  1. World Cup 2018 Russia

    I had a visit from my somewhat Russian friend. He told me two little stories relating to the world cup that might be of amusement: 1) The bids for this world cup went in 5 years ago. Putin started building the stadia 6 years ago...(they needed new stadia - the Russian football federation did not...

  2. Some ramblings connected with the recent ball tampering scandal.

    First let me say that I'm looking at this in the context of the global game, not just as an issue for Cricket Australia and secondly that many teams and individuals in the past have crossed the line in one way or another. I knew of course that there was a lot of bull and bluster around Ashes...

  3. England Rugby coach really messes up

    Eddie Jones has just had a short film of him talking at a sponsors' bash go public. Unfortunately he refers to Wales as a ****ty little place and the Irish as scummy. I'll note in passing the timing of this coming out is interesting with an England/Ireland Grand Slam game coming up. But omg....

  4. Oscar Pistorius.....what next ?

    Oscar Pistorius , a man with no legs below the knee, ran in the Olympics against able bodied men. He uses special sprung metal 'legs'. What happens when they improve the legs so much that it gives him an advantage? I just don't see how an able bodied flesh and blood athlete can compete...

    Elgar and Rabada caught at 1st slip (Elgar making a fine 136), Morkel lbw. Only the 4th time it's been done in Test history - and the first for 60 years. Nice one Mo! :) England v South Africa: Moeen Ali hat-trick wraps up hosts' victory - BBC Sport...

  7. Wimbledon 2016

    I was walking, early afternoon, and thought it was warm out. Sunny. No longer chilled. Then this dread premonition of doom swept over me. It'll be Wimbledon soon if it's warm out. Anyway, we'll need a thread. Who will be first to use the M word?

  8. Baseball Brain Buster

    Many years ago, I had a clock-radio that woke me every weekday at 6am. It was tuned to a station that had an hour-long news summary every morning. At exactly fifteen minutes past the hour, there would be a "daily puzzle". The answer would not be given until the following day, giving...

  10. Trent Bridge

    Oh my goodness. I say. What a moment to savor. Blimey. England seamer Stuart Broad took 8-15 as Australia were bowled out for 60 on the opening morning of the fourth Ashes Test, the shortest first innings in history. Broad equalled the quickest Test five-wicket haul, claiming 5-6 in 19...

  13. Dean Potter - Pushing the envelope

    Dean Potter lived his life "pushing the envelope", a phrase coined by airplane test pilots in the mid 20th century. Potter won acclaim free-climbing some of the most challenging places in the world. He solo-climbed the El Capitan and Half Dome in a 24 hour period, and once climbed El Capitan...

  14. Deflate-gate

    I guess they can't very well disqualify them because seriously, what happens to all the money won/lost on that game? And to be frank with you , I've suspected the fix was in all season to get these two teams to the Superbowl... how else to explain the miserable and unexpected performance of my...

  15. Thats it England, all over.

    I enjoy a good football match, don't follow any team, but every four years the spectacle of the World Cup comes around and I get caught up in the idea England could win the sports greatest prize......................again. Then we get beaten by a team from a country who's total population couldn't...

  16. David (Moyes) and Goliath (Sir Alex).

    "Manchester United to SACK David Moyes." from Mirror online. Just had to happen I guess. Following Goliath was always gonna be a tough, almost impossible task for a manager like David Moyes. Well its an "ill wind" and all that because the team I follow, Everton, are going from strength to...

  17. Candlestick parks last game

    Will be between Joe Montana and Niners all stars, and Dan Marino and Dolphins all stars. Saturday, July 12th, 2014. In deference to the age and condition of the former players, this will be a FLAG football game. What a hoot, mark your calendars! :yh_clap

  18. NFL Super Bowl XLVII

    Well tomorrow will kick off the 48th game of the Super Bowl here in the USA. The Seattle Seahawks will go against the Denver Broncos with each team bringing a 15 - 3 record to the game. It should be a really great game! I'll be watching but mostly for the commercials. There are major...

  20. Ducking & Diving.

    As a sports lover and a former footballer in my youth, I follow the BPL ... (for the uninitiated the British Premier League), which in my humble opinion is the crème de la crème of football leagues. However one aspect of British and world football that irks me is the dive. This is plain and simple...
