We have a public holiday here for the Melbourne Cup today. It's about the only time I bet on the nags. Picked my horses - as did the wife and kids - and put $1 each way on each horse.
Whilst at the betting agency I see Prince of Penzance was in the green and white (and mauve) and thought maybe $10...
Not really an egg chasing fan but will take an interest in what is happening in the World Cup until at least Scotland get knocked out or someone beats Engerland. (Commentators do my head in and I am sick of hearing they won the World Cup once.)
I see our first game is tomorrow afternoon against...
... Dr William Gilbert Grace died. Possibly the first modern sporting superstar, probably the greatest all-rounder in the history of cricket, and the man whose "financial opportunism" made the Ashes what it is. Equally at home in the bookmakers' tent as at the wicket, he could have written the...
Extra tickets available. Fairly sporadic now but there none the less.
What's the predictions? Britain 3-2 for me.
Used to love watching this guy playing for the Racers. Stunned he's still been playing at that age!
I didn't know much about this guy until reading the build up to his fight last night which he was very impressive in.
The suggestion is that neither Cotto or Froch would be particularly keen to fight him and so he may face Andre Ward next.
Any boxing fans on here seen more of him than me?
What do you think is Scotland's (or someone who is Scottish) greatest sporting moment. Ideally, it should be a winning moment, but it could also be a moment of sportsmanship!
Scotland rugby - Grand Slam 1990
Scotland rugby - Grand Slam 1984
Andy Murray - Wimbledon 2013
Sandy Lyle - Masters...
Lots of boxing coming up, enjoy.
Nothing to do with football, nothing to do with Hibs, but HUGE well done to Wales for beating the English against all the odds. Just shows you what can be achieved in the face of adversity.
Just noticed that Brian Close has died - former England, Yorkshire and Somerset captain and a very fine opening batsman.
Brave man - stood up to Andy Roberts and Michael Holding without all the padding and headgear they wear nowadays.
Can someone remind me why there are no matches scheduled for Murrayfield in this WC? I know England is the host nation but Cardiff are putting on games.
Cardiff's not in England.
Great victory for Japan over South Africa in the World Cup.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
The final Grand Slam of the year begins tomorrow and on day one, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are both in action.
Djokovic should be on around 8pm UK time against Joao Souza whilst Nadal will be on around 2am on Tuesday against Borna Coric.
Andy Murray doesn't play until Tuesday but...
Anyone watching Mayweather tonight? Groves fight is just starting.
Good read in the Guardian - lengthy piece about how the All Blacks have sustained a winning team and a winning mentality over the decades.
Some interesting perspectives in relation to how we coach football here.
Great match on just now between Novak Djokovic and Alexandr Dolgopolov in the first semi final. Djokovic has just fought back from behind in the second set to level the match in the tiebreak after Dolgopolov won the opening set 6-4.
Murray and Federer still to come! :thumbsup:
I take in interest in boxing but far from an expert.
However, is Khan for real with some of the things he says about Mayweather?!
Can someone enlighten me?!
Congratulations to Andy Murray, and his wife Kim, on the announcement that they're expecting their first child together, early in the New Year!
Fantastic news. :aok:
Finished as a player v A Lewis then sneaked back from 6-1 down to win 8-7! Get in there!
Going Thursday and Friday on the hospitality :cheers:
Bets placed already £25 e/w on Jordan Spieth @ 13/2; and £25 e/w (free bet) on Oosthuizen @ 25 /1
Im looking to take up fishing, just with bait at the moment before i try fly fishing, any ideas where ill get a decent start up kit or what i should be looking for
I was demoing a TaylorMade AeroBurner recently and even though it was slightly longer and straighter than my super fast 2.0, the distance seemed quite a bit off. Do you guys trust those distances?
I took my old driver with me for comparison which is how I know the aero burner was longer, but my...
Up next, I can't help but think to time to call it a day for him. I hope I'm eating humble pie in a few rounds.
Gary Anderson kicks off his quest for the treble with a 10-4 win over Steve Beaton.
Some good deals here.
Twenty minutes in to the Springboks vs the All Blacks at Jo'burg.
Cracking game so far, the South Africans are well up for it, both sides trying to play a good and quick passing game.
That white the dart player his bird is tidy

Great Britain is in quarter final action this weekend against France, with the tie being held at Queen's Club.
Tomorrow's singles matches are;
James Ward v Gilles Simon
Andy Murray v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
It will be a really tough tie for Britain to win, with both French players ranked just...
Down twice in the first round!
Andy Murray faces a tough end to the tournament this year if he's to win Wimbledon for a second time.
He faces Mikhail Kukushkin in round one then probably Robin Haase in the second round, Andreas Seppi in the third round, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the last 16, Rafael Nadal in the quarter finals,...
Wondered if anyone was planning on heading along to this. Being played at Gullane Golf Club. A fantastic wee course with some breathtaking views. Looking at the line up this should be a cracking competition. Gonna try and get along as it's 10mins fi ma hoose. If you've not been down this way I...
I'm going to see them for the first time on Friday, has anyone been before? What should I expect in terms of crowds etc? Do you pay at the turnstiles like football or do they have a ticket office?
England currently 180-4, Root 104, another fine batting display from the young man.
Meant to post this earlier. Did anyone see this fight at the weekend? I've just watched the highlights and it's bizarre to say the least!
well done gary anderson rumoured to be one of us winning the world darts title.:flag::top marks
Finished off his rain delayed Semi Final v Troicki 6-3 7-6 before a pretty commanding 6-3 6-4 victory v Kevin Anderson in the Final.
Seems to be in good form with a week to go before Wimbledon, keep it going Andy! :hibees
Really looking forward to this. Although the course looks horrific on TV. Makes the greens at my course look like Augusta
The second Grand Slam of the year begins tomorrow and all of the usual faces are in Paris.
Roger Federer is in action against Alejandro Falla on day one and his fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka is also playing, so too is Kei Nishikori.
As far as Andy Murray's concerned, he is due to meet either...
Nice one Frankie! Golden Horn could turn out to be some horse. Got to feel a wee bit sorry for William Buick though.
