick voraciously as they presumed that we would make weaker opponents against Manchester, until we raced into a 110-point lead – the Warwick supporters made most of the noise afterwards.

Now next up is Manchester in the Grand Final (not called ‘cos you win a grand) – but oh dear Bugadoo had run out of outfits to wear (and so had the rest of the team). So please tune in to the final scruffy instalment of one of the greatest TV quiz shows on British TV.

Make a date with destiny,


April 2007
