Warne vs Tendulkar

No Comments 08 November 2015

We all loved watching Shane Warne bowl growing up. Thankfully, since his retirement in 2007, there’s been no shortage of comebacks to keep us entertained. Today he did it again, taking on some of the greatest batsmen of all time… at a baseball stadium in New York. In the riveting Warne vs Tendulkar battle, Warne […]

7 worrying signs Horse Racing isn’t a sport

No Comments 30 October 2015

Sports are easy to identify, they are part of our culture and our lives. They don’t have to fight for their legitimacy. Then there are ‘sports’ like Formula 1 and horse racing where the lines are a little more blurred. My friends are divided on horse racing. Some of them dismiss it, others love every […]

The NRL grand final insurance policy

1 Comment 05 October 2015

The Melbourne/ Sydney rivalry seems only to exist in the minds of Melburnians these days. Sydneysiders never seem to fussed about whose state is superior anymore (probably because theirs clearly is), Queenslanders have better things to do. The AFL/ NRL rivalry is over too. We all have our a team to follow in each code […]

The poor bastard who misses out

No Comments 02 October 2015

The AFL Grand Final parade is always a great celebration; the culmination of every footballers dream. But there’s always a player who gets dropped days before on the last day in September (first day in October)… Let’s not forget about that poor bloke this AFL Grand Final day. Hawthorn midfielder Billy Hartung is the latest […]

What is the stuff on afl players shorts?

No Comments 31 August 2015

I noticed an unusual goal kicking routine on Saturday in the Bulldogs v Kangaroos game. Shaun Higgins went back to take a set shot from outside fifty and very deliberately wiped his hands across an orange splotch on his shorts. What is it? I’ve canvassed my mates and the most popular theory is that it’s […]

MCG toilet with a view

1 Comment 23 August 2015

I’ve experienced footy from just about every angle at the MCG. From the ground level of the Southern Stand to the top level of the Olympic and everywhere in between but today I found a new vantage point I never knew existed and it was in the MCC Committee room toilet. The Committee Room feels […]

Soccer is a kebab

No Comments 10 August 2015

Watching live English Premier League on Foxtel in Australia is like eating a kebab from a food van after a big night out. You know you’re probably going to regret it in the morning but you can’t say no. Last night I got home exhausted after a busy sunday playing a full game of soccer […]

Ashes Audition

No Comments 07 August 2015

Last night I finally went and saw Trainwreck at my local cinema. I enjoyed the movie but when I got home there was a whole other trainwreck waiting for me when I found The Ashes on GEM. The Aussies, all out for the humiliating grand total of 60… bowled out in 18.3 overs… Extras top […]

Is it Tiger Time?

No Comments 01 August 2015

When the Tigers led by 3 goals to zip at quarter time last night I sent a series of self deprecating texts. ‘Ring the bell’, ‘I’ve had my fun, going home now’ etc. I was keen to mitigate the pain and humiliation that I feared was to come. But we played four quarters against the […]

Tigers in limbo – Richmond v Fremantle 2015

No Comments 26 July 2015

I decided to bypass Richmond station and walk home from the MCG tonight after the Tigers 4 point loss to Fremantle. I live in Hawthorn so it’s a bit of a hike but I was feeling a bit confused and I thought a long walk might help me make sense of things. It’s 7:10pm not […]
