Commonwealth games

Postby User removed » 16 Mar 2006, 14:33

I just got back from watching the Rugby 7's... Exciting stuff, especially with some real underdog fights (Uganda beating Tonga, who had beaten South Africa earlier). I was wondering if its being given any attention up in the North? There seemed to be quite a few of you poms in the stadium tonight, made yourselves heard when Oz played England...

The only reason you won was cause the ref's a wanker :P

The Commonwealth games are like Sports Day at school. You only go to watch the little kid that you know, you cheer for them, then once their race is done you dont gice a s**t for anyone else and wait ill its home time.

It only seemed interesting when it was in Manchester. I went to see the table tennis at the 2002 Commonwealth games.

The world's competitors aren't there. the chinese for the gymnastics, the US for the track and field. It's an odd games, I've always thought. Still, I can cheer for muffins until my throat goes dry.
Ah well, at least Melbourne economy should bolster strongly over the next 2, 3 years due to this event. Manchester still has a vibe to it.

The Australians aren't bad at swimming and neither are the scots, it seems! Go Scotland.

I thinks it's great that the people of Australia are getting behind and supporting the Commonwealth games in such good numbers.
I really like the Australian attitude to sport.

What a opening ceremony too !

England won gold and silver in some event, swimming or something. I was told this though, I don't watch it.

I think the home nations have won a whole heap of medals in the pool. They've also won some medals in things like the cycling.

Yee Ha...... The British entries have turned into fish.

So far it seems to me that most honours are being split between us than our cousins down under.
In a competitive sense i wonder if we (UK) will win more than down under overall at the end of the games, seeing they like to kick our butts with regards to anything which involves sport.

And we do too! :P

But sometimes we do go overboard with passion, like that poor Englishman who got beaten up in the stadium...His bloody attackers said he was "cheering too loudly" for supporting England. Like he said, we'd expect some pom-bashing, just not physical stuff.

Was just watching a program about the future of british sport, and how we're trying to copy the aussie attitude towards producing world clas athletes. Anyhoo, there was this 11 year year old diver who managed to qualify for these games, but was too young :(.

I say they should have let him go, if just for the novelty value.:D
