Not commenting on the tennis, but Mardy Fish?

I'm not sure if you'd use the word 'mardy' - I know son had to explain what it meant to his girlfriend who's from 'down south' ;-) - as I think it's local to up here, but I now can't shift the image of a sulky, tantrum-ridden fish playing tennis...

Yes, I've heard that meaning for the word mardy, and I actually use it myself from time to time.

It really is a class name - I love it!!

I didn't realise it was that widespread! :-)

It is. It doesn't really sound like a name at all.

I have a feeling I picked it up from an old penfriend who lived in Carlton, actually!

It may be my favourite sporting name, you know.

Carlton's really near me! Only just over the hill... :-)

I can't think of a better one.

I stayed there a couple of times - I only have vague memories of it though.

Fuzzy Zoeller is another good one

'Hilly' about sums it up. It's just another suburb really.

Was he a golfer? I know I remember the name... always made me think of the Muppets.

I've always enjoyed Nottingham when I've been up!

He was indeed - and I think that's why I like his name, too!

Glad to hear it! :-) If you're ever up this way again, we'll have to meet up.

We will, definitely! I'm hoping to get to Trent Bridge at some point next year as I've never been, so I shall keep you posted!

That'd be really cool! :-)

Anyway, early night for me... I'm knackered. :-(

It would!

Night night!! Hope you sleep well!
