I remember it vividly as 27th August 2005, as Iíd got married in the morning. Canít remember why I sat in the North Stand though.  Same weekend as the Trent Bridge test in the epic Ashes series too.

I don't think I've ever been more impressed by anything.

A wise old head on young shoulders once told me to get married around a memorable sporting event, for it would make remembering anniversaries etc so much the easier.  Some might think the Ashes building to a crescendo would be enough: watching Swindon v Yeovil that day trumps it for me though.

I don't think it was remotely planned, but my brother got married on the day we thumped Germany 5-1 in 2001 so that day was quite memorable.

Our boy was born by cesarean. We were given a range of days for him to be born on.

One of them was Mayday. I chose that day so he'd have a day off on his birthday, and because it will be easy for me to remember.

I still forget. In my defence, it's fuckwittery rather than bad parenting - I've even been known to forget my own birthday.

I got married on the day of the reinstate Macari game v Sarfend.  Looking in advance it was near the end of a season going nowhere much, (pre PO's) so didn't seem to matter much.... turned out to be a historic occasion, backing up the advice you were given.

More difficult but worth having a similar thing for the missus' birthday.... you can still be required to know such information even if divorced for pension claims and other legal stuff.

Am I being dumb here (entirely possibly) but his birthday (may day) will change day throughout his life, so unless he was going to work straight out the womb I am not sure what this achieved?

You're thinking of the early May bank holiday

May day is a public holiday. In Thailand, that falls on the 1st May. As it does in most other places.

Every year, his birthday (1st May) will be on a public holiday. Ergo, he has a day off on his birthday.

Ah so bank holidays don't wander about like they do in the UK, makes sense now.

Lou sat about 4 rows behind me for that game, he came in about 4 minutes after kick off and the game just about stopped when he did, everyone applauded him.

I chose 30th September 2000 - the year helps  as well as the date being the last day in a month - we played Wigan at home that day, so did miss the game but had score updates.

I am winning 19-18 in the remembering stakes right now.

May Day is a fantastic day to be born on as well Flash, even in the UK I got a holiday near by my birthday every year - not anymore though, USA doesn't bother with it.

My Geburtstag is Boxing Day or St Stephen's Day. Pretty difficult one to forget even if the excuse is because it's Christmas.

I'm quite happy that I've never spent Boxing Day pointlessly wandering around a sofa or carpet shop or eagerly looking for discounted shoes  No

Still have never (due to geography) never seen Town play on my Birthday. Have also yet to marry, if ever.

Swindon lost to Oxford on my wedding day.

Which was obviously booked long before the fixtures came out & quite honestly I didnít really give a fuck about STFC at the time.

I more so remember my Wedding anniversary because we flew to the Maldives the following day which was September the 11th, not the September the 11th obviously...
