Forget all that minor league stuff. Instead, join us for the REALLY big football event of 2010: 'Socrates Wanderers' versus 'Nietzsche Albion,' Wingate & Finchley’s Harry
Abrahams stadium, North London, Sunday 9th May!

Inspired by the famous 1972 Monty Python sketch - and with the full backing of the surviving Pythons - a tribute/ replay of ‘The Philosophers' Football Match’ comedy sketch between teams of 'Greeks' and 'Germans' is being held in May as a real football game. Who needs Rooney and Ronaldo when you have Plato and Kant on the park? See you for kick-off – bring your Descartes and team scarf! Tickets are now on sale.

and...

Python football auction

Bid on a piece of classic comedy and footballing history…

We are delighted to announce we will be hosting a special eBay auction for a special Match Memorial Football signed by all the surviving members of the Monty Python team (John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam).

The proceeds will be used for increasing awareness of the 'Four Rs' campaign and for providing educational services or promoting Philosophy in the community.

Bidding on this 'Holy Grail' of Football and Comedy will be a lot of fun, benefit a great cause, and you will of course end up with a unique collectors' item at the end of it.

Watch this space for details of the eBay auction.

Lemming_Of_The_BDA: That is one lucky ball.

thewastelandr: Second to last is John Cleese, so I'm assuming the one under is Terry Gilliam?

sit-on-my-face: O good lord I hate living far from my beloved England, where feet in ancient times...

Lvndr HppE: I'm trying to figure out what the second to last autograph is.

Eric Idle
John Cleese
Terry Gilliam

Gilliam must be the one I can't read. I get the one that says "Michael Palin", "Terry Jones", "Eric Idle" and "John Cleese". I'm having trouble making out that the Gillam one says "Terry Gilliam". Ah, well. Nice pictures, anyway.

which one is Terry Jones?

Lvndr HppE at 7:43 pm May 02

Well, I'm guessing that the Terry Jones one is the one that plainly reads "Terry Jones"
