2021 marks the 25th anniversary of @TheSun's 'Top 100 Hunks of 1996' supplement, which I've discovered in an old box. I can't resist a countdown, so let's see how tastes have changed, and what's become of some of the "hunks" a quarter of a century later... (thread 👇)
100. GARRY BUSHELL
Bizarrely, perhaps more as a joke than anything serious, The Sun's own TV critic "and late night telly megastar" starts us off. #GarryBushell ImageImage
99. MARK OWEN
Blue-eyed #TakeThat singer Mark was the lowest placed member of the boy band back in 1996 (unless you count #RobbieWilliams, who unexpectedly doesn't make the top 100 at all). #MarkOwen ImageImage

Nobody asked for it, but here is my very dull take on the proposed groundshare with London Broncos. If nothing else it has highlighted the continuing problem with the existing Dons Trust constitution.

I am no expert on these issues so I apologise for any incorrect assumptions below. Those more involved with the DT may have a more insightful (and accurate) view.

Is the DTB obliged to take a members vote to decide on a groundshare?

The DT constitution does not mention Plough Lane anywhere with regards to restricted actions. It is outdated and still only refers to Kingsmeadow.

A few thoughts on the Bjorn Borg victory over John McEnroe in the 1980 @wimbledon men's #tennis final #WimbledonRecreated

Just like the @DetroitPistons had to lose playoff series to @celtics before winning @NBA finals & @chicagobulls had to lose to the Pistons before defeating
them & becoming the champions & @stanwawrinka had to lose some epic 5-setters in Grand Slams before breaking through to defeat @DjokerNole & @RafaelNadal & @rogerfederer en route to his Grand Slam victories, McEnroe took a rough beat, especially when he dropped the 2nd set
despite all of those opportunities. His grit in the 4th & 5th sets proved to everyone, most especially himself, that he should hold the #Wimbledon trophy, and indeed he did, several times.

This should encourage @ThiemDomi, who has come close to winning a grand slam. IMO, he's

#BIN ¿Cuál es la situación amaneciendo este domingo? Primero, una noche y madrugada con muchos rumores, ruidos, carrerones y hasta (dicen que) tiroteos. En resumen,la masa no está "pa' bollos" y los sabe hasta "María la bollera". Luego, lo interesante, la situación del régimen...
#BIN El régimen veinteañero (cumple 20 años en 5 días), que tanto se ufanó de ser "pacífico pero armado", ahora recién descubre que quedó reducido "a tiros de salva". Lo que fueron los ciudadanso (evitaré en lo posible llamar oposición), muchos huesos sin músculo, ahora son ellos
#BIN #ElEstadoDeLaNación 1. Se apoderaron de los dólares, los malgastaron en armas, nos debilitaron, otros huyeron, se apoderaron del CNE, de la FANB y del TSJ, todos sucursales de PSUV; se apoderaron de la soberanía y crearon una fraudulenta "ANC", para minimizar al parlamento.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

On his 37th birthday, we're putting it to a vote - what's your favourite @rogerfederer shot at #Wimbledon?

We've selected our top four for you to choose from, and the first needs little in the way of introduction...
A true @rogerfederer special.

Up next is this sublime drop shot, carved to perfection in the 2012 final against Andy Murray

"You don't practise this. Even Federer doesn't do that"

Third on our list: a nonchalant flick of the wrist against David Nalbandian in 2011 #Wimbledon

it was @campbellclaret who perfected pre-briefing stories - so noone ever reported the story when they had the full document. that allowed govt to control the narrative.
@campbellclaret the media is completely complicit. only report when you get the full info - you then lose the scoop (bad) but will report actual news rather than spin (good)
@campbellclaret so how about analysing the White Paper after we actually see it.. and take time off til then off to enjoy #wimbledon, the football (if you must) and ENGvIND .#barbecuesummer..
