*Tube Challengers on TV klaxon*

Post by snudge27 » 11 Jul 2016, 08:21

Only Connect tonight on BBC 2 (20:30).

The 'Tubers' (including Jack Welsby) take on the 'Bardophiles'.

Slightly niche quizzing, but well worth a look.

If he held the record I think he counts as a "tuber", to be fair.

But it's Tube Challengers, suggesting more than one tube obsessive.

Just because people don't exist on here doesn't mean they're not Tube Challengers...

Usually the teams on Only Connect tend to be something that they came up with to satisfy the "must have team name and linked interests" bit on the form.

'Bardophiles' suggests they're all fans of Shakespeare in one capacity or another.
