What would a Frankie Dettori Yankee have paid out today?

Trying to watch a game in a pub in peace, and someone who will literally not shut the f**k up about every little thing that happens

Not to be awkward or anything, but why would you want to watch a game "in peace" by going to the pub? Is it not part of the experience to have other people shouting and roaring with you at the screen?

Yet you can't understand proper use of an answer to a multifaceted question such as "Yes or No"?

Is Eamonn a weird cat? Yes, and No.

Way too early to speculate given there's a summer of transfers to occur, but here goes.....

I don't think there's any way Liverpool will match the points total of last year, but high 80s, maybe 90 is doable.

So need City to regress a bit to give us a chance of winning the league. To put 2 back-to-back league seasons together like they have is incredible. Losing Kompany will be a big dent, and I've an inkling that Sergio will move on (clearly doesn't get on with Pep), and he'd be a huge loss. Although no doubt they'll spend big again and add some new names.

Assuming Chelsea lose Hazard, then I think United are best placed for 3rd. Although I'm very unsure about Solksjaer.

I think if any of the top 6 get their hands on Declan Rice it would improve them hugely.

Think it's already official - revealed by RM last week.

Hard to see much change at the top. With Chelsea losing hazard I think it makes the battle for 3rd and 4th a little more open.

The comment about Jean Shorts being acceptable.

Rory just clobbered a spectator in the teef with his ball. Looks a little painful. And a little shaken up.

Cue Missed Cut, or win.

People who like cats.
Vegans.

And often times they'll feed their cat a vegan diet. A cat.

Individually they are some of the nicest people I've ever known. Generous and thoughtful.

As a religion they are no crazier than the catholics or other christian sects. It's just funny that they wear special underwear.

Squash is all the buzz in Spain

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48348431

A squash championship in northern Spain has sparked a debate about sexism in sport after female participants were awarded a vibrator, wax and a kit to remove foot calluses.

The top women players of the Asturias championship wrote to the local squash federation to complain about the incident.

It prompted resignations at the club that organised the event.

Contest winner Elisabet Sadů told the BBC that "things have to change".

Ms Sadů was awarded a trophy and a vibrator for getting the top spot in the competition.

The women in second, third and fourth places won an electronic foot file or hair removal wax.

"We were very surprised, very shocked. We think it's very sexist," Ms Sadů said.

How much sexism do women in rugby face?
Why politics is toxic for Australiaís women
"We wanted to explain it to everybody because we think... there's a lot of discrimination... [against women in sport] and things have to change."

The women sent the prizes to the local squash federation along with a letter of complaint. The federation has helped them to take action.

Soho is for me one of the most complete songs on the list - but I love most of them. It has a nice cadence, melody, and story. Never fails to make me stop and listen.

Honorable mention for Nancy Spain.

I don't even think that there's a chance. He seems very square if anything. Bubba is flirting with some CBD companies but with so much on the line if you end up testing positive for THC due to a poorly refined CBD product you'd be fecked with the Tour doping/drugs policy. Marijuana is still (unfortunately and ridiculously) a schedule I drug.

Honestly the CBD craze still hasn't convinced me yet. I've used it for a little joint pain as has my mum when shes over here but I am not sure if its placebo or real.

I think the original question suggested he was taking something for his physicality. Compared to the traditional golf build, the guy is a beast - but compared to many young American men his age he isn't big at all. The Americans start lifting weights in high school, which was pretty much unheard of when I was in school in Ireland. Big build is a large part of their psyche over here and while many meatheads use steroids to achieve ridiculous sizes - this fella is just a big lad who is very well built.

Is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling Koepka is taking something?

It's just you. Unless you want to present some rational explanation or even a shred of evidence?
