Senility

"He's 38 years old, but the intelligence is still there..." a football commentator observed about Ryan Giggs tonight. Miraculous, isn't it? Anyway, despite my advanced age, I'm jetting off to Munich tomorrow for a fun impromptu memory championship with my fellow Bavarian boycotters. I do still wish I was at the world championship, but there's always next year (hopefully).

I should have asked Bayern Munich to give me a lift, actually - they're in Manchester tonight. But they'd probably have asked me why we call them Bayern Munich, and not Bayern M√ľnchen or Bavaria Munich, and I wouldn't have a good answer.

Do you happen to know who the oldest person to attain Grandmaster of Memory is?

I never keep track of who's a grandmaster, so I don't know for sure. But I think the answer might be Dr Yip, in his late fifties.

I'm probably forgetting someone really obvious, though...

Thanks. Good luck in Munich.
