In the past couple of weeks I've really begun to enjoy some podcasts from various websites (thanks to my Father-in-law for passing on a complimentary .mp3 player he received). This morning I was listening to some of the Palace Radio podcasts while waiting for my train.
The two clips I had downloaded were from the night of the recent rematch of the two 1990 F.A. Cup Final sides in aid of Leukaemia Research. Of course former Palace captain Geoff Thomas has recently overcome the disease, and it was his idea to stage the game to raise funds. Pretty good idea too, I wish I could have been there.
One of the clips I had downloaded was with Geoff himself. The beginning of the interview might be a one of the strangest introductions I've ever heard. What happened to the cancer survivor and captain of arguably the greatest ever Palace side? Yep, he had the sprinklers turned on him! Only at Palace.
