Sad Times

Sad Times

   The Comments Team are pausing today to acknowledge the death of a close member of the extended Comments Family. We’ve often wondered where the sheer depth of our sporting obsession has evolved from: having a grandmother who once watched all 94 games of a Super 14 rugby season- yes, including the matches where Aussie teams played Aussies teams, and Saffas played Saffas- goes some way towards explaining our competitive bent. Our thoughts go out today to all the southern Rowe clan- kia kaha.

   We’ve got a few links for you though to keep you entertained, so rest easy, and we’ll be back on Friday.

Football Podcasts:

   The remarkable story of the Brazilian goalkeeper who just scored his 100th goal in the top-flight in Brazil:

   A great article on the rise of endurance racing of the Le Mans style: http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2011/mar/27/ilmc-allan-mcnish-le-mans

   A huge number of entertaining ways to get fired: http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2008/may/27/games.toys

   And a couple of interesting articles on doping in sport, although it should be said that the second link is to a highly controversial blog (the February 11th posting on Rafael Nadal is a pretty interesting read):


   Cheers GrannyJean.
