    Yeah it's really a tense match, lots of nervy errors and runs of points

    You're missing the point -- you don't watch the clowns for badminton, you watch them for laughs...

    Goh V Shem is poking the clowns to give us some laughs -- since the odds are against MAS, why not have a good laugh at the clowns while you're at it?

    Good example of a Viggo. I would have used The Lord of the Rings as example though :p

    VA's nickname is Viggo. I don't think it is nickname for the name Viktor or Victor in general though.

    Why am I being touched seeing Minions and Goh/Tan shaking hands after the match?

    I hope JPN won't regret their decision to rest Nishimoto and play Sakai for MS2 -- didn't they notice how badly Sakai played in the Group Stages vs how well Corvee played?

    Watanabe/Hiroyuki are vulnerable against Labar/Gicquel as well -- though Kanta Tsuneyama is probably more stable than Toma Popv....

    In a positive note, both pairs shaked hands after the match....Now you guys don't dare to add fuel to the fire

    But not really relevant to the situation of a half injured player in the Thomas/Uber Cup.

    DEN won the MD1. The KOR pair gave a persistently good fight in G2, but it wasn't enough.

    DEN 2 - KOR 0. Looks like the next semifinalist is decided ?

    NOOO, I want them to win and keep playing as long as Boe/ Mo -- and they only clown around when they win; when they lose and get serious then it's no fun any more!

    Before them, only Bodin Isara can create this kind of entertainment and make me want to follow his matches-- I REALLY really see the clowns as badminton CLOWNS (the way I watch Bodin Isara to see when he will start a fight with Niphitphon)!
