Did anyone else watch the final last night?

If so did you see the startling similarity between one of the contestants (Bubb) and our rock n roll hero Niall O'Flaherty.

The Clothes (most specifically the jacket), the hair, the bad teeth (sorry thats not true) and a magnificant sense of self importance.

I'm wondering if this Bubb character is either a closet Sultans fan or did Niall ever do a lecture at Christ Church College Oxford and this chap feel in love with him and copied his hair and clothing style down to a tee.

You get a good look at the start and especially at the end of the show when he stands up to collect the trophy with the rest of the team. If he is not a Sultans fan it is really a bizzarre choice of uniform for such a reverential show as the final of University Challenge!!!

I see what you mean - he might be trying to look like him. But it's a bit misguided. He's not working it very well. He'd do better to buy himself a jerkin, merkin and water spritzer and follow in your footsteps.

The Kaufman chap has one of those generic faces and could be a lookalike to a huge number of people.

I used to go to school with a bloke like that and even now when I see people on the telly think christ he looks like .........

I wanted Sheffield to win as well, just for the fact that the other lot were spoilt rich kids. For instance the lass Darby had a look on her face all the time like she had stood in shit, till she answered a question right and celebrated with a Tiger Tim-esque air punch. I'm not a violent person (unless Kelly is in the vicinity) but I could have happily strangled her!!

And for the record I may wear Jerkins, but I have never had an occasion to place a merkin on my personal area. These pubic wigs only came to my attention when Onenight told me he had started to wear one to combat the alopecia he suffers from on his pubic regions. Shocked
