Lightning fast reactions, bullet proof face, and balls of steel.

Peter Schmeichel started out as a Handball Goalie.

The Euros are on the EHF YouTube channel if you're in England .

The final should be uploaded later.

After having considered it, actually I may revise that opinion. For some reason I thought the ball was quite soft and goalkeepers wore a helmet thing.

The danish keeper played part of the final with cotton wool stuffed up his nose to stem the blood flow

How humble of you to feign ignorance on the legends of your homeland;as you well know,the native Antarctican language is very similar to English,so the names I mentioned have been only slightly Anglicized from the original ones.What hurt Antarctican tennis the most was when European settlers convinced the locals that they needn't clear layers of ice from the tennis court,in order to play,if they only moved farther northward.

Eventually,the disappearance of so many talented Juniors led the Antarctican Youth Development Program to disband,and the former tennis mania was never re-kindled

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro:Off-topic 4 the POPULAR #1

It's kind of funny that Fed has won 50% (10-10) of his tiebreaks against Nadal despite being such a mental midget against him while Djokovic has won only 22% (2-7).

The Australian Open needs to be sped up some (surface, balls) for next year and the US Open this year needs to get back to reasonably fast playing conditions like it normally is and not slow as molasses like last year.

They should just get back to how it was in the past. Four slams - four different court speeds. That includes making Wimbledon faster again and the FO slower.

Yah, that's more less or what I want.

Outside of the slams, there are too many slow hard courts. How about some fast ones or medium ones?

I agree. Might help solve the injury problem as well to some degree. Not that they should get rid of slow hard courts entirely. The bigger the differences the better imo. Also a matter of giving every player a fair shot in terms of having some tournaments that suit his or her particular game.

The courts are tuned to the ATP...

I agree the FO should favour clay specialist... Wimbledon, I'm not so sure, but anything other than a service festival would be their target I imagine? Longer matches with more rallies and net play...

I'm partial by the double act of the two kittens in the mess. It's like a kind of dark satirical stupidity manifested with obsessively frequent references to the opposition, and a delusional foundation that Sunshine and another element are some how interdependent. The almost cult status that this dependency evolves into when in a rational sense it has no theological or practical relevance to life at all, progresses into opposition to opposition through slight that brings about opposition, in what is paradoxical in it's simplicity and profoundly humorous when you consider it is a situation that exist in a species intelligent enough to put members of it's kind on the moon to kick rocks.

Ironic really.
