The Tom Walker Show
Talked about the ‘Top 5 Sportspeople/stars You’ve Probably Forgotten About’…
Started the show with a rant about the nation’s gutter press, in relation to the News of the World story (how low can they get?) and generally whined about Murdoch the puppet master.
I shared some of the wisdom of my former fellow Thursday night presenter and Mr Phoenx, Eddie Curry, who wrote on twitter in relation to buying the last copy of this rag…’Not buying #NOTW today. If people want “a piece of British history” they should do what I’m doing today and go and visit a castle.’
…Bodium in East Sussex is my favourite castle if you asking – probably do a ‘Top 5 castles’ sometime in the near future.
Anyway here’s my top 5 much loved and most forgotten sporting stars:
1. Va’aiga (‘Inga the Winger’) Tuigamala – Rugby League/Union Sensation, pop this in your google -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccJlv32kCfw
2. Yannick Noah (wish I had put someone better in*, ie Ridley Jacobs) – flamboyant French Tennis Player
3. West Ham’s Mr Reliable – Steve Potts
4. The Maltese Snooker Sensation – Tony Drago
5. Liverpool’s Irish Centre Half – Phil (ke)Babb
Highly recommended to Nordin Wooter, Ulf Kirsten, Roger Black, Thomas Castaignède, Stan Collymore, the whole Aston Villa 1994 & 1996 League Cup winning teams, Ridley Jacobs, Gus Fraser, Goolagong Cawley, Gunnell, Jockey Wilson and David Campese.
Played some classics including the Mavericks which I danced the night away to last night – longer than I should have.
