Micky Lewis.

Probably won't mean much to many, but he was a legend at my footy club. Part of the team that won promotion and got us out of the conference.

He was only diagnosed with cancer two weeks ago.

"Unless I am very much mistaken.... I AM very much mistaken!"

"Mansell is slowing down, taking it easy. Oh no he isn't IT'S A LAP RECORD."

"This is an interesting circuit, because it has inclines. And not just up, but down as well."

"The lead car is absolutely unique, except for the one behind it which is identical."

"The most important part of the car is the nut that holds the wheel."

"I know it's an old cliche, but you can cut the atmosphere with a cricket stump."

"Tambay's hopes, which were nil before, are absolutely zero now."

"And there's no damage to the car. Except to the car itself."

"That's the first time he had started from the front row in a Grand Prix, having done so in Canada earlier this year."

"How you can crash into a wall without it being there in the first place is beyond me!"

"Excuse me while I interrupt myself"

"And the first five places are filled by five different cars."

Frank Worthington, England football player, 72, from Alzheimer's. When we were both in our late teens, Frank was playing for the team my parents supported, Huddersfield Town. My friend and i would see him in the disco in Bradford during the week, and I would tell him, "My mum says not to stay out too late, you've got a match on Saturday," and he would laugh and say he'd be ready. He was always so friendly.
