Funny, I never think about dying whilst imbibing.  :)

Only the day after

Funnily enough the thought did cross my mind yesterday.  :o

Agreed, this division hasn't settled down at all. Im beginning to believe we mightn't get relegated after all.  :)
On another note: gamblers must steer well clear of the Championship?

Indeed it does. There's a big 'head in the sand' attitude to this  crime and its perpetrators.

Does anyone else look at the strength of the wine before buying?
The Black Stump (Aussie Shiraz) is 15% and lovely and smooth to drink.

Barley Wine is well drinkable.  ;D

What's your relationship with alcohol?

Love drink, but hate getting drunk!

I try to have bottles of whiskey, gin, rum, vodka and more at home. Rarely add a mixer, whiskey neat and add ice and maybe slice of lime to the others.
Tequila and cachaca are two I don't like straight. But I make Margaritas and Caipirinhas with them, and they're lovely.
While at the moment, scotch actually tops my list, I'm also fully into the gin craze and the wide array available. My favourite is Tanqueray 10, but I haven't tasted one I don't like! I'm very unusual in that I just can't understand how people can add tonic to these delights, which (for me) completely masks the individual taste of the gins.

I buy eight bottles of beer every Friday to do me for the weekend. Will never get more than 2 of any one variety. Love the range of craft beers available, but some days also would buy a bottle of Heineken or can of Guinness. Average home consumption of Friday 2 beers + 4 pub measure shorts, Saturday 4+4, Sunday 2+2.

When in the pub (about once a month) I'd never have more than 2 pints of the same thing. I might start with 2 Guinness, then move on to Hop House, then Heineken. But would never hit 10 pints, usually done at 6 or 7 if out with mates. 

I'd really find it difficult if I was told I had to give up alcohol. But I don't think it's because I'm dependant on it, it's  just I love it. And chocolate too!

I love it too. I've been at it now for over forty five years and if told to pack it in I don't don't kniw if I'd follow the advice.
I go to the pub every Saturday and Sunday and have six to eight pints on each visit.
The social side of it is a huge draw for me as it is for a large porportion of my generation.

High quality Roscommon final. Clann na nGael leading 1-9 to 1-7 at half time. Brigids the champions know they have a fight on their hands.
Really enjoyed that game. "Proper".

What planet's he on? Birmingham beat Leeds for their first win of the season and I can assure you we're no world-beater's.
Wolves last season were the best side I've seen in the Championship for a long time (you don't know how it grieves me to say this).

Savoy Milosevic, Robbie Cabbage and Leek Clark are amongst the early favourites. My personal choice would be  Special Agent Jasper Carrot.

Of course its overblown, but the format of it is superb.
The last day drama, when there are so many plates spinning and you're trying to work out where the points will land is gripping.
He's safe, he should hold on, might get a half there, he needs to pull it out of the bag, he needs a miracle, still need a point from somewhere. 20 minutes later it's all on its head.

And while an attachment to a Europe team isn't a natural affinity, as soon as you hear the hordes of fat assed, loud mouthed, oafs bellowing "U-S-A, U-S-A" you're on board!

I wonder if Donald will make it over?

Well that was a turn-up for the books but not totally unexpected as we've played very well this season but just haven't been able to score.
