Call me old fashioned, but I always make a point of watching the Boat Race. My Dad sort of insisted on it, and I’ve just carried it on.
Now I can’t help it if neither Oxford nor Cambridge thought I was good enough to attend their fine Universities, but The University of Liverpool did, so to them I’m very grateful. Snag is, they’re not in the boat race. So who to support? I always regarded Oxford as the Arts and Cambridge as Science, hell Stephen Hawking works at Cambridge! Since I’m very much on the side of science and engineering it’s always been the Dark Blues for me in the race!
I’ve spent time in both Oxford and Cambridge (although sadly not the Universities), both are *fabulous* places, but it’s Cambridge I’ll always have a soft spot for. Maybe in my next life I’ll get there….
