thanks. So, anyone been up to anything exciting?
went to see the Newcastle-Mansfield match today... :-p
Will that kill this thread?
i reckon you'd have appreciated it.
charlie k stepped down.
THAT football match.
There is plenty up for discussion
well, playing it anyway altho I am a bit crap.
Once upon a time Bamos and I were having a pint and an old man bouced a dart off the board and it exploded my glass. Fact.
Exploded it? As in, "KABOOM"?
One of the fatties took a sip from a bottle and the commentator said, "I can assure you that's not alcohol." You just don't get those lines in Football or Rugby.
and I got lots of cider in my boots.
I don't really like football either.
So... err... uhm... the weather! bit cold, eh?
it's got much warmer here in Sweden which makes it VERY dangerous to go out
we had about 20cm of snow and now it's just over freezing the pavements are like trying to walk on an slowly melting ice rink
plus the massive snow falls are avalanching off the rooves
and there are metre long icicles forming everywhere
a potential follow on from that film where they trick fate and avoid dying.. tho I think it already had a sequel..
but people are falling over left right and centre
you have to look up to avoid falling snow and icicles and you have to look down to avoid massive puddles that form on top of the ice
it's a nightmare
is how footbally it is.
Like there's a real kind of 'football' quality to it which other activities lack.
I think it's the combination of 'foot' and 'ball' which lends it this strange presence.
If I were to rate it's Football Attributes, I'd give football 9.5.
it looks like it's going to be really horrible.
other sports then football and cricket?
sounds a hoot.
made a basketball thread just for me some weeks ago.
I was happy !
22 overpaid wankers kicking a piece of leather around a field.
Unless they are a pub team....
I was talking about the watching of the game on telly, but yeah, I realise there are some teams without the excessive cash. In which case it's just guys kicking a ball around.
At the end of the day sport is for playing not for watching.
