Most Non-Track&Field Site to Which You've Posted?

Postby EPelle » Tue Dec 13, 2005 11:06 am

Watching the final two minutes of a Dr. Phil syndicate program on Channel 5 here, getting ready for whatever comes on at 20.00. Dr. Phil said that the message boards keep going on long after the show is over.

Never thought about there being a Dr. Phil message board, but, why not?

What are some of the message boards you have posted on which are the farthest thing from track & field (and/or sports in general) which one can go?

(I know some of you frequent cooking sites) ;-)

I've never posted on Board but this one. With my addictive personality, I shudder to think of eating up any more time on foolishness!

Two and a half other boards, intermittently.

Florida HS soccer board - in season, several (4-6) times a week.
Florida HS T&F board - in season, several (4-6) times a week.
Becca's PV site - once in a blue moon.

T&FN board - priceless :D

None, apart from IAAF and letsrun. Gave up on IAAF about 6 months ago because it's pretty pathetic and probably average one every 2-4 months on letsrun when I feel the urge to be rude to someone :)

First I am shocked you get Dr. Phil in Sweden...why I don't know but I am!
Do you get Oprah too? :?

Cooking sites are only for those with a strong stomach. :P

We get most everything which is popular in USA.

From Saturday:s Göteborgs-Posten listings, this is what I know is on my basic cable tv here (not regular tv - which consists of SVT1, SVT2 and TV4 - but not extended cable, either):

"24"
Dr. Phil
Oprah
Frasier
CSI
CSI Miami
CSI NY
Friends
ER
Just Shoot Me
Will & Grace
Dharma & Greg
That 70:s Show
Simpsons
Late Night With David Letterman
Law & Order Special Victims Unit
Law & Order Criminal Intent
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

There must be much more... I am too cheap (and have no time) to watch much tv... two, three programs a week.

Those with Canal+ Sport get live NHL, NBA, MLB games from USA.

I make occasional postings to our local Bicycle Club's board. Even rarer, on letsrun to offer specific factual info. I waste enough time on this one !

Too bad hitchhiking has become such a lost art. I used to like both hitching rides and picking people up (carefully).

when I was 12 to 15 my parents let me hitchhike all over central Connecticut. If a parent permitted that today, Social Services would be gunning for him.

Yeah, every 18-year-old should be required to hitch the CA coastline from SF to SD. Talk about crazy freak shows. No one can say they've lived until they've done it.

I used to post on a few graphic design forums, thinking it's pretty distanced from T&F message boards.... until I bumped into Weldon Johnson on one of them.

It's a small world.

The IAAF is pretty good when there is a big event like the worlds or Olympics.
I am also a member of the BBC forum, Paula Radcliffe and kelly Holmes's messageboards as well as athletics weekly.

And I would always use takeoff as one word and refer to the guck as plasticine, not plastic. Tweren't me.

(Having said that, I did ATTEMPT to make a post to the IAAF board once about a year ago but couldn't get registered properly so gave up)

Yes, it is too bad. In the early to mid 70's I hitchhiked all the time all over the country. It was a great experience and also a fast way to get around. I even hitchhiked from Eugene to Pullman, and back, once in '76.
