Murray will win Roland Garros, so they'd better do it fast

Independence isn't going to happen and if it miraculously does it won't last long.

Not sure why we're discussing politics but as I reside in Scotland, well for another 2 years before I emigrate to Aus or Far East, Murray will win a slam before the slime ball politicians ever winning a vote to seperate Scotland from the UK which would mean disaster.

Independence will lose by one vote in the referendum, the same day that Murray loses after wasting MP in Wimbly final.

I think the end of the world is likely to come before both of these events.

Re: Scottish Independence or Andy Murray winning Grand Slam, which occurs first?

A grand slam winning Murray will be the slight ticking off of some people. An independent Scotland will be the death of us all.

Vamos Scotland

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

You can laugh all you want but Fact remains plain and simple. He has the talent to win the Grand Slam. When he fixes his temperament he will win.

Re: Scottish Independence or Andy Murray winning Grand Slam, which occurs first?

Independent Scotland? How are they supposed to fund themselves? Sell whisky to me? I don't drink that much. Only when Nadal wins a slam.

Besides I thought Murray would be upgraded from Scottish to full Englishman if he ever won a slam. Right now he's probably at 65%-70% on the scale. They want him a little bit but if he fails they can still abandon him and lock him up in Scotland again
