In the news recently, a British TV presenter, conservationist and anti-hunting campaigner Chris Packham had his car torched by thugs who oppose his work. Itís a tragic, horrible story, but Packhamís tweet about it caught my eye:
He describes it as ďmy own private ThermopylaeĒ. This is such a specific phrase that I can only assume itís a (possibly unconscious) Marathon 2 reference, as I donít think the phrase exists outside that context. I guess it could be a coincidence. I donít think Packham plays games (at least, Iíve never heard him reference them).
