    Irish Thread

    Only realistic chance of a medal is in show jumping (Jessica Curtin) I reckon. Let us hope the horse isn't on drugs again this time round

    Stephen, you do realise that Jessica Kurten is currently challenging a positive drug test against her horse, and because of that her participation isn't exactly guarranteed
    Quotes from The US Office:

    Dwight Schrute: In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, "Ow, I hurt my leg. I can't run. A lion eats me and I'm dead." Well, I'm not dead. I'm the lion, you're dead.


    Michael Scott: [trying to motivate an employee for the basketball game] You'll be like the dwarf that follows the wizard to the end of the earth in... uh... Lord of the Rings!
    Dwight Schrute: Gimli.
    Michael Scott: ...NERD. That's why you're not on the team.

    An Irish boxer got through to the next round, he won by something like 19 points.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    A good day by our standards. Our first male swimmer in 100 years to reach a semi-final (Bree) and we had Eoin Rheinisch going so close to winning a medal in today's Olympic Kayak K1 Slalom final. Finshed 4th beat into that position by the last guy to run
