In each Birling Day episode they refer to the "Six Nations final", but it doesn't actually have one; everyone plays everyone and the winner is decided on points. Presumably he goes to wherever Wales are playing their final match.

Example of Gretzky Has the Ball, or am I just being pedantic?

It is. Finnemore has admitted as much.

Actually, listening to one of the later ones recently (Timbuktu?), it refers to the final of the Rugby World Cup. And I think Paris carefully avoids mentioning the specific fixture. I guess he retconned it after the no-doubt massive wave of helpful complaints after Edinburgh.

How would you categorise this?

In 'Fitton', written two years before Sherlock was broadcast, they're playing a game of "films that sound better with the last letter knocked off". Martin goes for "The Hound of the Baskerville", for which he is roundly mocked. Two years later, not only does Sherlock have a continuing theme of naming episodes with slight variations of the stories' original titles, but that particular story is renamed "The Hounds of Baskerville".

Hilarious in Hindsight? Art Imitates Art? I was initially assuming it was a Take That!, but it pre-dates the TV show.

I think I'd put it under Hilarious in Hindsight.
