but a couple of issues from the wide world of sports have evoked...well...grrrr, in me lately. i'll share.
firstly, fucking pakistan. the cricket team, not the country. they've been embarrassed in both the test and one-day series here in australia. but that's not a problem. why would it be? of course, i want australia to win and, to be fair, pakistan are struggling a little and i have a soft spot for any underdog.
well, almost any underdog.
based almost solely on captain mohammed yousuf, i couldn't care less about pakistan's plight. that man is an arrogant twat. he led that team dreadfully. he placed outrageously questionable fields. he showed no fighting spirit.
and then this.
"no, i was trying to smell it and see how it was feeling," he said.
when the journo suggested teeth are not used for smelling, afridi responded: "sometimes you can do".
from one dickhead to the next. hi willie.
it's just weeks until the 2010 NRL season kicks off but this guy's still desperately looking for a club because he's been burning bridges everywhere he goes.
i didn't really care about his plight, until now. the cowboys, my cowboys, have now expressed an interest in signing the hulking forward.
willie mason is nothing more than a trouble-making egomaniac. the cowboys already have one of those.
johnathan thurston might be (arguably) the best player in the world, but he's the worst thing for that team, in my humble opinion.
if the cowboys sign willie, i don't think i'll have it in me to maintain my support. and i don't think i'll be alone. let that be a warning to you, nq.
