Less than 100 days to the World Cup finals now. Who are you guys predicting to go all the way? I'm hoping for a Brazil-England final myself. Either could win it, but it depends who's more up for it on the day, I think.

Germany lost 4 v 1 against Italy a few weeks ago, not a good start for them.

Anyone watched the start of the Commonwealth games, has been good so far.

You're very full of hope.
Too bad the english national side can't be Chelsea FC:D

Looks like the Aussies bounced back in the cricket in South Africa. Well, they've got Warne in Tests.
Too easy!
Apparently the english could level the series in India.

By the way, did the english journalist murder Andrew Robinson (the rugby coach  )

Well, the Commonwealth Games are over... and unsurprisingly, Australia got more medals than everyone else, 221 in all (twice as many as England )

see the Comm. Games website for a full medal tally.

Yes Australia did well but it was expected to be the best, being the home nation and it is recognised as the best sporting nation who were competing in the games. I am pleased with Englands hall of about 110 medals, we were still second above Canada and India.

yeah, you can be happy with the knowledge that you got 1/2 the medals Australia did, which really is a good total

How many countries were competing?
Which sports - or rather events?
Lawn balls, c'mon  
Why not bridge or gin rummy...

Must have been about 80, almost all Commenwealth countires except Zimbabwe I think. A full athletics schedule, then things like Rugby 7s, swimming, cycling, shooting, squash etc...

I watched the tennis yesterday (Miami, Masters series), with the introduction of players' appeal to TV umpiring. They're each allowed 2 appeals per set : if they appeal wrongly, they lose 1 appeal, if the appeal is in their favour, they can use it again during the same set.

Interesting. Specially on concrete or carpet floors.
Not much use on clay covered with brickdust.

But I think definitely an improvement and more pressure on the umpire!
for example, Baghdatis appealed 3x in the 2nd set, and got a right decision 2x
That means the umpires are wrong 2/3 of the time...

Now what? The appeal to TV umpiring for cricket? Though top umpires are statistically making only 3 to 5% wrong decisions.

Oh dear. I feel so embarrased to be British at the moment!

We've now unveiled our Official Olympics Logo.. By the gods it looks awful.

To quote a few official sources.

[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]"When people see the new brand, we want them to be inspired to make a positive change in their life.
Prime Minister Tony Blair

"This is a truly innovative brand logo that graphically captures the essence of the London 2012 Olympic Games - namely to inspire young people around the world through sport and the Olympic values. " International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge   [/quote]

Bwhahahahaha. What are they on!

It looks cheap, nasty, and horrible. If that's what 400,000 pounds buys you in this country (apparently the rumoured cost of the design) we don't deserve a single medal.... and probably wont win any, anyway!

I'm of the age not to far off these Young People they're supposed to be aiming at and I'm laughing my butt off!

It took me a long, long while to realise I was looking at 2012. I have to agree that it's cheap, nasty, horrible. I could've regurgitated better after a weekend spent binge-drinking.

I agree it is a horrible looking image. I really hope it is changed due to public hatred.

One has to wonder how they decided on that jagged, unreadable, appears-as-though-it-were-done-by-a-2-year-old logo when there was this as a nice, easy-to-read, simplistic alternative.

And one really has to wonder how in God's name it costs 400,000 pounds to produce such rubbish.
