Re: What annoys people????

Transatlantic flight direct from Orlando to Beefast only taking 7 hours................and then waiting for 90 mins for luggage in Belfast Internationl airport. A large number of bemused Americans travelling here for the Open all standing around a circulating empty luggage belt! Don't know for sure...

Re: What are you listening to?

It appears that some of the regulars in Robinson’s were impressed with my version of The Sun Always Shines on TV but a couple of those lads doing Metallica etc were unreal. I got a free shot voucher and a well done by the guy running it so I’m currently feeling very proud. Nice one >you_rock D'ye d...

Re: The Golf

Are there any middle class people left in Belfast? Wonder how many houses have been robbed in S Belfast and Cultra?

Astounded to discover that after the mega hype from Winker, Donna and Mike McGoldrick, BBCNI don't even have coverage of the feckin thing. :lol:

Bruce Cupcake seems to be the man?

Re: Cricket season

Dodgey decision. A run that should never have been given. Was the umpire Russian?

You can only imagine the furore in the Engerlish media if the situation had been reversed.

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

Being a good speaker is not related to being good for the country though. Some of the previous PM's were good or better orators but have fairly shameful records. That being said if someone like Boris is yer PM tis probably time to start planning an exit. I get what you are trying to say but there h...

But, I suppose as soon as a pasttime becomes a sport and a sport becomes an industry, things change. How many horses are...
