WHEN ALAN PARTRIDGE WENT TO WRESTLEMANIA

Apropos of nothing, I thought I'd write a post about this today. I don't really have a reason, beyond it being my favourite thing ever and relevant to our interests no matter the time or place.

So without further ado, who remembers that time some guy held a placard at Wrestlemania XXVII that read 'Youth Hosteling With Chris Eubank', in reference to a fairly obscure Alan Partridge quote?!?!

Here's a little background info: There isn't any. Someone purchased tickets to Wrestlemania in 2011 and wrote 'Youth Hosteling with Chris Eubank on a bit of card. The same YHCE that Alan pitched to BBC commissioning editor Tony Hayers during their disastrous meeting when he wasn't offered a second series.

Alan Partridge as close to Wrestlemania as he'll ever get. It's brilliant. It's absolutely nothing if not brilliant. I smile every time I see it and wish it could be explained to the uninitiated in a less convoluted, fan-boy manner.
