Reply Neil Lance 28 Aug 12 That’s what you get when your news team were all born after 1985 Reply Char 28 Aug 12 It gets worse. One major headline said Neil Young had died. Several people tweeted that they thought Neil Armstrong was the lead singer of Green Day. Others thought he was on How I Met Your Mother. I’ll be back after I kill myself in rage! Reply Slack Mathews 28 Aug 12 Bad week for the Armstrongs. Stretch must be shitting himself Reply Jayess 28 Aug 12 Hi Neil, more correctly thats what you get when your news team are not professional enough to check their facts and probably are more interested in making coment rather than reporting Reply Comments are closed.
