2 rinks of four we beat backkworth by 11 shots but had a bad game against North Shields west end
Honestly some of their wicks were shocking and when their skip went wick wick I told him I was going to chin him.
If he said that again
Finished level with backkworth but lost overall on shots. Don't mind tho they're canny lads..
Anyhoo 7 SCRUFFY DUFF

Played the first four when I was younger and ran track through high school (middle distances). Now a round of golf is the best I can do. I do, however, walk the 18 holes. Motorized carts are for chumps and American presidents.

Oops. that's redundant.

well you asked.

Rugby League, Cricket and Rugby Union get played to a high standard by about 2% of the world yet get competitions called world cups. Snooker World Championship until recently was basically the home countries and a couple of commonwealth countries.

Well, you would be wrong. :)

The last non-USA team to win the World Series was the Toronto Blue Jays. Currently nearly 30% of all players on Major League rosters are from outside the United States, with 18 different non-American nations represented. This year's World Baseball Classic (baseball's version of the World Cup) featured teams from 32 different countries.
