    2014 season

    Starts tonight! So who do we like to go all the way? Haven't done much research yet, so my only bets thus far are Jacksonville to win five or more games and Carolina to win eight or fewer. And who's off to Wembley? I'm going to the Oakland/Miami game later this month and Atlanta/Detroit games...

    2010 season

    So who is backing who for the NFL this season? Colts, Packers and Saints all vying for favouritism, with the Chargers, Cowboys and Ravens all nipping at their heels. I've not yet had any bets on the outrights (I'm leaning towards Green Bay and/or Rodgers for the MVP) but have had the following...

    At last the truth about where the money came from

    After some careful research I am in a position to reveal the incredible story about where the money came from and how, only through incompetance, we failed to procure more than four times that sum which could have been used either to start the new stadium or invest in new players. It's an...

Ideas as follows: Zombie Nation DJ Otzy - Hey baby Put your hands up for Detroit Thanks for the memories (freddy Eastwood) Da da da da Stop....Hammer...

    Why Americans Should Never Travel

    Taken from another site: I had someone ask for an aisle seats so that his or her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, "Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take...

  13. The NHL Thread.....

    Following on from ESB's NBA thread which has sparked off a lively debate, are there any other NHL fans out there? I have Canadian ancestry and lived there for 5 years so I had no choice but to love the game, and I am delighted to see the Montreal Canadiens topping the Eastern Conference with...

    One to Start the Weekend (week 9)

    As Dave's on holiday I've been made caretaker manager of his "One to Start the Weekend" slot. First thing I thought when browsing YouTube for some classic tunage was "how on earth does he pick just one song each week?", so as the cat's away I'm going to spoil you with "Three to Start the...

    The Cheltenham thread......

    Ah the perfect opportunity to lose all your well-earned. I'll kick off the proceedings by tipping the Irish trained Sublimity to win today's feature race, the Champion Hurdle. This is more by process of elimination than anything, but I just can't contemplate the favourite Detroit City winning...

    Ricky Byrne

    The most obscure link anyone's ever posted on SZ? Ricky Byrne came on at half time for the ROI U17's 2-1 Third place playoff defeat for Slovakia. Apart from that, there's nothing more in the story about his performance.
