In Topic: The TV Thread

Today, 08:24 PM

I've enjoyed Car Share.  Lots going on in the background to, with shop names and the adverts on Forever FM.

 

Me too - I thought Peter Kay had lost it but then I saw him do a bit of a cameo at, of all places, a gig by Difford and Tilbrook from Squeeze (he's a big fan) and he ad libbed with them and the audience and was very funny. So I gave Car Share a go and was pleasantly surprised. It was hardly ground breaking but it was funny and developed the characters beautifully. Like in Phoenix Nights, you have to like or at least believe in the characters for comedy to work.


In Topic: Cricket.....Again

Today, 08:03 PM

That was unexpected. One of the best games of Test cricket you could wish for - well played New Zealand too, at least up until Stokes came in yesterday.

 

It might be too early to give Australia a real fight this summer, but the signs are more promising than they were a few months ago. Just need a bit of consistency now, and hope that Lyth is the player we think he could be at that level. And that Bell gets his form back.

I think teams go hard at Leigh and as you would expect with Barlow and Hock in the side they respond in kind. I don't think Fev can take any moral high ground - the red card incident was appalling.

 

Leigh Centurions - coming to a Super league game near you in 2016! ;)


In Topic: Ireland votes yes

Yesterday, 10:02 AM

At the wife's church the priest there is an old Irish gent and is best described as traditionalist. He's been saying prayers against this for weeks now. He'll have a proper cob on him today.

 

God wasn't listening


In Topic: Power .... League .... anyone?

Yesterday, 07:46 AM

Reminds me of when Homer Simpson changed his name to "Max Power"

 

Homer : [Homer is buying a shirt] ... And I want the monogram to read "M-a-x P-o-w..."

Store clerk: Sir, traditionally, mongrams are just your initials.

Homer : Max Power doesn't abbrieviate! In his name, each letter is as important as the one that preceded it. Maybe even *more* important... No, *as* important.

Store clerk: Fine.

[She walks away with the shirt to apply the monogram]

Homer : And if there's any room left, add a bunch of exclamation points and a pirate flag!
