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

I would have loved to join the Dutch argument with some serious reasoning but I did not get it.

What was it about? lol! (no laughing at Rafa or Hilde here)

Patrick Chan did an excellent performance, not easy in front of the home crowd but he's just too good.
Javier Fernadez and the Japanese boys didn't do that well. Hope they'll improve in the long program.

Should I wake up 4 am for Fedal?

did you hear about this

Barcelona take divine inspiration from papal conclave to win 4-0 – again

Because, call it Divine inspiration (or perhaps just a divine display from Lionel Messi) but a 4-0 victory for the Catalan giants was always on the cards – and so it proved.

For Tuesday night’s romp, courtesy of a brace from Messi and goals from David Villa and Jordi Alba, was the third time Barcelona have played during a papal conclave, and every game has finished with a 4-0 win.

In 1958, the blaugrana put their great rivals Real Madrid to the sword while the Catholic Church were busy selecting Pope John XXIII. Then, in 1978, Las Palmas were hit for four while the white smoke announcing the election of Pope John Paul II – himself a handy footballer – was being awaited.

Now we’re sure Barca fans won’t wish any misfortune on the next man to get the nod to take the Vatican City reins, but they’ll surely rest easy in the knowledge that, when the conclave next meets to pick the Church’s new boss, the team at the Nou Camp will be the only guaranteed winner.

What is going on? I bet Evita watched the match Nadal-Gulbis I watched a lot of Gulbis-Seppi, quite entertaining match. Gulbis seems to have grown, normally I would expect him to melt away after losing the first set but he stayed in the match.

Good old Hilde, what an alpha she is.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
