    Commonwealth Games Glasgow 2014

    So is anybody bothered with this?

    Currently watching the womens triathlon.

    Will pass the next week and a half I guess.

    The only thing I've heard about it so far is that people were annoyed that Franz Ferdinand did not play at the opening ceremony.

    I'll watch some of it, but I mean watching Australia play The Smurfs in a game of field hockey isn't exactly compelling television. Nor are swimming heats. I'll pretty much like watching any event when a Gold Medal is on offer. This triathlon has been good, I actually hope the Kiwi gets a medal since she's fought back to the lead group.

    I've got some cash on Stimpson. Has she been to jail or something?

    Wow, changed quickly. My stream on comp froze as I had cycling on tv. Refreshed and the Aussie was miles back.

    I always enjoy the Commonwealth Games. Fantastic that in Malaysia they have 4 channels dedicated to it. Amazing really as they have ambitions to win only 7 medals.

    Can't believe Scotland won 10 medals yesterday. Aim for the whole Games was 33 I think, either they will smash that or they packed the schedule to get off to a great start.

    Aussies should top the medals table as they will do well in swimming which has a ridiculous amount of medals available. Guess England will do well in gymnastics though and have done well in judo so far, already guaranteed a gold in that today with both finalists later.

    Watching the triathlon relay at the moment. Really want to care, but all I can think is "it's not the Olympics".

    Would love to see football in the Commonwealth Games. Not like the Commonwealth is short of footballing nations; Australia, Cameroon, Nigeria & us all made the last WC and NZ, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, RSA and even yer Sweaties have made it relatively recently.

    Could make it U23 a la the Olympics.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
