A couple of points:

1. Football is the most popular sport in the world. You don't need to make up sports that end up  120- 110 to be able to enjoy it (a nil-nil draw can be just as exciting as a 4-3).

2. Aston Martin was owned by ford, but is now owned a British consortium including Dave Richards of Prodrive (British motor sport company)

3. Mr Bean drove an Austin Mini  ;D

1/ agreed : but trashing the old enemy in the local derby 9-0 is better still... (one day, one day... it will happen)

2/ Correction on the AM : as reported in Nov-2012 :

'The company was sold in 2007 by Ford for £479m to a consortium of Investment Dar and another Kuwaiti investment fund, Adeem Investment.

The consortium was fronted by Dave Richards, former Formula One Benetton and BAR boss, who remains as chairman of Aston Martin'

3/ There was a Reliant van that showed up a lot in the TV series, but it wasnt his.

Well yeah, because even a 4-3 soccer game is probably boring.  :P

Whereas the nil-nil draw in hockey between Australia & Netherlands at the recent champion's trophy was one of the most exciting games I've seen for ages.

Quote3. Mr Bean drove an Austin Mini  ;D

So he did. I was remembering the episode where he's trying to get out of a carpark, which ends with a robin falling over, and getting confused.

Robin Reliants often got confused and fell over, anything resembling a corner had that effect on them...  fortunately, being so light they were easily and quickly put back right-side up again... thereby hangs a tale involving my ex-wife, a confused Reliant, some drunken bikers, a crazed Old English Sheep Dog and the local constabulary... but the memory is too raw still, many decades later...
