    Default Hahaha...good one

    Guessed old Rob (the Ump) had problems. He should have brought his eyeglasses along. Just kidding Rob (I know you don't frequent the forum but just in case)

    Rob O will be the Referee for the upcoming World Junior Championships in Richmond later next month.

    He and his wife were the Canadian Masters XD Champions last year but unfortunately they were not able to defend their title this year.

    the probability of having a pair of identical twin is 0.3%. what is the probability that two pairs of identical twins happens to play badminton and meet up in the same international tournament?

    pretty darn low, i think.

    There were a pair of identical twins playing in the tournament I was at last weekend, they never exploited it to the max though, they always wore different t-shirts

    that is really funny. i can tell rulan and rulien apart. i think the color of their hair right now is the biggest difference. do you think that identical twins would ever play a singles match for each other? like, one of them is so tired so she tells her sister to cover for her? ha. i'm sure you could get in big trouble for that.

    Maybe next time the twins should play tricks with the umpire without getting caught.

    I guess it won't help with their initials or first letter of their fist name and the full last name. Becasue they are the same...can't win either way...That's cool..
