Just around the corner and the Grand National seems like one with real quality in it this year. I canít see it being won by anything outside the top 10 in the betting. Hasnít stopped me having a punt on a couple of longer shots though.
Few Iím on are:
I guess since there's no thread on this, I'm not the only one wondering if this is well past its sell by date?
Who's your tip to win it?
Choose your favourite and a rank outsider, say lower than 40/1 in the rankings.
I'm going for Justin Thomas and Brian Harman
Great win following a really tough Gold Cup run for Might Bite, never really beat much but, an outstanding horse.
Apparently took a heart attack at the darts tonight in Liverpool and was taken to hospital but has passed away.
Is this a real fight then or a hype job to sell tickets and PPV?
Last week was built up to be a genuine fight and turned into an ok boxer smashing Mr Blobby.
To the proper.boxing people in here, what do you think?
I'm aware there's usually a wee bit of interest on this forum around the Six Nations, but are there any actual rugby fans that regularly follow Edinburgh (or Glasgow)?
Heading along to the quarter final tie against Stade Francais at Murrayfield on Friday night, for what should be a better...
Anyone follow it or have a team to follow?
Detroit Tigers for me, family connection.
I would say I'm more of a casual horse racing fan but dont mind the odd day out at the races. Never been on a Scottish course. Am I right in saying there are 5 courses, Kelso, Ayr, Musselburgh, Hamilton and Perth?
Any recommendations as to which offers the best day out, best racing etc etc?
England all out for 58 after only 20.4 overs. Brilliant bowling from Boulton and Southee but an utter shambles of a batting performance.
The ICCís cricket World Cup qualifier started today in Zimbabwe. As a result of shortening the size of the tournament, only 10 teams are in the World Cup. These are made up of the top 8 full members and the top 2 from this tournament.
Scotland this morning have hammered newly anointed full...
Right I appreciate there is a separate ongoing thread for racing but the Fez deserves it own thread as racingís biggest week.
Iíll get us started and I really fancy Native River for the Gold Cup. Might Bite is rightly favourite however I feel this whole campaign has been geared around the GC for...
Big build up, totally outplayed and out thought tactically by Wales, plenty of individual mistakes, BBC Rugby commentators and analysts bigging up certain Scottish players over the last few weeks, they've all been poor. The only one that has an excuse is Laidlaw who's been out for a while, but...
How many times?
Is it that the Cycling bodies just canít sort the rules out to prevent this or is there something else going on.
As a punter looking on I just canít imagine that these multiple time winners are freaks of nature and that some assistance is administered along the way. Too many...
I have to say, all credit to Laura Muir, getting 2 medals in the women's 1500 and 3000 metres at the World Indoor Championships while also doing her placement as a vet, the final part of her degree.
ANyone else think it's going to miss the roided out Russians?? Being in Sweden it's always quite a big event as they generally do well. Looking forward to it think the ioc have bottled it a bit with letting the Russians compete under non country rules.
10 years ago, when I was a 14 year old lad I would play in every golf competition that I could. On a Friday afternoon after school I would have the choice of whether to play the junior medal at Dundas or Linlithgow, and you could guarantee there would be at least 15 playing in each, often much more...
The Joburg is really the only tournament worth having a bet on this week. Notable players taking part are Oosthuizen, Frittelli who won last week and Coetzee. Porteous, Burmester, Wu and Wallace are other candidates to win while there's always the chance a complete unknown can have a brilliant...
Great to see them getting their 5hit together.
What a performance and getting very hard to beat at home. And nice for that side of the city to have something to cheer for a change.
Has lost it's license to stage racing as per a statement from the BHA today. As of now the next fixture on 14th July and all subsequent fixtures can't go ahead.
The BHA have been seeking an independent review into governance of the course for some time and the Musselburgh Joint Racing Committee...
Kobe Bryant has two jerseys retired by the Lakers. Five NBA championship winning legend. Sadly, I only saw him play once in the Staples. 2009 against the Denver Nuggets. Carmelo Anthony was a nightmare but Kobe won out the duel. Trevor Ariza had a great game but left next season. Ron Artest...
Sat up till the very early hours this morning watching this tournament unfold. It was the first time I'd sat and watched this one. It was a mixture of stroke play/knockout/six hole match play until finally Aphibarnrat prevailed. I found the mixture of different type golf play combined into this...
I've never noticed this before. What's it all about?
Apologies if there is a similar thread elsewhere but I could not see one!
Just getting a feel for where people are heading for the Superbowl in Edinburgh next week?
Me and a couple mates are booked into Whistle Stop Barber Shop so hoping for a good night :aok:
Does anyone know if you can buy tickets without being a member of a club or through a registration process i.e counter sale.
Looking for two tickets for Italy game in Rome on 17 March.
What a shot from DJ.
Haven't seen much of it due to time differences but what a tournament Kyle Edmund is having.
Beat 10th seed Kevin Anderson and fully taken advantage of getting his draw, in the quarters now.
Up to 35 in the world as well so with a bit of luck he could find himself seeded for the next couple...
Reading between the lines this has been pencilled in for the summer! Must have an agreement in place
And we are off....
Steve Beaton wins the 1st match of the tournament.
Last minute winner for Edinburgh, superb Edinburgh down to 14 for most of the game
Am I reading this wrong or are UCI saying he's done something wrong?
Europe cruising again but some of the antics are abysmal!
Anyone watching? Who you got? Iíve got Loma knockout in rounds 7-9.
Disappointing result for the Hibees today but what about that from Scotland?! Obviously the red card played a big part but nevertheless putting 50-plus points on any team, never mind Australia, is not to be sniffed at. 5 years ago we'd never have done that. Played with no fear and took chances,...
Anybody staying up to watch this ?
I was goung to post this fight in the boxing thread but I feel it deserves it's own thread. This fight hasn't been getting the hype it should be getting in the mainstream UK press but in the boxing world it's being considered as one of the most skilled match...
Looking for a driver.
Congratulations have to go to Tommy Fleetwood for winning the Race, even though it ended up being by default a bit.
However, my respect for Justin Rose increased significantly after watching him behave after the round.
What a gallant, magnanimous and generous interview too.
Big fight for him tonight. Started well.
It would have been fantastic to have seen a Scottish golfer win the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa on Sunday. I really thought Scott Jamieson was going to go on and win it but it wasn't to be as Branden Grace came from off the pace to pip Jamieson by a single shot.It was a difficult course for a...
Kings games are included with Staples Center premium season tickets so I went to my first hockey match and had a bit of a surprise. This is LA and usually hot so I turned up in a short sleeved shirt like I would for basketball games or concerts but it was bloody freezing - well it is turned into an...
