Have you ever -

1. Eaten Caviar ?
Yes on several occasions it’s something I can live without if I’m honest

2. Sang Karaoke ?
Once badly

5. Flown in a Helicopter ?
We love the Isles of Scilly & our favourite mode of transport getting there was by chopper. Great experience

8. Stood or sat in the Home section at a Leeds away match ?
Yes several times the last time was at Forest (0-4 Gary Speed R.I.P. night )

9. Rode a Tandem ?
Many years ago yes

10. Been Potholing/caving ?
Tend to be a bit claustrophobic so not something I’d not do or enjoy. The only caves I’ve been in are Kent’s Cavern in Torquay.

2. Sang (Tried to) Karaoke

A limited number of times, mainly drunk as a newt on holiday with the lads when I was much, much younger.

5. Flown in a helicopter -

Had a number of flying lessons in helicopters, flew over the Etihad stadium and also the stadium where a certain other club in Manchester play. I was supposed to be having a flying lesson in a plane this year, but this has been suspended due to the virus. I’m hoping to do that later this year, and fly over our house.

8. Sat in the home end at away games -

Travelled to away games hundreds of times, but that’s one thing I’ve never done.

10. Potholing -

Did it at school once, never done it since and never will again. Really not my cup of tea.

Have you ever -
1. Eaten Caviar ? - No reckon it'll give me gout

2. Sang Karaoke ? Not with my singing voice (so i'm told)

3. Done a Bungee Jump ? Hell will freeze over first can't see how it can do your insides any good travelling in one direction then zooming back in the other.

4. Drank a Yard of Ale ? Yes had a bash, spilled a drop or two.

5. Flown in a Helicopter ? - Yes just once at the Grand Canyon

6. Drove a Classic Sports Car ? Not unless you count a Vauxhall Viva :D

7. Line Danced ? No shame but yes, on holiday in Spain couple of years ago Mrs SW decided we give it a go. She fancied trying it here but however hard I've tried can't find anywhere they do it :shh:

8. Stood or sat in the Home section at a Leeds away match ? Many Times, funniest moment was at Old Trafford when someone phoned me and my ring tone was MOT. Fortunately it was under my coat and nobody was sure whose phone was ringing, with everyone looking at each other :angel:

9. Rode a Tandem ? Only for 5 mins, my cousin and her husband bought one so you have to have a go don't you :D

10. Been Potholing/caving ? - Was 17 or 18 and went to one of the Outdoor pursuits centres for a week and one day we went down below crawling about caves with freezing cold water. Not for me seems a little too dangerous, just felt the place was going to flood at any moment.

Have you ever -
1. Eaten Caviar

Yes a few times, but not the real expensive stuff, so not sure what the fuss is about

2. Sang Karaoke ?

No. My singing career finished at a wedding many years ago when my then girlfriend pointed out that my attempts at the hymns were spoiling the occasion.

3. Done a Bungee Jump ?

No - totally out of the question as I'm scared of heights

4. Drank a Yard of Ale

Yes many moons ago

5. Flown in a Helicopter ?
6. Drove a Classic Sports Car

Drove an MG-B on the M4 for a while probably in 1971, but I'm thinking it wasn't a classic then

7. Line Danced

Think I tried it once when living in Texas. When it's done well it's good to watch

8. Stood or sat in the Home section at a Leeds away match

Yes remember being in the home end at Hillsborough when Ian Snodin scored a peach of a goal. Managed to restrict my celebration to the slight raising of one eyebrow.

Went with Florist mates to the City ground for a League One game and we won 2-1 with a last minute goal.

Don't know if this counts but was in a box at Pride Park when Ian Harte scored a late penalty to win the game 1-0. Waving a Leeds scarf around did upset some of the nearby locals.

9. Rode a Tandem ?
10. Been Potholing/caving ?
Might have to take an interest in the Premier League now....

1. Eaten Caviar ?
Probably, but it clearly didn't make much of an impression on me.
2. Sang Karaoke ?
Definitely but not well. I would choose Dionne Warwick's version of Walk on by and then try to sing the Stranglers' version over it.
3. Done a Bungee Jump ?
No. Thought about it a few times when I was travelling around Oz 30 years ago.
4. Drank a Yard of Ale ?
Possibly.
5. Flown in a Helicopter ?
Yes. In the late 80's, at the Bristol Balloon Festival, there was someone doing 15 minute trips in one. The other half said she wanted a go so we paid up and were strapped in. I'd never flown before so when it took off, nose facing the ground, I was bricking it. It was a good trip, nice views of Bristol and over the Severn and when we landed my legs were like jelly but I was euphoric.
6. Drove a Classic Sports Car ?
No
7. Line Danced ?
I sincerely hope not.
8. Stood or sat in the Home section at a Leeds away match ?
Nope
9. Rode a Tandem ?
No
10. Been Potholing/caving ?
See previous post.

11. Flown in a Glider
No
12. Been to a music festival
Yes. Dozens but either they're changing or I'm getting older. And I'm certainly not getting older.
13. Eaten Sushi
Yep.
14. Been a collector of anything (stamps, coins, football programmes, etc)
Not really.
15. Played Backgammon
Yes. Also Ludo, Monopoly and Snakes and Ladders. :?
16. Been to a major sporting event in any of the following :-
a) Rugby League
b) Rugby Union
Autumn Internationals in 2000. I was working in the ticket office of Twickenham Railway Station and we were given so many free tickets.
c) Horse Racing
d) Cricket
1992 World Cup in Oz. England v Australia, England v South Africa.
e) Tennis
