The chattybox - anything EXCEPT football

I think mainly its for people that like doing daft challenges. The US definitely has a culture where lots of restaurants, diners etc. have food challenges involving ridiculously hot chicken wings, burgers and even sushi.

Usually if you beat the challenge you win a t-shirt, photo on their wall of fame or something.

Although some people just have asbestos mouths and stomachs and genuinely like eating super-hot stuff.

 

Used to love this show...and not just because of Adam's suffering...

 

Have you heard of/ever watched Hot Ones? Youtube show where guests have to answer questions while eating wings coated in progressively hotter sauces on the Scoville scale. Started out with barely heard of hip hop artists and got so popular that it now regularly features A-Listers like Paul Rudd, Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, etc. They even (after a LOT of fans pestering them) got Gordon Ramsay on the show!

It's brilliant and addictive, and the questions aren't your usual celebrity interview questions, they really do their research.

A public apology to @TeaCider24 A little while ago, during the Rotherham match, I made a comment essentially in reply to TeaCider24.  The comment, full of sarcasm as so many of my posts are, impl

With perfect timing, this just appeared in my twitter timeline.

We can hug but avoid face to face contact 🤷‍♂️  Think I’ve found a solution buddy

Yeah I've seen a few episodes of that...including the Gordon Ramsay one. That one was hilarious...he really doesn't like spicy food! Also saw the ones with Chris Jericho and Adam Richman.

I was actually tempted to buy a set of sauces, just to try them. The milder ones sound really nice.

my late wife used to love it too, came across as a decent fella, no "look at me, aren't I great". Remember a few where they showed him failing challenges, so never sure of outcome. She was from California and said that a lot of restaurants used the challenges for publicity when starting out as competition so fierce that you had to be "different" in some way.

Congrats to Emma Raducanu - the new US Open champion.

Did anyone else catch the final last night?

 

I can't claim to be an avid tennis watcher...usually get my annual fix by watching Wimbledon. But that was some of the best tennis I've ever seen - either men's or women's. Some amazing rallies and outrageous winners.

Raducanu is the first British female US winner since Virginia Wade. The youngest in around 30 years and the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam in history.

Fair play to her opponent - Fernandez did not make it easy for her. It was a hard fought, back and forth match. I have a feeling these two will be fierce rivals for many years to come.

Yes I did Marcus initially out of interest as to how she was doing but stayed with it right to the end.

Very well done and high time a British competitor did not cave into the pressure of the event, handled the nerves so well!

Her life and fortunes have changed overnight

I watched bits of it including the final 3 games of the second set. 
Really pleased for her especially after what happened in Wimbledon. 
I’ve always preferred women’s tennis as you get longer/better rally’s and it’s not just the serve and return of the men’s game.

Indeed. I think she earned something like $500,000 just for reaching the final, then picked up a winner's cheque worth $2.5m. 😮🤑

The flip side of that being she is now a celebrity and is going to have to put up with intense media scrutiny. Still, if she can handle that like she handles the pressure of playing in big matches, she should be okay.

Perhaps we can all go out at 7pm and do a Boycie laugh in the road.

Sad news, that.

I am physically unable to do a Boycie impression with saying the name “Marlene”

Delighted to see AJ got absolutely battered by Usyk, I've been saying  for weeks that he was severely underestimating his opponent YET AGAIN.

He's never going to fight Fury (probably a good thing, Fury would murder him!)

Joshua has always reminded me a bit of Frank Bruno (without the personality)..  good puncher but not quite complete as a boxer. Hopefully this defeat can lead to a bit of progress in the division as it seems to have really stagnated in last few years. If/when Fury beats Wilder, a match with Usyk would be intriguing, but hopefully it would not take as long to sort as most fights seem to now as I can't believe that lengthy periods without a fight are good for anybody in that sport

Watched the fight last night and was amazed at how passive Joshua was. Took him 3 rounds to realise he was in a fight.

Usyk more or less bossed it from start to finish. AJ had 2-3 good rounds where he looked like he might get back in it, but Usyk just kept coming back. Almost had AJ on the canvas in the final round. Definitely a worthy winner. 

Hearn said Joshua needed to make "fundamental changes" for the rematch. I'd suggest he starts by actually throwing some punches early on.

AJ seems to box like an Olympian, looking to score points. Usyk boxed like someone trying to win belts. He got in Joshua's face from the start, looking to hurt him and eventually going for the KO.

AJ has nearly all the tools...the size, the physique and the technique. He just lacks the mentality, that ruthless streak pro boxers need.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
