This is a question Biggest opportunity I've blown

Not Alan Partridge tells us: "I was once offered the chance to co-present a programme on national radio. Audience of millions, but blew up spectacularly, my entire contribution being the rustling of paper in the background. I was that bad, I have since burned my copy of the pilot show." Tell us about your big break, and how you messed it up.

Missed opportunity to win ££££££££££££££
When I was a student my housemates were the sort of blokes who place bets on things, including the Grand National. I'm the sort of bloke who's never even stepped foot in a bookies. They were trying to convince me to place a bet on the Grand National and I said, "Nah. I reckon it probably won't even happen this year, the IRA will probably phone in a bomb threat or something".

And that's exactly what happened. If I'd placed a bet on the Grand National not going ahead, I could've won a shit-ton of money. But I'd also probably have ended up being interviewed by the police about what exactly I knew.
