Murray loves grass. I don't mean smoking it, I mean playing on it. He also had an easier semi than Djokovic, and will be less tired.PKMKII wrote:Murray and Djokovic to face off in Wimbledon final. Rematch of the 2012 U.S. Open and the 2013 Australian Open. Djokovic's 11-7 lifetime against Murray, but Murray won their only match on grass.
WADA recently amended its rules on cannabis, raising the threshold for a positive test from 15 nanograms per milliliter to 150 ng/ml. In 1998 at the Nagano Games, Rebagliati recorded a level of 17.8 ng/ml, and argued the test resulted from second-hand smoke, which he still says. Ben Nichols, a spokesperson for WADA, said the raising of the threshold is meant to catch only athletes who smoke during the period of a competition. The drug isn't prohibited out of competition.

(b) The Set Position. Set Position shall be indicated by the pitcher when he stands
facing the batter with his pivot foot in contact with, and his other foot in front of,
the pitcher’s plate, holding the ball in both hands in front of his body and coming to
a complete stop. From such Set Position he may deliver the ball to the batter, throw
to a base or step backward off the pitcher’s plate with his pivot foot.
(e) If the pitcher removes his pivot foot from contact with the pitcher’s plate by step-
ping backward with that foot, he thereby becomes an infielder and if he makes a
wild throw from that position, it shall be considered the same as a wild throw by
any other infielder.
Rule 8.01(e) Comment: The pitcher, while off the rubber, may throw to any base. If he
makes a wild throw, such throw is the throw of an infielder and what follows is governed by the rules
covering a ball thrown by a fielder.

I was fairly pleased because Scotland didn't get thumped like the under-21s did last night (6-0).
