My post about Patrick Gibson reminded me of another Irish genius who, sadly, is currently critcially ill in a London hospital.

A bell-boy was summoned to George Best’s luxurious hotel room. He stared in amazement at the scene that greeted him. Empty, discarded bottles of champagne everywhere, a scantily clad Mary Stavin (Miss World) lying on the bed surrounded by ten pound notes.

‘Tell me, Mr Best, just where did it all go wrong ?’
