Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

I could have watched the singles final between Nadal and Gonzalez, but I've decided to watch fencing instead. Mens Team Sabre. And seems that I have been rewarded of my choice as the Frenchies took the gold.

Having an eye on athletics but not too focused. Have seen a replay of how Bolt showed who the boss was.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

Gnome, I just posted this on GM, here is some good stuff for you.


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".

Thanks for that. Now I have a better idea of Alex's talents when it comes to countryside works!! I had seen the pics before but seeing it like this is priceless. And I have to say Grosjean's English accent has nothing to envy to Gasquet's.

What do you think of big Marc's English accent then?

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".

Well, Marc's accent is better than Grosjean's or Gasquet's. I'd say he speaks like he had a little more practise than those 2.

Would you jump out a plane with those two?

Sorry to interrupt but I have a proposed system that might help the News thread operate more smoothly. I don't really know where else to post it.

Basically:




And then the current threat level could be posted somewhere for easy reference so desperate people don't have to keep bumping the thread begging for news:

You seem to have inherited a creative imagination. Surely that's a good thing.


Though I strongly believe that finesse as weapon doesn't apply to self-absorbed, imbecilic behaviour. Drastic measures are required.

Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

Snoo, that is so hilarious, that it's going to be used and used regularly.

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".

Awesome result!
Choupi, it must have taken unbelievable hard work and a lot of good health to do that.

Having been at a Georgian house in Avonshire last summer, I did realise that old houses may all look beautiful and serene from a distance (and not only...) but it is actually such brutal work behind the scenes. I could tell long stories of funny, and painful sometimes, accidents in that home but I'm bit short of time to tell the truth.

Had a break, back to work now. Having had a chaotic personality since ever, and not a deterministic one, I'm highly sensitive to initial conditions. That said and given the current conditions, I have to quit this board for a while.

Congrats gnome your handball boys are in the medal round beating Russia 27-24.

Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

Yes Getta, old houses don't lack charm but they require such hard work to keep it working.

My boys have beaten Russia but not the girls. And I have to say that the 2 Chinese umpires in that match were dreadfull. A shame. Congrats to the Russians but there will always be a bitter taste in my mouth.
Waiting for Doucouré, Djhone and Hurtis to do something good.

Going out tonight. Invited by the friend we've helped with his moving in.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: The Martin Jaite Appreciation and thanks for the memories Felix Mantilla Chat Thr

You have done so well with the old house and they were built to last, not just to look good.

The officiating has been awful in this event and I have seen a lot of the games. Well just hope Norway can take out the Russians if they meet in the final.

The athletics has been fun, though I don't like Ramzi won, he's a fine runner, but a mercenary.

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