I've just discovered a new (to me) sport. Beach rugby.

Is that a sport designed for ladies to ogle beefcake?

7 minutes in, and Scotland aren't losing yet.

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.

Good basis for a new 'Ripping Yarn'.

British tennis player Dan Evans makes it to the third round of the US Open.

Never heard of him before, but good on him.

Today is John Wisden's 187th birthday. For some reason Australians may have a superstitious fear of this.

bobb and I were up at the Commie today and Wednesday watching Edinburgh diving club's internal competition. Grace Reid is a member of that club - she came 6th at the last Commonwealth Games. I'll be surprised if she doesn't get a medal next year; she's outstanding. Some of the younger ones look very promising too.

My Spanish is dodgy, but Cristiano Ronaldo is only 2 goals from breaking Ferenc Puskas' record for goals in La Liga.
Quote
El portugués lleva 154 goles en 145 partidos; el húngaro los marcó en 180. En este curso de los 32 goles del Real Madrid, 15 son de Cristiano (el 47%).
So it's not only the Premier League that's dominated by foreign players!

My stepson completed his second Ironman on Saturday, at Panama City BEach, Florida.  In 11hrs, 16 mins and 15 secs.  An improvement of some 2 1/2hrs on his first attempt 3 years ago.  Major improvement was in cycling leg, average up from 15mph to 20mph.  And his run was around 10mins/mile instead of 12.   :thumbsup:

Golf.

Going to Old Trafford on Saturday. Good news-its free and corporate and food and drink will be taken on board.
Looking forward to Swansea doing a repeat performance .
Bad news -5 pm kick off means late journey home on overcrowded TPE train.

Yay- just got two tickets for Scotland v England  at Murrayfield. There is a God after all. :)

Steven Gerrard, what a guy.

It's a wonderful gesture but I'm just a bit surprised that he's done it all so publicly.  Maybe he's trying to encourage other overly-rich sportsmen to do the same sort of thing, in which case, I hope it works!

Hm.  Bit bored, no work tomorrow.  I may stay up and watch the Super  Bollix thing.
Popped over the road for Twiglets and Minstrals.  :P

Nah.  Fell asleep on the settee before it started.  Woke up just as the first quarter was coming to the end.  Watched a couple of minutes of the second quarter.  Couldn't get into it.  Went to bed.

How long is it since the team at the top of the premiership were 5 - 0 down?

Edit: I have just read that Arsenal's heaviest defeat at Anfield was 5 - 0 in 1964.

And James Heatley of EDC beat Tom Daley last weekend.
