since when is russia part of europe? I am surprised they would even want to be, seeing as they are all russian and that. but I suppose they wouldn't have anyone to play with if they didn't get involved.

I'm not following sports by and large, but I just can't get enough of sport fans' talks. They cheer they whine they curse they pray, use flowery or coarse langue. They're as alive as one can be.

(should be in life little's pleasure thread too).

and whether they win or lose, they always drink lots and lots of alcohol.

Actually, that is backwards. The winners tend to do more vandalism and other unpleasant things than the losers (the losers just don't have the energy I think).

Well, the losers just drink more to forget their loss.

either way, the bars win.

Le tour, another 3 weeks of sleep deprivation has commenced. Living in Aus can make this a real pain in the arse but I will be rooting for Silence-Lotto this year, Cadel and Co have a good chance to take out the title.

Williams vs Williams turned out to be a better game of tennis than I anticipated too. Federer had better beat Nadel tonight or I am going to lose beer(s), why is it a good idea to make these bets when you can't even focus let alone make a decision based on something resembling a non alcoholic haze?

Someone loses, someone wins. The winners are generally happy, the losers generally sad.

The split is more even than real life.


In a nutshell, this is why they are such frequent fodder for movie drama.

While not following it religiously, I quite interested in this years Tour. I'm hoping for a win by Devolder, but that's so unlikely that I'll be happy if Cadel Evans wins. (Silence-Lotto is a belgian team) Furthermore I can only hope that other belgians (Steegmans ?) win some legs now that Boonen isn't allowed to participate.

And for those interested in tennis, the Wimbledon final is truly amazing.

Favre's unretirement.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/17/sports/football/17rhoden.html?em&ex=1216440000&en=bb41f9027264129d&ei=5087%0A

I post this article, from the many written, simply for Tony Dungee's hilarious hypothetical statements being used as gospel testimony, terrible journalism at it's most, uh, terrible.

Frankly, I think there hasn't been a decent unretirement since Cruyff joined Feyenoord.

I will take it as conclusive and indisputable proof of god's existence if this situation results in Favre taking the Bears to the Superbowl.

You take that back right now! This all never happened. It's just a horrible nightmare.
