Caught some UFC on the boozer telly last night.  Particularly gruesome choke out at 3:16.
I'm up $25 on DGuller.

Froome is tested positive for having too much astma medicine in his blood and will likely be stripped of his 2017 Vuelta win.

No Froome in the Tour means opportunities  :shifty:

All bikers are doped, it's better to just assume that by default.

The victory is quickly being named the biggest Danish sport result since EC '92. I'd say since Riis '96. But this is damn big.  :worthy:

Given Riis was doped up in 1996, I'd give it to Wozniacki.

At any rate it's been rather slow on the big victories if you discount handball and badminton. Handball is out because it sucks and badminton seems to only be popular in Denmark and certain Asian countries.

It's only shit when we lose  :mad:

Futsal is awesome. Small-court fast-paced version of football. Every Spanish kid grows up playing that.

If they shrank the field enough you could land a shot from anywhere, that might actually make soccer exciting.   :hmm:

A thought. How come the winter Olympics largely just features dull snow and ice related sports.
Surely gymnastics, martial arts and other indoor stuff is equally valid in winter as summer? :hmm:

Essentially it's football played in a basketball court. It was invented because most schools didn't have a football pitch available (too big and expensive) so kids ended up playing football in the basketball court.

My neighborhood growing up didn't have a public football pitch so we usually took over the basketball pitch and played football instead.  :P

Because you know nothing of history of the modern Olympics.
