I sincerely hope so!
I haven’t been this excited about sport since 2012
I’m so happy about the state of women’s sport
(I’m not even a sports fan)

Right
I’m shutting up shop for the evening, but if anyone registers their interest, it will be first come first served.
Draw will resume after midnight (by me, not DH. I’m not a monster!)

😂 at the rustling.
Happy with that as my grandad was Spanish 🇪🇸

FannyCornforth Thu 20-Jul-23 10:57:48

I need more takers!
I’ve got loads of teams left! 😣

If this carries on I’ll have to just allocate them to posters - whether they want one or not!

Siope Thu 20-Jul-23 11:08:19

You could set a deadline, and if there aren’t enough takers, give those who’ve opted in second teams.

And watch our heads spin if anyone’s two teams play each other.

Bridie22 Thu 20-Jul-23 11:15:35

Please can I have a team 🙂
