Who holds the record for lockouts
I used to have all these wild fantasies of living peacefully in a commune surrounded by lots of able and willing females in China.
I could spend all my happy days, planting my seed, and reaping the fruits of my hard labour.
Even have my own Red United football team, then the bubble burst and i woke up as I couldn't find any women and that was damn scary.
Though we must be honest with ourselves no matter which political party get in, we adapt, and we adapt, and we adapt, it's never ending
I'm really thinking of supporting someone, just for a laugh. Seriously!
Eau2011:Unfortunately I have to tell you those professional sportsmen are financed by the Chinese tax payers. They do nothing but train to get the gold medals, that's their occupation. Chinese people critisied this a lot during Olympic game in 2008.
In other countries those sportsmen are amateur, e.g. I was once in Prague, the door man in the hotel has attended the Olympic game in 2008.
Another example is German Dmocratic republic in Olympic games from 1972 to 1988, they've won the most gold medals cause they put much time and money to train these sportsmen.
The most gold medals don't mean average Chinese are good at sport.
1. Yes I am well aware of the investment, though the aim of the game is to win medals, How do you think America does it?
2. Many UK people cannot afford the training without financial support.
3. There was also a little sarcasm on my part as most gold medal winners are raised on steroids, fact.
However Singapore is desperate to take potenial medal winners
It's all about politics and financial power.
I was once in Prague, the door man in the hotel has attended (competed you mean) the Olympic game in 2008.
Sport is all about time and money my dear, the only thing that worries me is that they start training in China as soon as they can walk. Some parents in other Countries would have it the same way. Sport is a vital part of the ego.
Nothing worse for an Englishman, than losing at football .... Well done the Rugby team!!! What a win over France! It's home and dry almost.
