Hey guys just to let you know the Olympics have just started. GB currently in 3rd spot not bad for a country that only wins medals sitting down.

Australia currently in 19th behind Kazakhstan, Cuba and two Korea's And New Zealand of course. Still plenty of time to catch up.

Enjoy.

problem with the olympics is wrong time of the year really for most of us in aust.business end of our nrl & afl seasons & the v8 supercars are in full flight in the series.Great day had by all at QLD raceway for the Ipswich round.Great sunny day with good racing.More a Ford man but most like Lowndes like i do great racing by him.We all loved his burnout on the hill to celebrate his win.

Hey Chris love my sports and it does not bother me one bit that the soap dodgers are doing well. It's all good.

In saying this the Uk has a population of 62 million people compared to our pissy 22 million people so the odds should favour the poms in being able to pick decent athletes.

There might be more of us but judging by the economy there are a lot of us doing nothing. What about Bradley Wiggins, true brit Born in Belgium, English mother and Australian father.

At least our performance will guarantee the four-yearly ritual humiliation by our enemies and all those we brought pain, misery and prosperity to over the past 200 years will be put on hold for another 4 years.

Oh no !!!!!!!!!!!!! down to 24th now. behind Belarus population under 10 million. When will this nightmare end.

How about when the North Korean football team came onto the pitch and the TV screen introducing the players showed the South Korean flag. They said we did it deliberately.

Which we probably did. :lol: :lol: :lol:

ps just seen two Australian canoeists get to a final. Apparently they have improved immensely since a great white was slipped into the boating lake.

Just seen it......................Auszealand. add the medals together. Why not do a deal with the Koreans and form Korozealand. That should put you up the table a bit.


Germans have just registered a complaint about Team GB cycling team. Apparently our wheels are going around faster than their wheels.


Our cycling team now has more gold medals than 65 countries.

Boy have we waited for this .

auszealand ha ha could never go for the sheep as they support every other country in sport against us australians(just jealous of australia,funny ssssooooo many come to live here )must of been a sheep who put the idea of auszealand in your head.The sheep need us so we dont cut the cable under the tasman from us that stops them from floating down to antartica.

I used to work with this sheep who always said when the poms beat us at anything he was happy.He said this was due to them being the south pacific poms.Funny that they dont sound anything like u poms.Anyway you kiwi's are alright we like you thats why we keep the cable attached.

Not sure why but reading your posts Jason leaves me exhausted.

Yorkshire population 5.3 million now have more medals than Australia. That will please Geoffrey Boycott who has just been made president. ( Yorkshire Cricket club not county that is ).

Cricket is doing fine. We'll beat the sweet S A's in the final test. And a bonus, Ireland are playing South Africa A touring side here in Coleraine next week. And it's free entrance....... Just the weather to sort out.

Sadly I think you are grasping at straws. Your boys and girls are coming home today after a great games. Not one asked for asylum. Unlike the whole
Cameroon team who have relocated to Bristol.

BTW I'm actually Welsh by birth but raised in England and now reside in Northern Ireland. Nationality is no more than a state of mind.

As Dr Johnson said,

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. He also said "Is not the Giant's-Causeway worth seeing?" "Worth seeing, yes; but not worth going to see."
He got that right as well.

Joking only but very similar to Tony {egg} Greig as in birth,raised & current location.No where like home & i am sure most would think that, so enjoy.Good on ya it's been fun as i am sure it will be again in the future.
