Re: “The very best of Bilbo”, Insights of a gamblers life, my very best phrases

So now I know the context of "This X is good." That one has puzzled me for weeks!

...when you publish your phrasebook, I want a share of the royalties for suggesting the idea to you!

I'm afraid we'll never get to know the true meaning.

How dare does such a quality thread and subject matter get moved to this section.

Expected win.
The grandma in the wheekchair
The rip them a new one.

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".

Re: “The very best of Bilbo”, Insights of a gamblers life, my very best phrases

I must say I love Bilbo. I have been following his classic quotes since Covers. Reading in-game threads always keeps me laughing while Bilbo is around.

Don't forget, "You can stick a fork in (enter players name)"
I also liked "Clear as water", "That was very clear" or "That was fucking clear"
"Brutal"
"Watch (player name) get broken here"
"lick my prick you asshole"
"(player name) is a serve only player"
When it starts raining or there is bad weather "Welcome to (insert city name), ladies and gentlemen"
"(Player name) is in deep shit if you ask me"
"just my luck"
or the very simple "Fuck you, (player name)"

All classics!!!! I can't stop laughing!!!
Keep up the good work, my good friend
