Messages - Ball Hopper

Can anyone tell me if Clifford fouls the ball here?

He takes possession and hops the ball. After the hop he flicks it up in the air and catches it before it bounces. I would have thought this would be similar to handpassing the ball over someone's head and catching it.

Never took possession after the first (only) hop?

His mind appears at a different level, foul or not, though.

Munster Minor Final:  Kerry 3-14 Cork 2-14.    Kerry beat Cork by 16 points in the round robin portion of the championship, so the Rebels improved a good bit and found a better side. 

Quarter Final line-up has Munster v Ulster sometime near the end of July.  Kerry play the losers of Monaghan/Tyrone, with Cork playing the winners.

We'll make a point of having next year's Christy Ring game between the two run to more pages than this one...

Need to book something for my wife's 40th next January preferably a citybreak around that time. It's not usually a time of year we'd head away has anyone any ideas of what to do??

Was thinking New York maybe but I'm thinking January wouldn't be the best time. All recommendations welcome.

PS. Not winter sun would rather be doing something.

New York on the run-up to Christmas is a very good time to visit.

Galway lost once and are out of the championship

Limerick and Cork have lost twice and are still in the championship.

The positions in the Leinster championship table were basically decided on who ran up the biggest score against Carlow.

Clare beat Cork by 5 points in the championship meaning Clare are out and Cork are in.

Not true...if you take the Carlow games out of consideration the order would be the exact same.  All on 3 points, Kilkenny top with scoring difference of +4, Wexford second +0, Dublin third on -1 and Galway fourth at -3.

Even though the results are the same, wouldn't it be fairer to make a mini-league of the teams that are level where only the games between the three or more involved are considered?

Toronto Raptors win the NBA title in Game 6. 

Warriors lost Klay Thompson to a knee injury early in the third quarter - he had 30 points when he left.  Coupled with the unavailable Durant, it was just too much to overcome.

Kawhi Leonard immense for Toronto.

Anyone watching Stanley cup game 7 ? Exciting stuff

St Louis Blues are the oldest NHL team without a Stanley cup win. Up 2-0 at the moment.

Blues win game 7 on a 4-1 scoreline.  Hard to believe they were dead last on 3 January...some run since then.
players must be shattered playoffs started early April they are some tough men

Playoff NHL hockey is about as intense as sports can get.  Every team seems to have a chance - getting the hot goalie from April on is one of the main keys to success.

I considered opening up a new topic for this post but with this topic at the top of the page I decided there was no need.

Messi, Ronaldo and and Neymar are the three highest paid footballers in the world. 2 of the 3 Ronaldo and Neymar have rape acusations pending against them??? That is all. Discuss

So there's something wrong with Messi?
