If you had to throw a knife at your wife in the circus, you'd want to throw it like that.
Jocky Wilson - all the psychology of a claymore.
Keith Deller is not just an underdog - he’s an under puppy.
Taylor is so hot he could hit the bullseye standing one-legged in a hammock.
Steve Beaton. He’s not A-donis, he’s THE Donis.
Bristow with that little finger poised - fit to grace any garden party.
Circus Tavern packed - even a garter snake smothered in Vaseline couldn’t slide in here.
When Alexander of Macedonia was 33 he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer - Bristow is only 27!
Bristow’s effect on the audience like Rasputin used to have on the birds a long time ago.
It might have been a bit boisterous here earlier, but now it’s got all the courtesy of a Bourbon court on dance night.
The players are under so much duress, it’s like Duressic Park out there.
