Who won what, Saturday 22nd May. United Kingdom, nil points.

Tikay10Tikay10 Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 104,459

Morning.

26 countries reached the finals of Eurovision, & when it came to the voting, the United Kingdom scored zero points - not ONE vote for us. I never watched or heard it, but music choice is so subjective, it's seems highly improbable that our song could be so bad. It was the 2nd time in a row we have finished stone last. At least 25 other countries voted, & not one of them - either Jury or Public - gave us a single point. This is about much more than a cheesy song contest - how & why did the UK become so unpopular with our neighbours?

Anyway, on to brighter things. More great sport today, with World Superbikes, the Monaco F1 GP, the final day of the regular Premier League football season, Indy 500 qualifying, & of course best of all, the PGA Golf. Something for everyone there, surely?

Returning to F1 for a moment, we never want to see a driver injured, but as F1 has become so boring & predictable - especially at Monaco, where overtaking is near impossible - I do find it rather pleasing to see how F1 cars look after a prang, they really do break apart in a visually spectacular way.

On to poker now. Last night's MTT traffic? Don't ask. Not great, but better than the UK Eurovision entry.

PS - today's thread will be rather brief due to time constraints. I'm sure you'll cope.

    bigfatfish took this, then blanked the rest of the regular schedule, before switching to £10 Turbo DYM's, at which he did rather well.

    2nd was BeachBody, who won Friday's Turbo & has been doing impressively well of late.

    My my, two wins in 24 hours for waz8888, who took down Friday's Mega then upped the stakes last night & won the Main.

    M10Dembele had 2nd-itis, but even so had a very successful session. 2nd in the Main, 2nd in Sheriff & 2nd in Reload sounds profitable to me, & he's certainly versatile.

    £1,500 Reload Rebuy B/Hunter (£1,884)



    He might be Arrogant but he's not proud, & Arrogant had no issues with entering & winning the £3 Reload. It was to be the first of 2 victories, as he also won Quickdraw.

    M10Dembele completed his hat-trick of runner-up spots, & RogueCell, who is approaching her 20,000th game on Sky Poker, was 3rd.

    We end our musical Rogues Gallery Week today, having already headlined these 6 dreadfully over-rated acts;


    Morrisey/The Smiths

    Bruce Springsteen

    Elvis Costello

    Nirvana

    U2

    Madonna





    We have saved the worst to last though. How anyone, anywhere, ever, thought these guys had talent is one of life's great mysteries. I give you the pile of talentless ignorant insolence that is Oasis.

    After a rocky start where you were wrong with two out of the first three you managed to turn it around and were correct with three out of the last four. So overall four out of seven correct, which is a pass, IMO.

    A hard disagree on Oasis!
  • TVSpiceTVSpice Member Posts: 639
    @Tikay10 Dismissing as over-rated U2 and Oasis???? I normally agree with your take on most things but on this occasion you will not persuade me!

    On a more convivial note, will you be pulling for Phil, Brooks or Louis? Personally before he disappears into the sunset, I would like Phil to get one more.

    @TVSpice

    Sadly, we have to disagree again. Anyone but Phil. None of the the are particular favourites of mine, but of the three, I think Brooks would be my favoured one. He has a gammy knee, & dropped 2 shots at the very first hole on Day 1. Great physical & mental strength to get himself back in contention.

    As I write this, the fans are back in Anfield & we are getting a full on, real live YNWA. It's extremely emotional, I'm welling up here.
