I think that's the first time I've seen Shot of the Day go to the player who lost the point!

Am I mistaken or is our very own Ms. Schiller based in the Cincinnati area? Several months back I thought that she mentioned something about being around for the current tournament. Nathalie, if you are out there somewhere how about an update?

Have been a little hard on you lately,so I'll gently ask you that,if she were so inclined to visit us here,don't you think she'd probably post something?Or were you using typed telepathy to contact her?

If you were an up-and-comming athlete with a known identity here, would you want to post in a forum section that's rapidly becoming a hangout for psychotically whinging drama queens, clueless intrusionists, trolls, and compulsive gamblers? I dare say she is giving the place a wide birth together with the other sane members that used to post here...

So did anybody venture out in a bright coloured one-piece and a balaclava today?

Well,perhaps you're right--I hadn't thought about it that way

I probably would have in the days before I became an old fart. From what little I heard from them the're a pretty lousy band, but it's nevertheless great to see that rock'n'roll is back to being considered dangerous by the powers that be. Pussy Riot have exposed for the whole world to see that Poetin asshole for the intollerant ego-maniac that he is. And they took their sentence with a cynical smile on their faces, which is the perfect statement about this fake trial. For those things alone those three girls have me respect.

But that sort of thing is not limited to Caroline's player forum. It's the same on the other fan forums. As long as their object of adoration is doing well everyone gets along, is in a good mood and finds no reason to nag or complain about anything. And even if there are some differences of opinion about minor issues, nobody really minds because the general mood is one where everyone is walking around with a huge smile on their faces. But when things start going wrong everyone starts to wonder why that is and inevitably different people will come to different conclusions, and those differences start to get irritating whereas previously we would have just shrugged our shoulders. Also - immediately after a disappointing loss it's understandable that fans feel the need to vent their frustrations. It doesn't necessarily make them bad fans or fakes, because if they were they wouldn't be here but at GM celebrating Caro's missfortune with the rest of 'em.

^^ Russia .. Unfortunately, they have oil and especially a lot of gas, so we all have to bow and crawl and take great care, not to 'offend' them.

On a happier note, the Premier League starts today My own team is currently 2nd!!! Unfortunately though, I fear this may well also be our best standing this season. Caroline's team is starting in 6th
