What Really Grinds My Gears 5

Post a pic definitely, I have 32 BMX bikes from the 80's - a whole room in my house is just BMX I have that many.

Haro Masters, GT Pro Freestyle Tours, Dyno Pro Compes, Skyway Tuffs, Odyssey Gyro's, Moon Discs - got the lot. We were heavily influenced here by the US at the time so bikes like Raleigh burners weren't that big.

Kinda feel for anyone who missed the 80's.

Posted the pic the nostalgia thread.:) Raleigh was certainly much bigger where i was from.

I could do a few good tricks on my BMX by the end :)

And then i found other things and it went in to the shed forgotten :cry:

Was at the bog in the city today and some bloke broken the golden urinal rule...around 8 urinals, just me and a fella down the other end and some  bloke walks in and uses the piss pot right next to me! 

You just don't do that when a toilet is quiet, at least one free urinal between you!

When I woke up , ridiculously early as it turned out, it was quite calm.

Now the wind is picking up again.

Another typically WINDY August day ahead. :xmad:

I know a few people from Yorkshire and they looove windy days. Say it's invigorating.

I should maybe try harder to feel that way....but so far it hasn't happened.

I can only tolerate August winds because they signal the end of Winter, and Summer ultimately coming back.

 

But then again, Summers are now so ferocious, I don't get so excited to see them return these days. :sad:

So, you're no doubt looking forward with unrivalled delight to 4pm on the 2nd of February at Central Coast Stadium.

Ah - you've checked have you?

Before the game, I'll probably be wishing I was sitting on the other side of the stadium. But most likely, I'll be doing what I usually do - as discussed a while back...and doing what Smoggy Jnr does - retreating further and further up the stand...into the empty boxes, to escape from the Sun. :D

Until there is nowhere else to retreat to. :unsure:

 

Hopefully this season, the games are so spectacular, that none of us will mind enduring heat stroke.

:):)

Don't worry, I hear Emmanuel Petit will be there. You can use the heat as an excuse for swooning when you see him.

Today reminded me of an early March day in Yorkshire. In Jan and Feb you can get weeks on end of foggy, drizzly dank weather and go days without seeing the sun, mild winter weather often goes with rain and cloud.

Then in early March you can get a cold northerly wind, which clears away the cloud and you get a bright sunny day with amazing visibility, the hills often have snow on top and new lambs already in the fields, just a hint of warmth in the sun out of the wind. Daffodils are pushing up and nature starting to wake up in general. So you rug up and get out in it and it is very nice, had that kind of vibe today.

I can see why you'd like it...but here, it's horrible - to me.

I'm the same as you.

As uncomfortable as the wind was today, I love days like this.

Young Wanderboy had an 11 am kick off  today for his under 17's match. It was cold and breezy. It was easy to tell that it was snowing on the Blue Mountains, which it was. He then put his hand up to fill in for an All Age match at 1 PM whose team was short of players. It got colder as the day went on, although the sun provided a somewhat pleasant warmth. His 17's Div 1 team (who are coming last) were playing the other Baulko team who are coming 2nd. They had an admirable 2-2 draw, after leading 2-1 at HT.

He then handled himself really well against the adults in the AA game.

I really couldn't think of anything better on a cold winters day then sitting there for 4-ish hours watching him play. The bacon and egg roll at Ted Horward Reserve at Baulko between matches was the icing on the cake. 

This probably should be in the WFMB thread instead tbh.

And yes Smoggy, those photos were beautiful.

That all sounds great... as long as you had a good view of all the action from inside the car (parked in the Sun). :D

Haha.

Nope. Braved the Sydney level cold out in the elements. It's not really that cold tbh, well, not Boro cold anyway. :)

PS. I was freezing, with the hoody pulled over the head. Still, enjoyable though. I'm sad the season is over. I love watching winter football.

PS 2. I also love sitting in the stand or standing in the concourse at Gosford vs Mariners in mid summer heat at a Wanderers away game, inhaling the toxic fumes of a few smokies. Life is beautiful.

Since we are talking weather & football. Wind has to be the least favorite of conditions when refereeing. Raining is fine as long as you are moving (let’s be honest, games are called off at the first drop of rain) & cool temperatures are great.

When you add (1)The wind just blows through you especially if the game is poor & you’re not doing much running. Hands go numb, the wind just seems to cut so deep & you freeze up so much quicker than usual (2) The wind usually makes for an average game, just the ball making it havoc in the air (goal keepers kicking nearly leading to goals today :rolleyes:) (3) Wind burn, lips (4) You don’t seem to sweat as much but you’re definitely losing fluids, so much harder to top up than if it was a hot day

I don’t think we can complain too much, hardly had many bad weekends this year. So many where the sun is beaming, clear skies & temperatures moderate. Was so deceptive as my early games (8am were dead, by the time I finished juniors at 11 it definitely started & at 1300 it was in full effect.
