From the the queen.

Just confirms that tennis is a sport the "knobs" look upon as one of theirs.

    Yeah. It's not like a British tour winner would ever get knighted.

    Didn't get a personal message from Liz. Not that I really give a censored , I'm a republican.

    On the ladder of sporting achievement Wiggo's win shades (if not knocks winning Wimbledon) into a cocked hat. But cycling is a working class sport and the head of British cycling isn't prince Michael of Kent.

    She's probably afraid to congratulate Wayne Rooney on his achievements as he might take it as an invitation for sex.

    Seriously though, I'd be more disturbed by personal congrats to Wiggins rather than not...I'm ok with royalty not understanding or caring for cycling, it reassures me that I'm doing something right in this world.

    The Queen mentioned Wiggo in her talk about the olympic games.

    I said to Her Majesty, 'Look Your Maj ( She allows me to be familiar) we have all got this Murray fella wrong. Apparently he is not dour at all, he just pretends to be. I know this is true because someone on BR said so. In reality, he is known for his dazzling wit and sparkling repartee. Perhaps if you curry favour with him, he will help you with your dreary Christmas speech. If he won't write it, perhaps he could give you a few of his famous one liners or let you have a few of his jokes. You never know, perhaps a funny Christmas speech would help to bring the folks from The People's Democratic Republic of Hucknall onside, and they would recognise you as being their Liege and Big Ears as your heir?'
    God Save The Queen!

    I know you did, Sean, but I couldn't resist a little jest.
    If I had sent the message it would not have been along the lines of 'We are/are not amused'.
    It would have been,'We are totally indifferent'.
    I share Mattc59's interest in tennis, and I too enjoyed a siesta after along ride rather than watch the tennis.

    You're right. It really is a misnomer.

    Credit where credits due.

    We chose to immerse ourselves in a different sport but that doesn't take anything away from the hours and hours of practice, fitness work and motivation it has taken him to win the biggest target in his chosen sport and also in the life path he has chosen.

    Personally I thought Murray was going to get his censored kicked in the final considering Dojvik (I can never spell the bloody name) demolished every opponent during the 2 week tournament not losing a single set. Hats off to Murray he performed at his best when it counted most.

    Now back to a proper sport ....

    Dude - we never, ever want to hear you describe yourself as "normal" - to us all here at BR you are definitely very special.

    I don't get the chip on the shoulder about this.

    Footy is hardly a posh nobs sport but if England win the World Cup they'll sure as hell get messages from Queeny. Plus tennis is a shed load cheaper than cycling, just buy a racket and a few balls then head down the local municipal courts.

    They may get messages from Queeny but they won't be able to read them .......

    You can't ride a tennis racket to school/work though.

    My wife gets around on a big but slightly worn looking tennis racket just fine - oh hang on, that's a broomstick...

    They seem to be very common amongst married women. I want to get one of those bumper stickers for her car that says 'My other car is a broomstick'.

    Constructive divorce? :wink:
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    Watching ITV yesterday morning before work and they had a survey that 2 in 5 married woman had had an affair and 2 in 5 would leave said husband if financial security could be guaranteed.

    Quite scary that whilst almost half of us here are reading this thread, the wife's are in fact lying under younger or better versions of us :)
