    Sports Mastermind

    Anyone else going in for this?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/entertainment/mastermind/contestant_sport.shtml

    I'm giving it a go, although as I'm not resident in the UK I doubt I'll stand much chance of getting in.

    Specialist subjects:

    1 - FA cup finals in the 1970s
    2 - French riders in the Tour de France since 1990.
    3 - French domestic football 1985 - 2000.

    Not a chance in hell.

    It's very very tempting. I'd not only be able to answer 20 questions in 3 minutes on either Liverpool FC in the 80s, or the Major Golf Championships from 1985 to the present, but I'd probably be able to challenge and correct the bbc researchers' incorrect answers while I was doing it.

    Trouble is I'm crap on horse racing, cricket and ice dancing, which I expect they'll throw a few of in on the "general sports knowledge" round, not to mention my almost vacuum-like knowledge of things like the Boat Race, and even Athletics. Being the beeb, I fear the quiz is going to feature sports they've got coverage of, and most of the bbc's sports coverage I'm not at all interested in.

        The specialist subject round would be key as (nearly) everyone will have the same problems on the second round. If you really could get 20 points in the first round, you wouldn't need to excel in the general knowledge round to win.
