The equestrian part of the modern pentathlon can be a lottery as riders draw lots for horses with some picking the non-jumping kind.

Wasn't it though! Fucking awesome, and he can go quicker than that too!

Anyone else been perving over Jessica Ennis this weekend? There is just something about her that is rARRR! Well done to her for her gold, brilliant effort. :D

Yeah, I did! Was class. However, the OT goal-win thing is a bit unfair. I wanted to see Mighty Duck penalties!

Reminded me of when I went to see the Manchester Storms when I was about 10. ^___^

Yeah penalties would have been fun but that OT goal was brilliant. Crosby is supposed to be world class.

Bit of a bump, but interesting development I suppose.

Gay running 9.83 and beating Usain Bolt in the process. Granted Bolt isn't 100%, but food for thought.
