Doh, I just found a bug in my Excel spreadsheet. I think the correct number of posts last month for me was 368, not 435.

Just thought I'd mention this, before our residual stats geek Luis comes up with this correction.

well, that is the nature of sport. every bidy can't play.they have to wait and enjoy.
10. ### satyaModerator

Soccer is probably one of the least attractive sports to me.
..oh then join the boat...I hate people here talking about that lousy game.

But I always love to watch any sport(cricket, golf, tennis etc.) that is contended on a world championship basis, good to get some quality though.

100% agree with Satya!!!

Come on now, admit it: any sport can be boring. It's not the sport, it's the way that it's played.

We go by parts, said Jack (Argentina joke, about Jack the ripper).<br /><br />Was in 1986 no in 1996[:I].<br /><br />About game: I use to play soccer and is a wonderfull game.<br />I other side, I never play beisball, but I undertand all the game and to me, is a beatyfull game. Same thing with golf.<br /><br />Now I play tennis, and is great too. <br /><br />Last one, at leat this post was usefull to know more about members outside of SQL[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-4.gif' alt='' />].<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Luis Martin<br />Moderator<br />SQL-Server-Performance.com<br /><br /><font size="1">One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important<br />Bertrand Russell<br /></font id="size1"><br /><br /><font size="1">All postings are provided â€œAS ISâ€ with no warranties for accuracy.</font id="size1"><br /><br /><br /><br />

I feel any sport you play is a great provision to relax from stress (work related [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt='' />]) than sitting like a potato couch.<br /><br /><hr noshade size="1"><b>Satya SKJ</b><br />Moderator<br /<a target="_blank" href=http://www.SQL-Server-Performance.Com/forum>http://www.SQL-Server-Performance.Com/forum</a><br /><center><font color="teal"><font size="1">This posting is provided â€œAS ISâ€ with no rights for the sake of <i>knowledge sharing.</i></font id="size1"></font id="teal"></center>

The only sports I engage in are cryptic crossword puzzles and sudoku. Plus one I won't mention.
17. ### ranjitjainNew Member

I'll vote for Brasil for 2006.
They are favourite for championship from bookies point of view too.
Anyways i think we should watch any game for realaxation and should not take personally.
Just enjoy the game, if we dont see the game, damn, then they are not gonna play.
I think they play as we like to see them run after ball like hairs.
18. ### ranjitjainNew Member

Hey Luis,
What your statistics say about current ASHES series between England & Australia.
Who is on the cards??????

I think no one in Argentina will play cricket, other than watching it in TV.

Only in Soccer and Hockey can a 0-0 scoreless tie be so exciting!!

I appeciate the sport, but can only watch it when I am interested in the teams, just like any other sport.

I think even England can be a strong contender as the way they have played in warm up matches and this time they are evenly poised by playing with their full strength.
Beckham ofcourse will give full backing.
30. ### satyaModerator

England [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt='' />].. no chance I bet it will be Brazil or Portugal or Germany<br /><br /><hr noshade size="1"><b>Satya SKJ</b><br />Microsoft SQL Server MVP<br />Contributing Editor & Forums Moderator<br /<a target="_blank" href=http://www.SQL-Server-Performance.Com>http://www.SQL-Server-Performance.Com</a><br /><center><font color="teal"><font size="1">This posting is provided Ã¯Â¿Â½AS ISÃ¯Â¿Â½ with no rights for the sake of <i>knowledge sharing.</i></font id="size1"></font id="teal"></center>
