    i always appreciate a great climax.

    Yes i hear Miller has been DQN - why is this so? That's a shame.
    Straddled the gate ie put he skis either side of it.

    Well well, Ligety wins! A great last run from him but feel a bit for Raich. Bad error but the slalom is always tough.

    Is it wrong to support The Americans when I'm English?

    I'm sorry, but I'm a big Sasha Cohen fan, I was fairly upset wehn Michelle kwan withdrew a few days ago aswell - I'm big on figure skating, the only other thing I've watched on the Winter Olmpics so far is Curling (like watching paint dry but we have a slight chance do we brits)

    Nah, it's not a big deal, especially when there is no one from your country in the competition.

    It is wrong to support anyone over the English/British but if none of them are competing it is acceptable.

    nothing wrong with the yanks

    its the U.S administration that there is something seriously wrong with, any Americans i've stumbled across and they with me, very warm, charming people.

    I.e. Roddick, fantastic tennis player, great personality and bubbly....all this anti-americanism bóllocks - its pitiful and people confuse it with what it isnt - it surely is related/ applies to American big-business and the US administration, Bush and his close group of 'advisers' etc....

    London Blitz American Football Club at Linford Christie Stadium which is right by Hammersmith Hospital. To get there by tube you will need to take the central line to East Acton. Alternatively by bus route 7 goes to the hospital where a 5 minute walk will lead you to the stadium.

    4 time BDO champ ray barneveld has just defected to the PDC and will play in the premier league darts tomorrow against ronnie baxter.

    Personally I think Phil Taylor is still going to clean this title up.

    Just wanted to say that I think Baseball is vastly underated in the UK.

    I've been over in Tampa numerous times and seen the Devil Rays (yeah I know they're really bad, but my Auntie is from Tampa) and it's a great sport.

    As good as Barnie is, I can't see him getting the better of Taylor.
