From the HD surveillance camera

When wireless was something else.
This is what I know as a wireless. We had one in the kitchen and I listened to sport on it before television. The main sport was tennis which was my passion. It’s hard to believe now as I watch the Australian Open in HD colour with slow motion replays how anybody actually followed a game on radio. It was made possible by the likes of Dan Maskell whose verbal eloquence portrayed a feeling of actually being there.
It’s Rosewall to serve

“Is it safe to come out yet? ”
“Yeah sure come on”

I’m writing a letter to the International Olympic Committee (and sticking a fiver in the envelope) and asking if they will add Dog Wrestling in the next Olympics. I watched Greco Roman wrestling from the Olympics last night and it’s rubbish it would be a lot more entertaining to see more of this.

I’m starting a crowd funding project to see what I can raise and then I’ll give MAS a call and see if we can do a deal. Then we decide to take it out of Trump’s hands or sell it to him at a profit.
p.s I was the passenger taking the photo.

I just can’t watch Masterchef with Mum. All that cooking and no result. It’s just too much.

I’ve said it before “I could do that” No I’m not talking about being a referee but I could be an commentator, it dead easy. Picture the scene. It’s late in the second half and Martin Tyler is commentating on the Euro Final. Not much is happening so he fills in.
“Mark Clattenburg is from Newcastle and Moussa Sissoko plays with Newcastle. They probably know each other”
Sure Martin they look like great mates. Always down the pub together.

Can you imagine the scene in the members lounge of Muirfield Golf club last night as they watched the presentation of the Cup to Dustin Johnson.
“George come back in here a minute, the Americans have a woman president”
“I thought the elections were in November ?”
“No I don’t mean Clinton the USPGA has a woman president”
“George George are you ok?”
