What are SpoFites' favorite books?

The Damned Utd, by David Peace, a fictional, but minutely researched stream of consciousness account of the great Brian Cloughs 40 days at Leeds Utd, is destined to become a classic. Train by Peter Dexter is utterly brilliant, and, non sporting, Steve Hamilton writes highly readable thrillers with an ex baseball catcher as hero.

UK Events

Well it has nothing to do with achievement, because the man who has put on the single best sporting performance of the year doesn't even make the list.

World Cup question

I say, fourth metatarsal, old chap, I didn't quite catch what you said, would you be kind enough to repeat it?

Editing Posts

These people are harsh, make a typo, get a fact wrong, or post a pile of old cobblers having taken a drink or three, and it is there for posterity. Cruel, cruel, cruel

SpoFi CD Swap Round Two.

I can't remember who didn't contribute last time, perhaps they should fess up. I'm in anyway.

Where's the premierleague.com SpoFi Fantasy update?

I had a goodish week but then immediately spoiled it with 3 transfers. It could have been better, but this was the week I chose to take the captaincy off Lampard, who would have got me twenty points and gave it to Pires who got me one. 3 of my bloody players didn't start but came on as late subs while my first sub, who didn't get on, scored loads. I feel like chucking a bowl of soup over someone, moanastrone maybe.

Gmail invites and new CD swap?

Someone deafed me out too, but I forget who. I'm in anyway, provided nobody comes up with any daft proposals. 6 g mails to give away to anyone who wants em.

SpoFi CD Swap Update

I feel bad now, a CD arrived this morning, and bloody good it is too, although there is no indication of what the songs or the bands are. I know T Rex, Brendan Benson and Butch Hancock are involved, but the rest? Who knows. Bill, I appreciate your offer, but I haven't the faintest idea what you are on about!

Can I be in rocketmans group next time? In fact, can I be in anyones group that sends a chuffer out?

SpoFi CD Swap Update

Well, it would be nice to have a chuffin CD to comment upon!

Nerds, I need your help. I can't visit Spofi with Mozilla Firefox. (more inside)

I am afraid I cannot help you, old chap, but I have no problem getting in here with Firefox, which suggests something quirky is happening. I still miss the little buttons though!

Where's me colon gone?

I am au fait with some basic html, old chap, but I WANT A BUTTON !

Where's me colon gone?

Well, since I stuck Firefox on the pc I can longer post links, so the problem has sort of solved itself.

Someone has removed it!

Where's me colon gone?

Hah, I didn't put that colon there; it was visible on preview, but I thought it would disappear, like the others, but it didn't. So now I look like a berk on two pages. Ta.

Euro 2004

I spent my honeymoon on Lesbos, one of the best Greek islands I have visited. Talking of lesbians, Ronaldo has just scored for Portugal.

It's a gift

The Observer sports monthly is free, and most of it is online, but not the pictures. I would happily pay for it, if I had to.

Not long ago the FHM website had hundreds of pictures of Danish girls snogging one another. Just thought I'd mention it.

May I just add my thanks to Ufez for organising it. I don't mind a tape.

SpoFi CD Swap!

Bill, the beauty and the pity of it is that you have no clue what you are getting, if anything. It's a great big adventure.

posted by Fat Buddha at 03:08 AM on June 16

Hahaha Kwacky, preview is your friend.

SpoFi CD Swap!

I am deeply ashamed to confess that I haven't purchased a CD for some time, however, if people will accept CDs made entirely from downloaded stuff, I will participate. Should people who have requested G mail accounts then ignored the invite be included?

posted by Fat Buddha at 12:45 PM on June 15

Is it just me that can't tell the difference?

posted by Fat Buddha at 12:39 PM on June 15

I now have 2 brand spanking new invites and the 2 as previously mentioned.

posted by Fat Buddha at 11:20 AM on June 15

What a bunch of chuffing show offs!

posted by Fat Buddha at 02:58 AM on June 15

Well if anyone wants to give it a whirl, it's no skin off my nose. I may or may not have one invite should anybody want it. Then again I may not, in which case blame Squealy.

posted by Fat Buddha at 03:29 PM on June 14

I have wasted 2, one to someone who hasn't taken it up and one to a non existent e mail account. I have asked the gmail overlords if I can have em back, if I get them Spofi members get first dibs.

posted by Fat Buddha at 12:22 PM on June 14

Man, I hate paypal, many, many scary e mails. That Amazon link is marvelous. If I buy something from there via here, does that help? If so can you fix it so it works from Amazon UK as well?

You wait, dear boy, you wait.

Dusted, I just sent you an invite but your e mail account doesn't seem to be working.

I have never had more than two back from a mefiswap, but I reckon there is a better class of person at spofi.

posted by Fat Buddha at 05:09 AM on June 12

oliver-crunk that looks like an ace collection. Perhaps we should start a spofiswap

posted by Fat Buddha at 04:17 PM on June 11

First off, I have to continue my stalking of Squealy and once again thank him for his kindness to a stranger. As a result of thanking him on ask mefi one of the invites I assume I will get has gone, which leaves one more, probably. Second, Oliver_Crunk, whats this chuffin Austin City Limits, why I have not heard of it?

Does Jersey Girl count? I can just about stomach women getting into football, but I don't believe they really like it; I can just about get my head around Yanks liking football, but a yank woman? that's a step too far. Absolutely no offence intended against jerseygirl, who is clearly one of the good guys. As it were.
