'If It's Football, It's Vital'

And now for something completely different...

This isn't the pub team or Sunday league side facing a crucial fixture: it`s a match pitching some of the greatest intellects against each other, a match that will try to answer the really big questions… perhaps some of the biggest of all: Was Socrates' goal off that diving header from Archimedes really offside, as Karl Marx claimed - and was Confucius out of order to give Nietzsche that red card for arguing 'he had no free will'?

Inspired by the famous 1972 Monty Python sketch, and with the full backing of the surviving Pythons, a tribute/replay between 'Greeks' and 'Germans' in London is being held this year.

By supporting this tongue-in-cheek re-staging of the original sketch, you will be supporting the 'Four Rs' campaign in aid of the theme of 'More reasoning and creative thinking for our children'.

Comedians Mark Steel, Tony Hawks, Arthur Smith and Ariane Sherine, as well as assorted footballers, sorry, philosophers! AC Grayling, Julian Baggini, Nigel Warburton, Simon Glendinning, Angie Hobbs, Dr Stephen Law and Mark Vernon are already warming up on the touchlines to take part, as are other academics from London and Oxford. Other confirmed supporters include so far sociologist and Radio 4 'Thinking Allowed` presenter Laurie Taylor, the BBC`s John Humphrys, footballing legend Gary Lineker, educationalist and author Anthony Seldon.

The Match is scheduled to take place on Sunday, 9th May 2010 at Wingate & Finchley`s Harry Abrahams Stadium in North London for what is set to be a fantastic day of sporting and Monty Python-influenced comedy action.
