I have won a place at the England football squad golf day tomorrow.

Expect it'll be 3 plus a player/coach in each group, hope I avoid T*rry. Will aim to bore whoever it is with talk of the Giro...

    Are you kind of a big deal then?

    Since this was a light hearted non pro-race thread I thought I'd use the opportunity to post this, which sort of made me smile. It's about Barry Bonds, surely the most obviously steroid enhanced Baseball player ever.

    A quote
    "The 47-year-old Major League Baseball home run king, looking especially lean at about 212 pounds (96 kilograms) from his new love for cycling, also spent a stint in the broadcast booth during San Francisco's 4-2 win over Arizona."

    Golf and football. I'd rather be at work.

    That sounds cool, make sure you give us a report.

    If you get Phil Jagielka tell him from me his goal against Leeds is the best one I've ever seen at Bramall Lane
    My Men 2020 - Mark Cavendish, Ben Swift, Fernando Gaviria, Alejandro Valverde, Edvald Boassen Hagen, Zdenek Stybar, Vincenzo Nibali, Geraint Thomas.

    Played with Jagielka & Phil Jones. Jones was a good lad and Jags is a top man.

    Was a really good day, v lucky to have experienced it. And I managed to avoid speaking to that tw*t John Terry.

    But did you tell him? ;)

    No, cos you poasted the message after I'd played golf.
    I might have mentioned it if i'd seen it - didn't talk about football at all (I love football but realise football ppl just have stock answers and never really give any insights).

    Jags was a top man and a decent-ish golfer (but putted awfully, borrowed clubs)
    Phil Jones is a kid, but was a decent lad.
    Roy Hodgson will never play Gerrard behind a front man, needs too much receiving ball with back to goal which isn't his strength.

    I won longest drive, took the prize from Joe Hart :)

    Best of all, I avoided speaking to John Terry
