that would be a whole lot more exciting than the actual result, which you could see coming from a mile away
In dog obedience competitions you get a rosette (and often prizes) down to 6th. place). When you ask somebody afterwards how they have done (and they've come in the top six) they'll excitedly tell you that they came 5th. or whatever, and wave their rosette at you.After the tennis yesterday, the BBC just kept going on about how Murray had lost.For feck's sake, a Scotsman has come second in a major tennis competition. We should all be breaking open the best malt and singing "Scotland the Brave," today, not feeling depressed because the lad lost against possibly the greatest tennis player ever.That's the trouble with the world, nowadays. A good runner up place is considered to be worth no more than losing 3-0 in the first round. And as for the taking part - there's no longer any joy in that because the only thing that matters is coming first.
MP - well, absolutely. Tennis has always been a bit like that, though.You make dog obedience trials sound loads of fun.
Did he pop out of anybody's stomach?
Yes, Kj. He emerged from Tim Henman's stomach a couple of years back.
That would go a long way towards explaining why Tim Henman lost so many matches, if he was carrying Andy Murray around in his stomach.
Yes it would, Cathy. That and the fact that he was crap.
That and the fact that he was crapLOL! (yet again)
