  1. Amazing result for the Clan last night, beat Cardiff 7-1. Best result all season, really looking forward to the playoffs now.

    Not so good result last night at home to Sheffield Steelers in losing 4-2. Definitely a few positives, but a largely disappointing and lethargic performance that saw the Steelers score twice in the second period relatively unchallenged. That effectively turned the game in Sheffield's favour.

    There was a bit of a stooshie afterwards by the Clan fans over the fact that they aren't allowed horns or, it seems, general noise into the arena when Steelers' support had their own instruments and made plenty of noise in comparison, including horns and other such items.

    Now Edinburgh come to Braehead on Saturday.


  2. I'm no fan of bus drivers, as the likes of capybara can testify from my posts in the past, but I was firmly on this guy's side after the barrage of abuse he took off some stupid bint yesterday, which was completely out of order.

    Said bint got on the bus when I was going home from work and had her child with her, who must have been about seven or eight at a guess. Anyway the bus is in transit and said child is running about generally annoying people and refusing to sit down, despite half-arsed attempts from mother request this.

    Anyway the bus pulls into the bus stop and let's someone on. The child is still moving around freely but the bus proceeds to start moving out of the bus stop. However the driver suddenly stops when he sees a couple of cars coming up alongside late so driver applies the brakes to prevent collision. A perfectly normal thing to do.

    In doing so, the child goes flying and lands in a heap on the floor and starts the screaming process. Driver pops his head out the cab, makes sure the kid's okay and is on his way. By this time the mother, finally, gets up off her arse and attends to her child, who suffered nothing more than a fright.

    So when the bus pulls into her stop, she starts calling him a "f****** idiot" among other things and telling him her child could have been severley hurt. The guy's basically getting the full 12 inch mix accompanied by expletives and abuse.

    As I witness this, I'm musing over how stupid the woman was in the first place for not even trying to get her kid to sit down on a moving bus then having the audacity to start blowing up at the driver as if it's his fault. I'm no parent myself, but is this the standard we're at now? If it is, I worry for future generations if this bitch is anything to go by.


  3. Here we go:

    DCI Gene Hunt (Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes)

    Roger the alien (American Dad)

    Jack Bauer (24)

    Alan Partridge (I'm Alan Partridge)

    Sylar (Heroes)

    following on from my last character, I must give a special mention to Hayden Panitierre, who plays Claire in Heroes for being arguably the finest looking actress to wear a cheerleader costume


  4. What the feck is this new layout all about?

    Anyway my PTTGOYN is being made to sympathise with Bernard Matthews stock on its way to the supermarket as I sat on a bus with frost on the inside of the windows. I asked the driver about the heating, only to be told to take to take it up with Customer Services. No attempt to rectify the situation. Just a polite f*** off.

    It's below human standard and I really don't think there's much to ask for in requesting a decent level of comfort and heat on your way to work.

    Needless to say I've taken the driver's advice and sent an email venting my unhappiness.

    There should be a thread called "Things that really piss you off" as opposed to "Petty Things" getting on your nerves.


  5. I'm only just posting this now because it still pisses me off.

    My PTTGOYN is quite simply: Jermain Defoe

    I had four bets on Sunday's game with Everton. I can't remember the odds but they were:

    Draw at half time/Spurs win at full time

    Defoe first scorer and Spurs 2-1 win (knackered after Cahill's equaliser I accept)

    Spurs to win out of four games on the celebrity bet (Fulham had already come up trumps)

    and a Fulham, Spurs and Roma treble at 8/1.

    Now Tim Cahill's equaliser done me out of one and I accept that, as I said, but that wee p***k Defoe's penalty was probably the worst I've ever seen and has cost me a three-figure sum. I hope he gets gout before the World Cup.

    :angry:
