Betting on EuropeGuardian Unlimited
The problem here is our parochialism. Britons will grudgingly admit Real Madrid is the world’s most talented football team, but will invariably ask, will the Spanish side ever win the premiership? Like the Eurovision song contest, the nation will not care unless the winner every week is British. Having a prize priced in euros that everyone wanted to win might also sound like a much-needed vote of confidence in Brussels. But many will be annoyed when big-number adverts used to pull in people are shrunk by the pound’s strength. The odds appear stacked against the idea. This might not put off Camelot, whose losing streak has seen fewer tickets sold.

Ryder Cup diary: FridayBBC News
Sergio Garcia may have opted for the sweet sounds of Spanish all-girl group Las Ketchup, the three Swedes may have chosen Abba, and Welshman Phillip Price could have gone for Tom Jones. But instead, the final decision rested with captain Sam Torrance. Avoiding the possibility of a Eurovision-inspired revolt he decided to keep it simple, choosing Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’ as the team’s anthem. He, somewhat bizzarely, explained the reasoning behind his decision at a media conference on Thursday, by saying the choice was an obvious one: “We’re all a bunch of queens,” he said. Just as long as they are kings come Sunday no European fans will worry. Mobile medicine

One of the more unusual booths in the vast tented village at The Belfry is that of the Medicine Man Pharmacy. James Powell takes his mobile chemist around many of the leading sporting events in the country.

Indie fever hits GothamVariety – Variety (subscription)
That’s when I got the Sundance Channel to put up finishing funds. “The same thing happened with Zenovich’s next doc, “Who Is Bernard Tapie?,” which she unveiled at the No Borders section of the market in 1999. But Zenovich, whose latest doc, “Estonia Dreams of Eurovision!,” airs on the Sundance Channel today, has a message of caution and patience to fellow filmmakers. “It’s not just about this week,” she said. “It’s about beginning a network. The market, just like going to a festival, is where you could meet people who in the future could have some connection to your projects and your career. “One filmmaker with high hopes at this year’s market is Robert Maass, who is unveiling 20 minutes of his doc “Big Apple Fishing,” a work-in-progress that centers on the odd characters who fish along the Hudson River and other New York waterways.

When all that glitters really is goldIrish Independent
“) She’s a silver-tongued smoothie but also a loveable, good-humoured girl who’s full of unconventional insights into the human condition. We discussed everything that counts in life love, sport, kissing, pop music, the Euro vision Song contest, the importance of treating everyone with respect, the joy of friend ships. We are both Eurovision fans (Lisa: “It’s my biggest show of every year”). We both loved Rock’n’Roll Kids (Lisa: “That’s my favourite”). Hell, we are Rock’n’Roll kids. Lisa loves Westlife and Robbie Williams. I love Shakira and Blue.

ITC appoint Northern Ireland Media Officer4RFV

So get ready for Blair Witch Project on The Belfry’s first teeIrish Independent
Still we won the anthems by a dog-licence. They have only one and we had at least six (including a manically upbeat Amhran na BhFiann) plus the Ode to Joy. All we lacked was last year’s Latvian winner of the Eurovision. One wonders what the anti-Nice crowd makes of it all. One also wonders what the anti-God shower in RTE made of it all. One certainly understood why this Godful event could not be shown live on terrestrial TV. It was God, religion and Bjorn Again all the way.

Are you too fed up with the same old songs?Irish Independent
Yes, the GAA have taken giant steps forward with their magnificent new millennium surroundings on Jones’ Road, but they are still giving us an entertainments package about half a century out of date. While the Artane Boys’ Band will always have a place on the big day, there are several key areas where the GAA could endear itself greatly to the young people by not majoring on the ‘Celtic Mist’ side of their repertoire. How many old-fashioned renditions of the Rose of Tralee and The Boys from the County of Armagh, On the One Road and The Star of the County Down must a fan have to listen to? Riverdance was born out of the interval of a Eurovision gig in Dublin – the potential for a more modern musical interpretation would enhance the Association as a group trying to entice rather than turn off the young who after all, are the people they want in their ranks. In television land, the talking heads could say their piece rather more quickly and leave a nice ten minute slot for a new production. It works for the Americans at Superbowl, so why not here as well? Kieran McGeeney was a magnificent leader for Armagh all year and not just during the game. Afterwards, he was a rock of sense as he got the stewards to open the gates and amid the euphoria, soberly warned the throngs that he didn’t want anyone getting hurt on their great day. Here are some other observations from All Ireland Final day IT was nice to see Gerry Adams become an orange man for the day.

    First, you’d have to move out of the country (if you’re in the US) because its illegal. I have a friend who set up an online betting site and lives in Costa Rica.
