Love this map, great fun trying out the sounds.... for those wanting to play, I'd suggest a south london accent ( and know that Ł is a W sound in polish)
|the phrase "under par"|
at 10:20 8 Apr 2022
There's a headline on the BBC Sport website
"Woods under par on 'electric' Masters return"
Got me thinking... isn't it a bit weird that feeling under par is bad... whereas being under par in golf is good.
And given that Woods has been injured, I therefore had no idea if he'd played well, or didn't feel good!
There's some friday b****ks for you all to ruminate on.

Essex started well - having been put in - 149-0.... perhaps england should look at their openers ;-)
Middlesex claim first century of the season, with Steve Eskinazi... first ever FC fifty for Josh De Caires ( son of former england captain Mike Atherton), perhaps another potential england opener, in a couple of years...

Looks like its got a little bit of variable bounce in it though.
Good start from england though ( in that they've not lost a wicket in the first 30 minutes)
If they can survive the first hour, puts us in a decent position.
|Prostate Cancer Charity Fundraising|
at 12:26 10 Mar 2022
I know I'm just a virtual member of this community, and haven't met any of you, that I'm aware of in person, but I thought I would share my current fundraising activities, as I've seen the generosity of spirit that is in so many of the members of this forum.
About 10 years ago, my father was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Initially, as for many men, it was just monitored, but about 5 years ago, it grew, to the point that it needed intervention. He undertook a new procedure (high frequency ultrasound therapy), which put him into remission, and he's been being monitored ever since. Signs were good until last summer, when his regular tests showed up an anomaly, and he went back for further scans. Unfortunately, the cancer was back, and this time was more aggressive. He's been given a treatment plan, which involves hormone therapy for a year, and radiotherapy, which is a daily trip to the hospital for approximately 3 months. I live too far away from him to be able to provide regular practical support, so whilst he is doing his treatments, I took it upon myself to fundraise for Prostate Cancer UK.
I'm doing one challenge a month for a year. So far I've completed December ( run 5k every day), January ( no booze), February ( daily burpee challenge). March's challenge is the Liverpool Half marathon, and April, I'm doing a 100 mile bike ride across the width of wales.
I'm very tired... training for these has been going on in conjunction with burpees etc.
If anyone has a few spare pennies, then please can I beg for some support:
And whether you can sponsor me or not, its also worth highlighting this - which is a Prostate Cancer UK risk checker... it takes 30 seconds, and could save your life. So please, if you do nothing else, take the time to do this.

Other than the obvious ( we won, we're playing good football etc.)
We keep talking about how its ridiculous how "all the playoff teams keep winning", but its worth remembering where we have come from.
When KMc took over ( after the sunderland game). We were 10 points, plus games in hand off the playoffs.
Since then, we have taken:
10points, plus a game in hand off Sunderland
11points, plus a game in hand off Wycombe
7 points, less 2 games in hand off Plymouth
4 points, plus a game in hand off Oxford
6 points, less a game in hand off Sheff Weds
9 points, less a game in hand off Portsmouth
14 points, less a game in hand off Accrington
the only team in the playoff race that we've lost ground to is MK Dons, and actually, all they've done really is won their games in hand.
Teams are dropping points, its just been a bit unfortunate, that the ones that were furthest away, are the ones that have dropped most. On the plus side. Sunderland and Wycombe are really not in great form.
Its definitely still on.

Overs and balls before England lose their first wicket.

Quality second half performance.
And even in the first we didn't really concede good chances.

Their run in is ridiculous... and will no doubt have a big impact on the promotion race... they've also got Rotherham and Bolton before then...

Sorry folks... I've booked a ticket for Morecambe.
( my record this year is p3 w0, d1, l2 - Accrington, Wigan, Bolton).
So don't get your hopes up, those that were planning on travelling.

I'm in Poland with work ;-) so thought I'd buy a match pass. All good, but now all I seem to be able to get is the audio. Is this something about a UK based account?
