Don't know if any technic-afficionadas are left here, but I found it kinda cool (plus some students from "my" university )) created this team of flying robots that can throw balls around and catch them by working together.
...kinda scary, Terminator comes to mind....
I already see myself being hunted by a pack of such robots in the future

I was very much surprised by the initial reports on it because Hazard doesn't have the reputation of being a bad boy and this proves it.
the more i watched it the funnier it is, that ballboy - self styled The king of all ball boys great acting job he put on and he can say he helped his team win, now he has 100,000 twitters




what a BOSS




Ashley Cole's mother described the Swansea ball boy Charlie Morgan involved in the Eden Hazard incident as a 'f***ing little s***' on her Facebook page.

Rumors about Rafa's knee problems got me super depressed.
Excuse me while I cry like a lil girl.

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

Made to wonder once more. Somedays he feels pain in his knee, why then play 3 events in a month and doubles in Chile? He truly is Seles' equal when it comes to scheduling, and there was no worse player. Doubles should be put on the back burner this year, im(hopeful)o forever. Scrap IW, Madrid & Canada too. I seriously doubt he'd come back if he was out for another 6+ month stretch. It's worrisome after all this time he still feels pain. Having wrote that I cannot wait for a week today!

My quotes don't appear for some reason. The elephants' situation is terrible; I hope they find whoever is doing it. Elephants are awesome and that baby is so cute.

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

From an article - (this will go down well with GM's 'moonballing brigade')

However, since he recovered from a double knee injury and started to play again last November, the Spaniard has spent most of his time trying to adapt to the new tool of his trade: Babolat’s Aeropro Drive racquet.
According to Babolat, the new racquet and new strings give "more power and more control" to the Spaniard’s shots. "More top spin, he already has a lot of that, but he wants more," he said.

(Wilander cannot open his mouth without mentioning Fed.)
Questions focus on the winner of a record seven titles at the French Open: at 26, will he be able to replicate the form and results of his best years? Several top commentators have doubts.
"I don’t think he necessarily needs time to be Nadal, but I think he needs some time for the other players to think of him as the old Nadal, because I think players lose a lot of respect: not respect for him as a person, but respect for his level," Mats Wilander said.
The Swede, a three-time French Open winner and former world No1, is sure that even if his name is Rafael Nadal, "he’s still an outsider" in Paris this year, with Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Federer the men to beat.
"This is the year of Novak and Andy’s chance to win the French, and Roger’s already won it, but it’s obviously his chance too."
Tennis legend Andre Agassi, another former world No1, agrees. He thinks Nadal cannot be expected to return to top form before 2014.
