Neville, Grays Point, Australia,




A few years back Cliff Watson was a customer of mine. Used to come in and drink Gin and Tonic. Pretty quiet bloke really. However one day I had been watching a replay of the infamous test match in Brisbane, where Cliff had landed the Liverpool Kiss in Jimmy Morgan face. That night big Cliff came in and he order his drink and whilst preparing it mentioned to him that I had seen his melon on TV that day and said'Poor old Jimmy Morgan.'

With that a complete change came over him and you could see the anger rising an at incredible rate to a point where I though he was going to jump the bar and belt me. He stood and glared at me for at least a minute without saying a word. Even at his age it was still pretty scary, as he is a huge man. He took his drink, slammed his money on the bar and walked away.

Even the guy working with me that night commented after he had left that he thought Watson was going to belt me. He was pretty concerned as well. It really hit a raw nerve with him although I wasn't trying to offend him in any way.
