If you cast your mind back to when you were a wee child, be it ten years ago, 20, or even last week if you're the little twig that is Josh Brown, then alongside all those outstanding memories of Curlywurlys being bigger and the sheer thrill of opening football sticker packs, you'll find moments of pure Saturday morning bliss.
