Saint of the Day: Saint Peter of Alcantara must have been hard work to live with. The patron saint of Brazil and nightwatchmen would sleep for only an hour and a half every night, in a cell that was too small to lie down in, with his head rested against a spike. He also kept his fellow monks awake with his howling caused by spiritual ecstasies.
Nicholas Ralph's Numbers - Game 14: Pounds in a stone, and days in a fortnight. Sounds like something the FA would dream up.
Lucky animal: The roe deer.
Unlucky food: Japanese wasabi-coated roasted peas. They're great, particularly the way that if you eat enough of them at once, then a great rush of horseradish makes the back of your head go all fuzzy until you re-boot it with a couple of hefty smacks with the palm of your hand...but not today, tiger.
