I really enjoyed this. As in real life / face to face, conversations merge from concerns, to empathy, to personal and enjoyable experiences and memories. I try to balance lifestyle, politics, news, lessons, history, jokes, beliefs ... a bit of everything, so as not to get us all too dragged down with the ugly nonsense ... We need our strength, and it's nice to get to know each other.

 

I smiled at the snooker anecdotes, and have thought of it intermittently ever since. 😃 It's so beautifully human. I better start a thread?! Is there a mixed post here for the little things we see and do that make us tick ...

 

I met Steve Davis 2 years ago, and Jimmy White last autumn. He was charming and fascinating, and it was lovely to see him in the flesh. Especially with all the fear 'restrictions' still going on. He made me feel that was all in another world.

 

Really well said mate. There is a "sport and entertainment" section, and a snooker-specific thread would be great.

Thank you Anti Facts Sir, I look forward to reading that and sharing some more memories and experiences soon.

Davis or White (regarding the description)? They're very different, albeit both introverted i think. Jimmy is of the Ronnie/Trump mould, many top sports players share similar psychological facets as them because they are most in tune with their body and physical surroundings https://www.psychologyjunkie.com/the-adventurers/

Steve Davis is cool, classic thinker type and interested in a variety of things. Took the game to another level.

I just think normies ain't down with this shit. It's almost a step too far. Totally agree about the yellow and blue signalling though. 🤭👍

I am not watching any football anymore. Its just a weird cult at this point. If i get into sport again it will be cricket. Glad hungary one though. Its just beyond a joke. "Oh look booing, you must be racist racist bad'. Retarded. Makes my piss boil. Honestly not even going to give my energy to these submersive cretins. 

I wouldn't mind so much i know the money is ridiculous but if i could just watch the game instead they add this crap with it. Their self awareness is non existent. I mean if you was "a big football star" you might think to yourself okay i am paid handsomely to play the sport i love howabout i shut my mouth and play football? I wouldn't mind so much but its not like any of them have anything intelligent to say. 

 

Or better yet imagine being in your late 20s and earning 60k to 150k or even 200k a week? Perhaps (some are at their peak 27 -29) if you didn't agree with what was happening with the politics etc why not speak out? Even more so if your career is waning or you are starting to slow down,I would tell my agent to fuck off and come out and say my truth. If they try to hound me out retire and make a career, or become a peoples champion sure you could get a job on gb news or something or better yet start your own internet channel. People like me live pay to pay cheque and while i would stand up against immoral actions, i am on my arse if i lose my job these parasites aren't. And i am not bitter because they are successful either. Couldn't give a shit normally but its now lunacy levels.  To the point blokes who are in regular jobs saying with no irony "ah yeah man city are only being offered 80mil which is nothing really, peanuts".

 

What i found insulting was players like sterling being brought up in our country and being given the opportunity to earn large amounts of money and have fans adore him, and then start virtue signalling and crying. Imagine if some of these high profile black players came out and said "actually my experience of england is actually very tolerant, i am proud to be playing for my country and i love the people. Or even i love the natives. But nah would rather stick their fingers up and cry because some moron in a crowd shouted bad word. Not saying its acceptable either.

And so you shouldn't be, no need to envy someone who has lots of fiat based paper in their pocket. If the WEF have their way, their papers is meaningless.

Lot of talk in Tory papers about removing Doris, which wouldn't surprise me at all, served his purpose now.  Interesting if they do get rid of him who they will bring in next.

Boris Johnson faces '80 per cent chance of leadership challenge' after two knife-edge by-elections this month, with '67 Tory MPs' thought to have submitted no-confidence letters and some threatening a 'vote strike'

It makes no difference who's in the role. They're all tarred with the same brush and under the control of a hidden source. May they all meet the same fate they are trying to inflict on the public.

anyone think wales will roll over like scotland and let ukraine qualify for the world cup?

 

1-0 up at half-time, so who knows what will happen next.

 

Was this some 'predictive programming' from the BBC earlier today?

 

World Cup: Wales 'knows most of world against us' in Ukraine play-off

Quote

Wales' men's football team knows "most of the world will be against them" on Sunday as they host Ukraine for a place in the World Cup in Qatar.

Wales manager Robert Page said "most of the world want Ukraine to get through", in solidarity after Russia's invasion of Ukraine that has killed thousands.

Ukrainian refugees in the UK have been offered tickets to the game in Cardiff.

Wales hope to put 64 years of World Cup hurt behind them as they bid to qualify for their first finals since 1958.

The Football Association of Wales has invited the UK's Ukrainian ambassador to the match, while the Welsh government has given the visiting team and their delegates an official "warm Welsh welcome" in support to the people of Ukraine in the war with Russia.

From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-61582902

 

Quote

Wales' First Minister Mark Drakeford has sent a message of support to the Welsh team, but added this game was an "opportunity for us to reaffirm our support for Ukraine as it fights Russia's unprovoked and brutal act of war".

By letting them win? 🤔

 

War is war. Football is just a game.

 

"How dare plucky little Wales beat Ukraine in a game of football!"

 

How many of the Ukraine squad have been "called up to fight for their country"?

 

 

If Ukraine end up winning against Wales today, I'm tempted to have a bet on them winning the World Cup, anyone know what the odds are?

That's the only reason I would want him to stay? The spin is disturbing, and yet intriguing; maintaining the illusion that we have a choice, and that some 'rebels' are working on our behalf. While the thing he is accused of is the thing we never wanted to stop in the first place. There is one fall guy, and he's set for life.
