A cup is an open-top container used to hold or cold liquids for pouring or drinking; while mainly used for drinking, it also can be used to store solids for pouring (e.g., sugar, flour, grains, salt). Cups may be made of glass, metal, china, clay, wood, stone, polystyrene, plastic, aluminium or other materials, and are usually fixed with a stem, handles, or other adornments. Cups are used for quenching thirst across a wide range of cultures and social classes, and different styles of cups may be used for different liquids or in different situations. Cups of different styles may be used for different types of liquids or other foodstuffs (e.g. teacups and measuring cups), in different situations (e.g. at water stations or in ceremonies and rituals),or for decoration.

    Ryder cup - 2018 Paris

    Day 1 - Europe 5v3 USA. What an afternoon, after being 3-1 down this morning Europe won all 4 games in the afternoon. Totally amazing stuff and it’s becoming a classic game. Plenty of support in Paris and it’s certainly vocal - I hope it doesn’t get too ‘American’ like over there.

    England - World Cup 2018

    Qualifying has started Slovakia 0-0 ENGLAND @ half time. Very much of the same, too slow in build up, not enough happening in front of their goal and too many not playing to their potential. 2nd half will be better , Sam will have words!
