What about Rugby Union, Soccer (beaten by Jotdan in the latest game), Tennis, we could go on and on, and what about Aussie racing. Those Aussie horses racing in Aussie, who are the best 5, where are they, no one seems to know.
What is Aussie actually good at? Thank goodness for the Big Bash, Sheffield Shield, AFL and NRL comps, at least an Aussie teams wins them.
A common link - past and present champions
Can you please identify the common link between the following horses;
Sea the Stars
I will be most interested to read what you think the link may be.
From the depths of Hell
The commentators are excited uncontrollably in the home straight as they witness one of the most unbelievable finishes ever.
Copy and paste this link to view the footage..
Are these guys nuts?!
A passionate coach
Float like a butterfly
The life of this man was one to remember for all peoples, for a long time, if not for all time.
A most complete athlete, a witty and erudite person, a man who overcame the odds and obstacles that life threw at him, beginning with his birth colour and never getting much easier, he managed to romp through life with a sense of humour, humanity and regard for others, except maybe for Sonny Liston.
His leaving us has filled me with a sense of loss, and the feeling that I don't have enough years left to again see an athlete or sports person with his talent and complete mastery of his chosen field.
Sadly, I must say VALE Muhammad, Farewell Cassius, it was a pleasure to have experienced you.
UFC - should be banned
There has been enormous coverage of domestic violence and violence against women this year. There is no excuse for either and it would be great if those that need to, improved their ways accordingly.
A lot of the good work has been undone by yesterdays events. Is it now ok for society to subject others to such violence? Many will see it that way and emulate it. Violence is what it is and it should not be permissable because it happened in a sports arena.
The sport should be banned in my opinion but you can imagine the mighty dollar will win out.
Beating the Unbeatables
Aussie sporting woes - how low can you go
How low can we go. We are crumbling by the day.
Lets look at recent times.
Our Aussie bred horses at all distances are walkers. Shown up time and again by imports or those bred elsewhere. A leading racing personality said as much this week and this is why he buys overseas.
Aussie Rugby League team - flogged by NZ, that's right NZ.
Aussie Rugby Union team - flogged the same weekend.
Aussie Soccerlose - flogged by Japan. We have now lost 8 of the last 12. Our world and Asian rankings are at almost an all time low. What happened to that great recovery we were about to have earlier this year before the World Cup. What a joke.
Aussie Cricketers - less said the better. In disarray and belted off the park last weekend. They will win a couple through sheer volume of games. But the Test team was smashed by the Paki's, absolutely smashed. Now they are trying to find a captain and mentioning Watson and Haddin. I feel like we are going around in circles. These players should have moved on years ago. They are even mentioning Rex's favourite failure to make a comeback. Heavens no. Whether we win the odd game or not who is coming through to play let alone captain is the worry. There is no one. The standard of our players has never been worse.
Aussie sports in the doldrums and going backwards by the day. We are almost irrelevant in the world now.
