This week it’s Charlie McCann.Charlie McCann has worked for BetVictor since 2011, previously as the Director of Online Public Relations, before becoming Head of Communications in May 2015. An expert in the sports betting industry, he has also worked for both Stan James and 32Red.____________________________________Best HolidayJust back from a week in Marbella. The weather was gorgeous, but I couldn’t really recommend the venue given I spent most of the time in bed. No surprise really given I had a third left knee inserted; a hospital isn’t the best place for a summer break! If you are fortunate to have children, Disneyland is the best place in the world.Best AlbumGrowing up, Free Live was my favourite, but now what I constantly play is Cradle to the Grave by Charlton fan Glenn Tilbrook and Squeeze.Best FilmBoring, I know. But the Godfather trilogy, and Godfather 2 in particular, is the best film and best acting I will ever see.Best Sporting ExperienceCatching Imran Khan as a youth when 12th man for Lancashire vs Sussex at Old Trafford in the County Championship. I was also fortunate enough to score 72 points in a local basketball match on Merseyside which may still be a record.Best BookHaving recently watched the Republican acceptance speech of Donald Trump in Cleveland, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the fantastic book, ‘Being There’, by Jerzy Kosinski. It was later played magnificently on screen by Peter Sellers.Best BetThe two bets that I remember most vividly were both losers; I’d backed Hawk Wing for the Guineas since he won the National Stakes at the Curragh as a 2-y-old. How he was beaten in the colts’ classic by stablemate Rock Of Gibraltar, I will never know. I also backed Mr Snugfit to win the 1985 Grand National. The horse was caught close home by a 50/1 outsider (Last Suspect) whose trainer (Capt Tim Forster) gave the instructions “keep remounting” to his jockey such was his confidence. Note, had the race been run now Mr Snugfit would have won as the great race is now 90 yards shorter.last_img read more
