A post was split to a new topic: Who’s for Craft Beer?
Well, I couldn’t resist, another £1.50 I’m giving away then
A miss is as good as a mile.
But it makes you feel better when you are close
I once won 2nd prize in a competition. It was a great prize! A JVC CamCorder back in the days when they cost an arm and both legs.
When I got the phone call in the office to tell me I’d won, the others in the office were all laughing.
Apparently my reaction to 2nd place and about £1,500 of prize in the mid 80’s was one of total disappointment,
I was SO damned close to winning the Rover 3500!!!
I’d have preferred to have totally lost than being so close to a superb prize.
Worse, probably, because the winner was a subjective choice in a caption comp.
It’s cheap entertainment. LOL!
Some of your entries certainly are that
I can’t recall ever winning anything, my brother always used to enter competitions in the South Wales Echo, I remember him winning two big prizes way back, one was a JVC camcorder, it took full size VHS cassettes, we used to have a laugh saying he looked like someone working for a national TV company.
The other was a Mini Metro, both were a big deal and worth a lot of money at the time.
and now 50p
I have been painfully close on a few of these now… I am convinced that the judges don’t watch football, or the players are focusing on something else that is round and isn’t the ball…
