ah superb stuff. Enhanced betting on paddypower facebook site. 5/1 that portugal and germany would win. stuck a tenner on and happy to be taking £60 winnings! :)

Still got my tenner on germany to win euro 2012 at 6/1. And they're looking efficient, if not good, for it!

Rugby is ok on the telly or if you are actually playing but i find it rather dull to watch in a stadium as there is so much stop/start all the time.
Y.N.W.A.

Hehe. I watch the internationals on telly (union). Sometimes watch a bit of league too. Again, not into it massively but do like watching 6 nations, world cup etc.

Watched the England game last night. Cracker! Me and a few mates have a Whatsapp group going and there was much 'chat' going on during the match! Especially as one of my mates is a Swede.

I really enjoy going to see Worcester its only a small stadium, 12,024....Every one is mixed in and we do take the piss out of each other whilst drinking beer. :D

Never been too fussed about the stop start.. beats the hell out of watching some Nancy boy rolling around on the floor because he might have got hurt in the tackle..
Yeah!

yeah, but north american ice hockey is probably the only game in the world where you're allowed to punch an opposent, and only get a 2 min sin bin for it!

Who'd have thunk it? Italy eh? Caught most of the second half after work at work. Then went home and heard on the radio that the Nadal match was still playing but by the time I'd got in it had just finished...

He is in Murray's half of the draw to so he has a very good shot at reaching the final this year.
