5 Live Hull...

Spent most of today at BBC Radio 5Live events in Hull - Simon Mayo's show which, naturally, included Kermode and Mayo's Film Review then, after a brief interlude for coffee at BBC Radio Humberside's HQ and a meander to the fantastic Ye Olde White Harte for a couple of beers, Colin Murray's 5LiveSports show followed by Murray and Lovejoy's Sports Express. All most enjoyable and a really nice photo opp for Tim Lovejoy, who was desperate to smile and get his arm round an obscure playwright. The only downside of the day was an Annie Hall-style experience in the queue at Vue Cinema for the Mayo gig. A straggle-haired, overweight and slightly smelly film geek who, I deduced, is a reviewer for independent local radio, was proferring his reviews of every instance of moving pictures since the zoopraxiscope was patented in 1867 to everyone else in the queue. He spoke ridiculously loudly that it's a wonder you didn't hear him. He was, to use a choice word, a twat. But I suppose it was to be expected given the event. It was, as I suggest, very much like this:

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. A week ago I had fun with this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Xbox Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Nhl2k game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
