I'll concede it can get a bit overly exuberant in there and we do seem to have more than our fair share of gingers. Still, it didn't stop the much lamented Princess of Wales visiting that time.

My friend hurt his back once so he made me watch a game in the Mira stand because he couldn't face standing in the Shed.

A couple in front of us were talking and the woman said "so what are the rules then?" And the bloke said "I'm not sure I think you have to get that odd shaped ball over that line over there"

I laughed and said "Good one"

They weren't joking

They looked at me with disgust!
Whos bad

When viewed from the refinement of my Gold Seat, the Descamisado corralled in their Shed present the face and reality of Bedlam, from which we refined gentlefolk and in particular, our ladies, are mercifully preserved.

This may sound like I'm sitting on the fence (as opposed to "BAZ Heights" where I really sit) but I used to stand in the shed and would love to do so again. Unfortunately after several years playing hooker, followed by several years Tug of War (as in AAA standard, not pub) both of which I was considerably undersized for, my back and knees are crocked.

There is no way I can realistically stand for an hour and a half before the game to ensure a position with an easy escape route to relieve my aged bladder and cope with another two hours of standing during the game and realistically expect to be able to walk back to the station to journey back to the Isle of Wight. It ain't gonna happen.

In defense of those around me in the gold lame padded seats, some of us are much noisier than some in the shed would have you believe, and in the past 4 years I have only been told off once - for getting a bit over-excited and standing!!

Used to know a lad who had 'L-O-V-E' tattooed on his right fingers and 'H-E-A-T' on his left. I didn't have the nerve to tell him.


Perhaps he really liked holidays abroad
