Diabetic gets honorary degree

By | 23 June, 2011

Sir Steve Redgrave – most famous for promising to give interviews to small – but well-formed – diabetes-related websites and then ignoring any follow up emails from hard-working and dedicated website owners – has been given an honorary degree from St Andrews university. You can read all about it here http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/news/archive/2011/Title,70299,en.html if you’re interested in diabetic sportsmen getting honorary law degrees (rather than having to work hard for three years to get a law degree, like both dedicated owners of this website!)

My spy at St Andrews’ events department tells me he was “a nice chap” but still the taint of not-replying-to-our-emails sticks. Bah!

    Double-bitterness in the reporting by the dog. Outstanding 🙂

    That’s made me chuckle.

    Well that’s it I’m off to get mine!! Actually will be easier to order one off the interweb!

    Redgrave, I believe his lives up to his nickname as Dr Juice.. Shame really as he really could get us pancreatically challenged bunch in the spotlight.

    Also, after reading the article, like a good little lad.. I noticed it was a law degree on offer!!

    Why Law??

    Why not something more sport/health/lifestyle related? Could he now perhaps moonlight as a rower lawyer?

    I don’t know? I didn’t even know that St Andrews’ did a law course…

    In my mother tongue, “rower” means thief/robber, so perhaps a law degree might buff up his image to something more lawful?

    You better not start any rows
    With this chap for words that he owes:
    He’ll bloody his oar
    On your sticky gore…
    And use as a rudder your nose.
