Sports thread. by Ken Dunn on 21 November 2009 9:32pm
Having checked the thread titles from the past year it is apparent that there are extremely few sporting ones so I have started this one for those with an interest in sport to post their comments.

My first comment is on Scotland's rugby team historic win over Australia today. Scotland's first in 27 years and although the score was only 9 - 8 the game was very exciting. Chris Paterson came on in the second half and scored a drop goal to take the score to 9 - 3. After the 80 minutes had expired Australia scored a try but Giteau missed the conversion kick to give Scotland their win by a point. In Australia's previous 10 games against Scotland they have scored 30 points or more.

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, Scotland! I'm happy for them.

Thanks for that idea, Ken. It means I can do this.

A message to my beloved Chicago Bears:


Cheers. I feel so much better for that!

DRATS! The Ravens were giving Manning a run for his money but didn't come through in the end. At least we didn't lay down and roll over.

Tennis, anyone?

I saw some tennis yesterday afternoon at the O2 Centre in Greenwich. ATP World Tour. Saw Murray beat Del Potro - great tennis. There was also a doubles match first. I had a fantastic seat, second row from front. Murray's main coach and others of his team were sitting directly in front of the seats in front of me (which were empty).

I saw a little rugby on TV the other day. France was rolling over Samoa. Seldom is rugby televised here...a specialty channel has a lot but there is not enough to go around. I like world class rugby. When is the rugby worlds, Ken?

I saw a great sport on telly last night in America...anvil launching! They basically go into a paddock, stuck a heap of explosive under an anvil and detonate it! It just about went into orbit lol.

(ps do not try this at home!)

In the same competition that suzulu mentions, Andy Murray was beaten by Roger Federer 6-3 3-6 1-6.
