    Hmmmm, that’s more a regional pronunciation or a class group pronunciation thing I suspect. Nearly everyone in SA would say carsell, Vics cassell, except if they are posh.

    Matthews and Kruijswijk out too.

    Case numbers in Italy are approaching what they were in the spring

    Great ranting there, Mr Classo.

    Channel 7 and AFL - Daisy is awesome, knows the game but doesn't talk a heap of crap like the other former players.
    Bruce - could he ask any more rhetorical questions?
    BT - never been very bright, so we shouldn't expect anything better of him now.
    The bright light there is that Razor Ray got canned for the remaining games, which only seems fair since a key role of a central umpire is actually bouncing the ball straight (without getting started on his running commentary - TURN HIS FUCKING MIC OFF!

    Good thing Matthews has COVID, at least that's a reasonable excuse for not being close in any of the stages so far.

    Beautiful Eion. What a gorgeous little spot.

    That feature in the background of the earlier shots looks like a pyramid.

    Tell me... do you know what bird of prey was in the air (at about the 2:40 mark)?

    They’re a local sea eagle, methinks. The pyramiddy things are old volcanoes.

    Fuck, they blew up the old dredgers today in the Morwell Open Cut.

    That would explain that loud noise and the house shaking this morning. I thought it was someone starting a shitty old motorbike or ride on mower, but that didn’t explain the house shake or the fact there were no shitty old motor bikes or ride on mowers around.

    If I'm not racing, will it get me in trouble?

    Next up, the ghost of Marco Pantani speaks of his life as a cycling randonneur with some professionals in Europe.

    Ackermann's DQ. Bullshit or fair?

    I can see that he deviated from his line but the poor bastard he decked was never, ever, going to progress and never did it seem malicious.

    Should the rule include a mention to forward momentum of both riders?

    Surprisingly, yes it could. Being serious for a moment, EPO results in increased blood viscosity as a consequence of the increased haematocrit so the consequences are potentially fatal.

    Doctor's advice: stick with beer (and I don't even like the stuff! I'm a cider drinker)

    I found another chonky boi on the front lawn today. He flattened himself out to intimidate me, just before he waddled off into the garden...

    Bloody hell!
    I got to climb up and go in the cabin of one of those dredgers back in my mid teens - while it was digging in the open cut - and chat to the driver/pilot/operator. Fark they were massive, and pretty awesome to see in action from right up close. I can still remember how much it shook and vibrated.
    My old man knew one of the site managers (or some similar position) at the time & we got a personal all access tour of the mine which was ace! Back in the days before security clearances or any Worksafe regs got in the way haha
