    My opinion is all I have to offer here,

        Hi Abby,

        I felt physically sick just before the penalties were taken but I'm so glad I braved it and carried on watching!

        I'm always giggling at the names of sportsmen. I turned to my long-suffering better half during the match last night and told him that Stones had a sister in the crowd - name of Cherry.

        And a cousin called Kidney.

        But my favourite giggling-inducing name has to be the Russian cyclist, Vladimir Karpets.

        Love,

        Caz

          Apparently retired now but if he makes a comeback you'll be seeing headlines like "Karpets fitter."

            They might be less unbearable if your lot stayed up your end of the island instead of coming down in your droves to be politicians or football team managers.

                  lol. hi Caz

                  in the states "stones" is slang for balls, cajones. as in bravery. "Hes got major stones going after that big guy."


                  I had a friend in college who was a scrapper, not afraid of anyone, and his nickname was stones.


                  every time the announcer said his name it cracked me up.


                  its just such a cool funny name. "Stones". hahahah

                    Same as Welsh - "cerrig" (stones) is slang for balls. The polite word is "ceilliau", which shares a linguistic ancestor with "cojones".

                      What about Scottish Ripperoligsts having a jaunt down to Whitechapel?

                      Can we still do that?

                        I watched the game, then when it went to extra time I said "sod it, I can be late for once" but at the end of overtime I had to leave for work and I missed the penalties

                          My wife used to giggle whenever the announcer said "and Jokic has the ball"

                            Nothing worse than a dose of jock-itch, if you ask me.
