 Report by Colm Harrington

Sarsfields 7-17 Ros Glas 0-9

Sarsfields recorded a facile win in the intermediate league on thursday night as they outscored Rosglas 7:17 to 0:09 in Sarsfields Park.

On top of their direct marker in every position and first to every ball, the writing was on the wall after 15 minutes as Sars had moved into a 0:07 to 0:02 lead despite playing against a fresh breeze. 2 Goals in two minutes signalled the end of the game as a contest. At half-time the sash led by 3:09 to 0:02. The expected backlash never materialised in the second half as Sarsfields romped home seemingly scoring at will at times. Everything seemed to go wrong for the monasterevin men on the night and they were short a lot of players due to football commitments but the failed to match the appetite for the fray of the home team and payed a heavy price.

Odd/Strange/Bizarre Story’s

 

ELYRIA, Ohio - Police in northeast Ohio say they're looking
for thieves who stole a wheelchair ramp from a woman's home,
and a local business is offering to replace it with a free
upgrade.

Thirty-four-year-old Cordelia Simpson says she discovered
Thursday morning that someone had stolen the 10-foot wooden
ramp leading from the porch to the sidewalk at her rental
home in Elyria (eh-LEER'-ee-uh).

Simpson suffers from bone deterioration and weakness in her
legs. She can walk short distances but uses an electric
wheelchair for longer ones.

John Wright of American Ramp Services in North Olmsted said
Saturday that he would replace the stolen ramp with a $4,000
steel one. He says he couldn't stand the thought of Simpson
being confined to her house over Memorial Day weekend.

True Story allegedly 

 

 

Dave, a driver, tells the story of when he was driving a bus load pensioners to Brighton, on a day trip, when he was tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady. She offered him a handful of peanuts, which he happily took and ate. After a US bout 20 minutes, she tapped him on his shoulder again and she handed him another handful of peanuts. The old dear repeated this generous gesture several more times. When she is about to hand him another batch again he decided to ask the little old lady, 'Why don't you and your friends eat the peanuts yourself?',

'We can't chew them because we've no teeth', she answered.  
Dave was puzzled and enquired, 'Then why on earth do you buy them?',

'Oh, we just love the chocolate around them,' replied the old lady.

 

True Story 2

Murder Most Fowl.

 

Even a chicken, which has for months avoided
becoming road kill on a Johannesburg intersection, can't
escape the crime-ridden city's crooks.

Under a front-page headline 'Murder most fowl,' The Star
newspaper lamented the demise of the 'plucky black hen' as a
cruel reflection of society in South Africa, one of the
world's most violent and crime-ridden countries.

The semi-wild chicken had dodged intersection traffic for
months, but was lured across the road to her death by a
trail of breadcrumbs laid out by a friendly traffic-light
newspaper seller. But it was trap!

The newspaper seller was being held at knifepoint by two
hungry crooks intent on a chicken meal.

'The streetwise chicken met her match,' said The Star.

 

Only In America

 

Woman wants to be World’s Fattest.

A mother of two is waging a campaign to become the world's heaviest living woman.

Donna Simpson, 42, from New Jersey, weighs more than 42 stone and aims to reach 71 stone - or 1,000lbs, reports the Daily Telegraph.

She has her own website which gives fans the chance to pay to watch her eat greasy food or walk to the car.

'The bigger your butt is, the bigger belly you have, the sexier you are,' she said.

Miss Simpson spends as much as £516 a week on groceries, suffers from diabetes and struggles with basic tasks such as cooking and taking a shower.

But she dismisses critics who warn that her weight can lead to health problems: 'I'm very healthy. I go to the doctor every three months,' she said.

Miss Simpson has found a man who says he appreciates her size, and they plan to marry in Hawaii this year.

Her fiance, Philippe Gouamba, 49, the father of her three-year-old daughter, says he finds her attractive and is one of her biggest supporters.

'You look at her curves and see her full belly and generous hips,' he said. 'It's very sexy.'

A Guinness World Records spokesman said Miss Simpson has submitted a claim for the title of world's heaviest woman to give birth, a claim that is being reviewed.

Fishy Tale

Mrs Baker wanted to go ice fishing. She had read several books on the subject, and finally, after getting all the necessary equipment together, she made her way out onto the ice.
After positioning her comfy stool, she started to make a circular cut in the ice.

Frighteningly, from up above, a voice boomed, 'There are no fish under the ice.' Startled, Mrs Baker moved farther down the ice, poured herself a large coffee, and began to cut yet another hole.
Again, from the heavens, the voice bellowed, 'There are no fish under the ice.' Mrs Baker, now became very concerned so she moved way down to the opposite end of the ice, set up her stool, and began again to cut her ice-hole.

The voice rang out once more, 'There are no fish under the ice.'  Mrs Baker, stopped, looked upwards and said, 'Is that you, Lord?'
The voice replied, 'No, this is the Ice-Rink Manager.'
