Well, actually it's extremely tenuous, but it tickled me. And it's probably the nearest either of our lads will get to having a pub named after them...

Anyone who's familiar with the Wetherspoons chain of pubs will know that they usually name their establishments after local dignitaries or places. The Wetherspoons pub in Morpeth, Northumberland, is housed in an old cinema where in the early days live acts would perform on stage between films. One of the most popular acts was the self-styled "Dr" Walford Bodie, aka 'The Electrical Wizard', and that's who the pub is named after.

No connection to 'our' Bodie, of course, but I did feel quite chuffed to sit there drinking my pint of Guinness whilst perusing all the Bodie photos etc. I'm easily pleased, I know... *g*
