Well I am going to set the ball rolling.

I'm going to go for the person I feel needs feedng up the most, as I think they have starved themselves ready

in preperation for this event, so for that reason I am going to choose

I know perhaps I shouldn't go for the most obvious one but all my money is going on Ian C!

Ultimately though, this will probably save on the food for the rest of the chase as I shouldn't think they will want to eat again after this! :help:

After seeing the size of the damn thing last year all I can say is 'Bl**dy good luck to you and bl**by well go for it, show them what the British are made of.' (Just not literally)..............

I don't doubt there will be plenty of support from the rest of the team and plenty of ale will flow. :):)

Good Luck!

Stewart

Like Mammatus i'm not out until the 20th (I'm No. 9 by the way) and I barely got through a 12 oz Sirloin the other day, so 72 would be pushing it somewhat, as would the aftermath!! :)

Think I'll go with the Shermanator as well

Let's just hope no-one offers them a wafer thin mint at the end of the meal.

It's a difficult decision because, judging from the photograhic evidence supplied so far, they almost all look more than man enough... but I'm going to be loyal and opt for my little Baldrick - Paul Michaelwaite.

Well knowing that Michael Fish is a bitter drinker and bitter is quite a bulky drink I will have to bet on him :)
