    I did watch....glad to see SU get that 3rd goal....

    I've been to Bramall Lane a few times...first time in 1987 SU playing against Vinnie Jones and Wimbledon when both were in the old First Division...and standing in the terraces...my first English football match and quite something...

    A stadium in Nepal is preparing to host the South Asian Games. According to a report in a local newspaper,

    Along with football, hammer throw around the track and field, discuss throw, javelin throw, pole vault, shot put, high jump, long jump, and staple chess are scheduled to be played on the ground.
    Discuss throw and staple chess! I've seen the first bit of cluelessness before, but not the second. Staple chess? That boggles.

    1. DT is for people who only talk a great game.
    2. SC is for people who work in an office with only one stapler and have to out-maneuver fellow workers to get it.

    I think this is a new wrinkle here. bambam's response to br's pos, above, is time-stamped one minute BEFORE br's post. How is that possible?
