Great stuff, bear.

For three months, I played a blinder. Backed Austria at up to 200, Netherlands up to 840, laid Armenia at 2.1, Norway at 3.55 etc.etc. Realised the marmite was enough for her to romp it, and backed her again after she sung.
Then laid her around 2.3 before the results came in, to leave me with a very disappointing green. Still, better than I usually manage on ESC, and I enjoyed watching her win. What a night for the fanboys!

Very true, fll, I normally have no fear of decent reds but, as Dirty Harry put it: `A man`s gotta know his limitations`. 9 years of trading this, with perhaps 2 or 3 winning years has taught me my limitations on ESC.

As already said, `bring on BB! I`ll be having numerous max reds there, I`m sure.

the heshe spoilt the contest for me and i knew "it" would phuck things up for me, so i totally ignored "it"...i backed Spain & Sweden in the final...however i decided to base most of my betting on the "top big5"...i could not see any of the other 4 beating Spain, got 5/1 with bvictor, my thanks to "bearcub" for posting that final rehearsal link for the UK, that really gave me the confidence to go for more...i backed Greece & Finland to win one semi, Belarus to qualify in the other...Azerbaijan top 10 was my only lay in the final.
i have to admit to not watching most of the performances (just my interests)as it would have been far too painful...this year the quality was pretty poor and the heshe spoilt the whole experience for me...i doubt i'll be back next year, they've gone too far now and to be honest the hall 99.9% full of screaming homosexuals made me feel quite billious at times.
all the best, you won't find me on any other "specials" threads because i don't watch the $h1t they put on tv anymore and now i can add eurovision to that list thanks to the "freak"...oh well back to the chapel of rest to beg forgiveness...bye-bye.
