    Same here. Right now.

    Have fun there! Take some photos!

    Although it kinda sucks for Rangers fans...losing McCulloch and McGregor + Naismith and Burke?!

    Hey, I normally snap a quick pic on my phone before the stadium fills up (mostly just European night..I've got a season tickets so it'd be alot of pics :shock:

    Yeah, It's getting progressively worse. I don't want a season like Celtics back in '03 where they reached the final but won nothing else (admittedly we've already got the CIS Cup final (what a game to be at though! The atmosphere during the penalties and afterwards was immense) into the Scottish Cup final, 1 point down with 3 games in hand in the league..It's looking great (If you don't factor in the injuries and the fact that Cuellar got Red carded so will miss the next old firm game this weekend-think "Hand of God" but this time preventing a goal :). Also out for the Fiorentina match is Ferguson (El Capitano) and Kevin Thomson. Argh!! Makes me nervous thinking about it!

    Very true. Another trivia: you can take marshroutka into the city for less than a euro, if you don't mind sharing the ride.:)

    This is one of the pics from my phone. I also have some video's of Boyd's winning penalty in the cup final (and the singing afterwards!) trophy presentation etc.

    Ternary? :? There are ten types of people in this world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    Ternary, what's that, base 3? Or just 0, 1 and 2?

    That's base 3. 0, 1, 2, 10, 11, 12, 20, 21, 22, 100, 101, 102, 110, 111, 112, etc...

    You can't write "ten" for that joke because "ten" is the base ten numeral for the number 10. This is why you can't really say this joke out loud. It can really only be written.

    Awesome! I understand some too, but still learning. The better I get at binary, the more fun life becomes every day. “I need – I don’t need; turn left – turn right; drink beer – drink water”. Binary sounds easy, but takes me time to learn properly for some reason. Hmm… maybe too much beer…? Or not enough?;)

    Did you know (maybe it's already on here) that, since we've been taking these polls and gathering this information, George W. Bush has the record for the HIGHEST and the LOWEST approval rating for an American president?

    I think a monkey that threw feces at foreign dignitaries could've received the HIGHEST if he/she were president at the same time, as it happened right after 9/11/01.

    0-0...didn't watch the match, just checked the score, was it good?

    Rickson is actually spelt Ricksen. The first name is Fernando.

    Hey, The match was ok, The seats I had were amazing though! (I'll post a pic later..10ft from the players and about 100ft (tops) from the Fiorentina fans.
    What about Ricksen? The ole' no.2 and legend (in my mind) at ibrox! Once spoke to him on the phone and he promised me that he would "win the champs. league" for me.


    Needless to say....I'm still waiting.

    Yip....that winning football is sooo boring isn't it :roll:
    Mate, Hibs and Hearts footie is utter balls. You can't honestly tell me their play is better than that Old Firm on Saturday....Do yourself and your country a favour. Support a team who's helping to make a name for Scottish football.

    I know that, hearts are shocking. And yes, Rangers' winning football is sooo boring, you are right(unlike my winning football in fifa, except when I play Fena:oops:). You can't expect play to be better from other teams in the spl as Rangers and Celtic are a country mile better than any other Scottish team, its like Shaktar Donetsk and Dinamo Kiev in Ukraine. Do myself a favour and support Scottish football, I do, but its so boring, Celtic are quite exciting but overall Scottish football is absolutely awful. Do my country a favour, that doesnt make any sense, you want me to support Celtic or Rangers because they are doing Scottish football good, the world hates glory hunters.

    ^^^ Great.

    Yesterday I fell hard while backpedalling to get an overhead, then trying to turn to chase it !
    The base of the thumb is paining on pressure -- don't know if it's a pinched nerve or what. Hopefully, not a hairline frac.

    Sheesh...sorry to hear that my friend. You never realize how much you actually use a digit until you hurt it:cry:
    Hope it's not a fracture.....that would suck big time

    ^^ Luckily not. The pain is light when pressed. Actually, I played today too. Don't feel it at all while holding racket. Must be a pinched nerve or something that will just pass (like all things). Thanks for the wishes.

    Imagine what all this worthy thread will be buried under when Rome and Hamburg start -- All that horrifying Pro Match Results hate-ridden sludge !

    btw, postcountitis is a serious disease.

    Yes, and we must do all we can to help erase this silent killer.
    I did the Race For The Cure of Postcountitis,
    helped underwrite the Auction to Benefit Postcountits,
    gave to the Center for Postcountitis Research and
    every year I play singles, dubs and mixed in the tournament for the United Postcount College Fund.

    It's just a drop in the bucket but I know we're making strides, and that's what keeps us going.

    LOL , both posts above ... excellent.

    I do catch the bug now and then, when it's doing the rounds. Worse than mono, let me say, going by patient count.
