Normally can't wait for the Olympics but just can't get excited about it this year.
No crowds and middle of the night UK times not helping.
I clocked a dodgy tattoo on the forner South African and Slovakian silver medalists inner bicep. I now see I’m not alone. His wife claiming it’s a harmless token about love and peace or some other bull. It’s equivalent of a German sporting a swatzika. Pull the other one.
I’m not sure if there’s ever been an F1 thread on here before so I thought I’d start one.
Its the Austrian GP this week. A track that tends to favour cars with less power and a decent chassis. I’m a huge fan of Max Verstappen and I think he’ll win for a second race in a row. Mercedes will always...
Great day of rugby today for those who enjoy their sportsmen to just get on with playing and not pretending to be injured😀 Just watched NZ cuff France, now Australia v Ireland, England v SA later, Scotland in Canada in the wee small hours. Alloa Rugby Club ball tonight as well. Will most likely...
To avoid hijacking a thread in the dug out:
Predictions for Hiac?
The club, new day, reigns (unfortunately) banks (unfortunately) and owens (due to either jericho or Hhh)
See a few different threads at times about boxing so thought we could maybe have one mega thread?current fights future fights? Any gossip,favourite ever fight/fighters?
I see degale has got his unification match against badou jack should be a good fight fancy degale to win then,dunno where that...
No American Triple Crown winner this year then.
Good return to the track by Caravaggio at Naas. I still think he'll stay a mile but O'Brien's keeping him at sprint distances just now. Fav for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.
Peter Wright is virtually unplayable here, what a performance.
whos looking forward to the season on both accounts then?? What are peoples tips on Play-off contenders and overall winners? Is?
I feel i dont know the teams very well but i will be biased go for The Packers making the superbowl
dont know about the NCAA though :hmmm:
Anyone into this?
I went to see the Knicks play in New York a few years ago (tourist alert!) and I’d keep an eye in their results now and again.
I noticed that the season has started back. Does anyone else watch it or have a team they support?
Sorry if already posted, but this deserves a thread, or possibly a whole forum, to itself:
First round in 4 months yesterday as Englandshire finally got its act together.
Pleased to report a net 69 / 39 points and a win for me in the first Wednesday Sweepie :cb Top golfer in a field of over 100
Body broken with Deep Heat, Deep Freeze and co-codamol needed this morning!
The sport you have played the most?
For me probably cricket.
Not a great start to the new year for Uphall Golf Club.
Who are we going for? I’ve put each ways on Rahm Thomas & MacIntyre..paddypower give 1/6 odds for top 12 finish
i’d also consider westwood & min woo lee but can’t afford more gambles 😉
It gets underway tomorrow.
What's people's thoughts? Who's going to challenge the Ineos "Grenadiers"?
I have a wee sneaky feeling about Carapaz. I know he's supposed to be there to support Bernal, but it wouldn't be out of character for Sky/Ineos to change horses mid-race.
My favourite two weeks of the year is almost here and after last year's tournament was cancelled due to the pandemic I'm looking forward to it more than ever.
The draw was made today and Andy Murray, who has received a wildcard, plays 24th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili in round one.
Only three months to go until the 2021 Ryder Cup starts on the 24th September. As in previous years, it's going to be very interesting to see who makes the team.
As of 23rd June, the latest standings are:
European Points List
1. Jon Rahm – 8,516
2. Tommy Fleetwood – 4,999
Can't see a thread for this. Nadal v Djokovic an absolute war of attrition. Not to mention the contest of who can bounce the ball the most times before serving .. Djokovic at 17 times, ridiculous.
Murray beats Benoit Paire 6-3 6-2 in his 1st round match at queen's . Hopefully the long lay off works in his favour and he can have a decent crack at this and Wimbledon. Good start
Another very tough one when trying to predict the winner. My main pre tournament bet is going on Tyrell Hatton with two other smaller punts on Jason Kokrak and Tony Finau.
Just a few hours until India and South Africa set off on a three-Test series that should have an impact for both sides, depending on the outcome.
Changes for India, with Bumrah unfortunately injured, although they have a couple of more than decent pace men to complement Ashwin and Radeja with...
NZ 378 all out
England collapsing again - 140-6.
Gerwyn Price replaced by James Wade after testing positive for Covid.
Anyone follow it or have a team to follow?
Detroit Tigers for me, family connection.
Go and do it tonight. Little or no coverage of this especially on Sky. Josh should have checked his dates though.
well done Scotland :saltireflag
Scotland win World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship 2021 - World Curling Federation
Scotland win World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship 2021
Anyone else enjoy Aussie rules; perhaps some Hibees who now live out there? I'm not into American sports, such as NFL and baseball, but I've really gotten into Aussie rules in the past couple of seasons and have adopted St Kilda (perennial underachievers with one title in their history) as my team...
Great performance in the PGA. Always liked him as a golfer.
Been following this league all season, and even though bit deflated after yesterday, here's hoping for a Lille win.
First round of qualifying kicks off today - Hendry v White. I know neither have a chance but still interesting to see these guys slug it out.
Live on Eurosport at 7.30pm
Great winning performance from Anderson v Michael Smith, 108 average.
Anyone see it today? Vinales jumping off his bike at 140mph as his brakes failed 😲
Great restart race of 12 laps won on the last corner in a 3 bike contest. Brilliant stuff.
Me and a few of my mates are going to book tickets for Cheltenham next year. For those who’ve been before just looking for any tips or suggestions. What’s it like, dress code, anything worthwhile really.
We’re planning on staying in Birmingham and getting to and from it each day....
Cheltenham Races starts today and gives us a welcome four day distraction from the daily Lockdown drudgery
I thought it would be a good idea to start the annual thread with any tips and recommendations ( reasoning and logic welcome ) over the next four days
I know absolutely hee haw about...
Just beaten Robin Haase in 3 sets in Rotterdam . I didn`t see first set which he lost 2 - 6 but in terms of movement and attitude he looked much better than the last time I saw him in Roland Garros . Played 5 matches in Challenger in Italy , 1 in Montpellier last week and now at least 2 this week...
Anderson loses 10-9 to Dirk Van Duijvenbode.
I’m watching this on tv the now. They’re interviewing athletes in masks right after the race, they’re struggling to breathe ffs. Can they not leave it 5 minutes.
Anyone else been watching the snooker? The QF Higgins v Ronnie just now is a frightening standard. Shaping up to be a classic. C’mon John!
Sad day :no way:
