Unfortunately, I missed this week’s University Challenge when it went out as I was out myself, gigging.
I couldn’t not (double negative) cover the show, however; not when Bobby Seagull was one of the contestants. He regularly ribs me on Twitter if don’t tweet anything about it, though this time, he must have been furious as he didn't even bother. So this is for you, Bobby Sea. Please, forgive me; I know not what I (didn’t) do.
