The "Route du Rhum" race kicked off from my bit this afternoon. There are 81 competitors sailing single handed the 4,500 miles from St Malo to Guadeloupe. The event takes place every 4 years but this is the first time I've really caught the bug (maybe because the crowd I work for 'built' one...
Just won another title in Valencia & playing a Spanish player & crowd! Possibly the bravest & most skilful performance I've seen from a Scottish sportsman since Kenny Buchanan beat Ismael Laguna in Panama. If I was LD or AS I'd move heaven & earth to get Andy in to talk to the players & even take...
New set up this seaon, that favours England.
I see in the 5 groups, there are seven English, six French teams, with only one from Scotland and Italy, three Irish teams and two Welsh teams.
Yet, by the end of this week it is unlikely that there will be any English team top of any of the five...
Anyone watch it and see those punches?
I think this is a link to it (can't verify it form my work) www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrPBnxacK2Q
Lengthy ban coming his way!
Could tonight be the first time that both players in the same match have scored a nine dart finish? Messrs Wade and Thornton take a bow, fantastic viewing! Double start as well, amazing.
For those of a certain age who followed F1 when this guy drove, he has been sadly killed in a motorbike accident. I don't think he ever won a race but was certainly a regular in F1 for several seasons.
:grr: I flicking hate darts.
Just threw 18 of the blighters and hit scores of 100, 26, 140, 3, 100 and 36 :rolleyes:
Anyway, got tickets for the Masters at Ingliston for November 1st evening session. Anyone else going along?
Really looking forward to this. I think the price on an American win has been a tad too generous. It's starting to shrink a bit from around the 3.00 it was on Betfair, but still 2.80+ available. The last 2 have been very close and I'm expecting the same here.
Two years ago the US were the...
Hope he does well in the ryder cup. His uncle bernard gallacher (and kirsty) are hibs fans. Anyone know if stephen is?
Anyone know the results?
If your interested go down the menu to fantasy survivor, sign in/up and under Private groups search for Hibs.net
You select one team each week but can't choose that team again throughout the season.
I've chose my eagles to beat the Jags at...
Settling down to watch the final round of the Tour Championship - Rory about to go out in the final group again with Ricky just teed off the 1st.
Been like that all season.
Really looking forward to this :greengrin
Anyone staying up for this, and any idea what time we are looking at for it to start at. :aok:
The final Grand Slam of the 2014 tennis season starts in New York tomorrow.
It could be quite an open tournament as well.
Rafael Nadal has pulled out through injury, Andy Murray hasn't won a tournament in almost 14 months and Novak Djokovic has only won two matches since winning Wimbledon...
Anyone been watching this? I've been stuck with the highlights on ITV4 at night for my fix, but its been good viewing so far.
Some great stages so far with Contador, Valverde, Froome and Rodriguez all being relatively close in the GC.
Contador looks really strong and I can't see beyond him. ...
Early days, with only Dubuisson looking a certain qualifier. It will be interesting to see how the team changes during the season. Would also be good to see at least on Scot in the team.
The current 9 in the automatic positions are:
What a performance by the all blacks.....after a tough draw last week they totally pumped the wannabes in NZ.
Many written off as a ageing team, they showed they've got a few younger players more than willing to come in and keep them nos 1..
Ryan grotty....take a bow son !
Reading earlier he is going to have a sex change, which is why he is out of the boxing game, wonder how that will go down in a very macho environment
England win 3-1, Joe Root is such an impressive player, he will become a superstar with the bat.
An each way bet on Graeme McDowell is my limit.if he misses the cut then so be it!!
My mate is opening up a new combat sports equipment store in Montrose Terrace. It's set to open at the beginning of September.
He is going to specialize in equipment & apparel for Boxing, MMA & Muay Thai.
Feel free to ask any questions on this thread if you want to know more...
Anderson 7-3 up v Lewis in their 1/4 final. First to 16 legs.
Usain Bolt dancing to the Proclaimers before the 4 x 100m final was brilliant. Obviously must be a Hibs supporter. Wonder if he's bought his ST yet?
Only had one bet today, what a performance by Taghrooda, could be named the winner about three furlongs out. Well done to the Hills family! :agree:
Should be plenty more Group 1s where that came from.
Fury has now pulled out against his new opponent due to his Uncle being seriously ill.
With the Commonwealth Games coming to Glasgow, it reminded me of a rumour I heard that Sir Hoy is of the Yammish persuasion, is this true? Still a great representative for Scotland either way of course.
rounded off with a truly embarrassing Ronnie Corbett. you truly ARE a Twat son.
give it up.
The third major tournament of the year is upon us and a very talented field is set to take on the challenge of Hoylake near Liverpool.
As ever, golf betting is notoriously difficult with so many fancied golfers in the field.
My hot tips for this year are:-
Paul Casey (65/1) He's gradually...
Any cycling fans / cyclists on .net? I was a bit sceptical of the tour starting in Yorkshire this year but have to say the two opening stages have really delivered.
Getting in first this time! :greengrin
The draw is made tomorrow for this year's Wimbledon and Andy Murray comes into the tournament as the defending champion.
The only other time he's started a Grand Slam as the defending champion was the US Open last year where he lost to Stanislas Wawrinka...
Did anyone else watch last night's fight? I'm by no means an expert on the intricacies of the methods that judges use to award points for each round but from what I saw last night there's absolutely no way the verdict should have ended up as a split decision.
Burns was totally outclassed from...
The main warm up event for Wimbledon started today and although Andy Murray doesn't start until Wednesday thanks to his bye through to the second round, there was some British interest today.
Dan Evans and James Ward both got through to round two with Evans in particular having a very impressive...
Just wondering if anyone goes along to watch the wolves?
planning on going to my first game today, not expecting much but need some Football to keep me going till the season starts.
Wembley I see.
Could get close to 100,000 folk?
Sorry Trig, beat you to it this year but since the name change .............
Not a bad draw for Murray up to the quarters then it changes completely. Wawrinka, Federer, Nadal follow if seeds go to plan.
I've never followed this previously and I'm aware there's been a lot of controversy during the off-season (move to hybrids, rule changes etc) but I'm captivated by F1 this year!
The Bahrain GP today was absolutely sensational - the racing between Rosberg and Hamilton for first place today was...
Just caught the tail end of a 5live show reliving the great West Indies team of 1984 and the black wash of England. Hard to believe that it was 30 years ago!
Watching that series back in that summer on BBC was what gave me the cricketing bug. World class players at their peak and it truly was...
Having been to watch it in the past, sad news: http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-27651504
It is believed two people have been killed in an incident at a motor racing event in the Scottish Borders.
Unconfirmed reports have said a vehicle taking part in the Jim Clark Rally struck spectators,...
Really sad news about the snooker player Ali Carter being diagnosed with lung cancer, less than a year after beating testicular cancer.
Getting cancer once in your lifetime must be a truly awful experience but to get it twice in less than 12 months must be unimaginable.
All the best to him.
Starts on 6th February and surprisingly Gary Anderson has been given a wildcard.
Wade has been dropped \ rested \ taken out the limelight for this one.
