1pt four-fold featuring Southampton, Chesterfield, Northampton and Aldershot at 15.67 with Victor Chandler
Very sad and shocked to read yesterday that IBAS’ Chief Executive Chris O’Keeffe has died at the age of 56. I spoke to him on numerous occasions for industry news items and he was a top bloke who would do anything he could to be of help. He will be sorely missed without a doubt.
Also sad to read that Pete Postlethwaite has passed away, I didn’t speak to him on numerous occasions but never saw him put in a dud performance, amazing actor.
Anyway, suppose we’d better have a bet in tribute to them both. Low stakes high returns is the way we’re going with Chesterfield likely to have the biggest test of the four selected but at (2.6) I thought it was worth throwing them into the mix. The others should be more comfortable with Southampton in pretty good nick at the moment.
We’re planning on popping out this afternoon to look at gyms. We do this on an annual basis. Basically it revolves around us looking at three or four gyms, settling on the most expensive and attractive option (ie Esporta in our case) attending religiously for two weeks, then just going to the cafe/restaurant there for a further two weeks. Then there will be a period of about a month when we don’t go at all before finally getting a doctor’s note requesting a cancellation of the membership on health grounds.
