British TV Redux: Ripping Yarns

This past weekend, the NY Mets got shattered by the NY Yankees 15-0. A Mets fan friend of mine decided to take out his frustration by watching an episode of Ripping Yarns, a BBC comedy series written by Monty Python's Michael Palin and Terry Jones back in 1976. It was a funny take off of old schoolboy "Boys Life" stories. During my Monty Python obsessed days, I coveted old VHS tapes (yes, tapes!) of this series, and relished every episode. Here's one of my favorites entitled "Golden Gordon" (Part I.) Gordon is a Barnstoneworth United football fan, who takes losing to a whole new level.
