EDIT - OT! Paul why did you miss the shot at the buzzer? I love basketball cuz things can turn around so fast. And yeah Paul messed up at the end-redemption time Chris...Go Hornets.
I actually fell asleep with 5 minutes left to go in the game.

I love Scottish English, it's my second fav accent. You must've heard Billy Boyd? His talking is

Me too, I've wondered for a long time why doesn't he use his accent. That might make him more attractive

Tattooed guys usually make me run but Tipsy is kinda cute
Have you heard (or seen!) James McAvoy I need to see one of his movies

All us Gasquet fans of 2008 can relate to that all too well unfortunately. But 2009 is a new year...

I think Simon is feeling the pressure of keeping a stop in the Top 10. so far this year he really hasn't played nearly as well as last year when he was fighting to get to Top 10. As they say, it's a lot easier to get to top 10 then it is to stay Top 10 - ask Richie and many others.

Re: The Gasket Blowers Chat Thread

If the media stopped expecting him to fail and saying he doesn't deserve to be in the top 10 then maybe he'd relax and enjoy the experience. You're right though. That's why the people who stay in the top 10 are so special such as Roddick, Federer, Nadal etc...

I like an emotional man. I even love him when he shows how white he is. I even love him in Machine mode. BTW, that is sooooooooooo funny.

they have Jamie Murray showing the contents of his tennis bag there. Funnily enough though, in this clip his accent is actually similar to Andy's which is weird because I've seen him interviewed on UK channels and his Scottish accent is definitely thicker. Maybe they're told to tone down their accent when they're not in the UK in case people can understand them? I'm not being funny by saying that but the Scottish accent can sometimes be a bit hard to understand ... so can the Irish one too if you're not used to it!
Yeah, it's kinda hard sometimes. Seems that all the cute accents are hard at first hearing. For example, I didn't understand Aussie English (my fav accent) at all, now I do better.

Thanks, Eimear, I'll watch that clip!

I suppose I just have this image in my head of the Scottish accent because of Sir Alex Ferguson, Billy Conolly and Darren Fletcher ... they all have really thick accents I like Jamie's accent. I just find him easier to understand than Andy. That's not a criticism of Andy. I love him to bits. Hell I love my brother like crazy yet I can hardly understand him sometimes when he talks his accent is that broad

I actually find Andy's accent easier to understand But I prefer Jamie's.

They're both nice to listen.

Re: The Gasket Blowers Chat Thread

My favourite accent is the Manchester accent ... yes I have an obssession with Manchester I admit it I do a mean impression of it too actually. One time I was in Manchester and I was doing the accent while talking to my friend and someone came up and asked me if I knew where the Trafford Centre shopping complex was They thought I was a Manc. I feel like an honorary Manc though. I do love the Aussie accent Venle. Its really, really sexy I think. Hope you enjoyed the clip

Its funny you say you find Andy's accent easier to understand because I'm the opposite but I guess we all pick up sounds/accents etc differently.
