Right there with you on South William Street, Nearys, and the Grand Canal. Disappointed that the new UPC ads featuring that ridebag Craig Doyle didn't make your list.

Radge said...

They were a close 1,052nd.

Andrew said...

I made the list (presuming you're not just referring to the general phenomenon of chancing one's arm)! In your face everyone except Twenty, Therese, Kitty cat and T-Cup!

Word verification: radie
So close.

Radge said...

The listmaker's remorse starts now, ten minutes after its publication.

I can't believe I forgot Jeff Stelling.

Holemaster said...

You only just noticed your back garden?

51) Hi-Fidelity.

Radge said...

No, the tree I only noticed yesterday. It's small.

51) I assume you don't mean the Nick Hornby book?

I holefartedly agree with number 26.

Kitty Cat said...

Oh! That's me! YAY! T Cup has left the blog though so I'm taking ALL the delicious glory. Tasty it is, too.

Conan Drumm said...

A perfectly good list - though I'm entirely ignorant on the footie front. However re #45, shouldn't that be a bit closer to the top, ie #41?

Radge said...

No.41 was a direct reference to the previous list. This is me, drunkenmost.

Therese Cox said...

Completely pleased to find m'self comfortably nestled between a well-worn hat and The Long Hall. I see no further need to do a damn thing all weekend.

Radge said...

Therese, you clearly need to take it easy for all us sinners.

McMuck and the Mystery of the Kuúgleflarg said...

51. The further sinking of Liverpool FC

Radge said...

Why would you goad me?

Sarah Gostrangely said...

With you completely on 50 and 23.
But what about Fair City?

Kath Lockett said...

You had me at 26....

notRuairi said...

2 + 27 + 39 + 47 = particular highlights from that list.

If you're into footy as much as me, here's one for your next list.

P.S. Totally stealing this idea!

Radge said...

Good site that, cheers.
