As I understand it, you get an Oxford or Cambridge blue for the major/traditional sports like rowing, rugby union, cricket etc, and a half blue for minor/newer ones. Jezybee will have to tell you himself what he got his for.

I got a half blue for completing just over half of the King's Street Run (10 pints in 10 pubs in one evening, one forfeit pint for every pee). I made it to 6 + 1 forfeit. Long live Adnams!

For some reason I have always supported Oxford in the Boat Race. I don't know why, as I didn't go there and have no connection to the place.

Never been the same since the old days of Peter Dimmock commenting for the wireless...

"... and after a most thrilling race, when both teams managed to avoid capsizing, Princess Anne will now present the Cup to the President of the victorious Boat Club and oh look, now she's gone to kiss the cox of the winning crew"
