Re: Eurovision 2019

What a fiasco the voting on this year's Eurovision has turned into. Two jurors gave thier result's in reverse in the two semi-finals, had they voted correctly the results of both semi finals would have chaged. In the first semi final Poland would have qualified instead of Denmark. In the second semi...

Hoping my score will improve this coming Saturday at "Bedlam"
Where is Bedlam?
Bethel Royal Hospital (parkrun) - has potential I think

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

An update to where our runners figure in the Most Events category, (position in brackets is from 20JAN19) Soup Dragon is now included and Das is the biggest riser up from 1419 to 1212. Andi would be slightly higher, had his result at East Brighton not been messed up. 90 (104) Andi 138 (143) Going Un...

...which is 14 points, x2 for a time ending in 5. 28 < 51. Hence, no improvement.
Exactly :D
So unless you beat 51 in the next two weeks, then that will be your best score of the round.

Re: Eurovision 2019

Semi Final #2 is tonight on BBC4 at 20:00 This semi is slightly easier to call, I'm fairly certain the top 5 in my list will qualify, but I cannot see any 100% non-qualifiers. Although I have Ireland and Moldova in the last two spots I wouldn't be surprised to see either of them qualify. 1. Netherl...

Re: Eurovision 2019

As BBC Four fell off the air just after the results of Semi Final One came in (can't the BBC do anything right about Eurovision this year? First they give us 3 horrible songs to pick, then Sophie Ellis-Bextor gets sacked from the jury...) Personally I quite liked "Freaks" by Jordan Clarke and thoug...

Re: Eurovision 2019

The First Semi Final is 20:00 tonight on BBC4. This is a really hard semi final to call. of the 17 songs there is only 1 that I'm 100% certain won't qualify, that is Montenegro. Of the other 16 I'm only 100% on three qualifiers. Here are my predicted finishing places (Tonight we will only know who q...
