Yup you did Dana, sweaty face pressed up against the window of a Northern Line train in the rush hour as it whistles through Mornington Crescent and some of those crushed in alongside think '...oh thats that place ...'

Oh again!! Just as I typed that someone on the radio announced Richard Griffiths death, the wonderful teacher on the moped in The History Boys and all the other great parts. Oh.

Well I believe we might have time for one more round, so I'll start us off with Tooting Broadway. Open season, all established variations may be played except the Chumley-Warner.

Is this aimed at me? I'm upset that you would go there. I'm going to have to sit this round out if you are excluding Chumley.

yes, well, you should never have attempted the Wimbledon reverse maneuver when poor old CF was trying to change lines carrying his bike -not cricket at all.

Good times.

I miss Herbie and Yukon Cornelius.

Next time we're up that way, I'll be sure to drop a North poke Station in.

For now, though, Chalk Bottom will have to do.

In that case...

Hampton Court. (Which is not as painful as it sounds).

I thought you had me for a moment there, but after a cuppa I realized..... I could "just say no" with Grange Hill!

I didn't see that one coming. You play a mean game ma'am.

I was saving this for later, but needs must...

Baker Street. (Circle Line - Westbound, that is).

I'm not sure "Westbound" is legal, it's certainly not moral; but I'm not going to argue it, because it makes this counter move possible: London Bridge.

In that case Arnos Grove is wild so I play...

Shadwell.

Well, it's only fair. How else could I follow London Bridge without the possibility of getting into Nidd?
