Today shall be one to remember for me, what with all the changes happening in my life, and all around me, particularly in the world of sport.
Today, I will voluntarily join the 80% of our populace who are unemployed. Many have questioned the wisdom of my decision, but I will stand by it and, if all goes to plan, everything will be alright. Just stay tuned for further updates.
On an even sadder note, George Best, one of the greatest footballers to have ever lived, and a dude whose lifestyle is the stuff of legend, is expected to die today. That George Best, a man who once chased down Johan Cruyff just to give him a deya, is dying from hte ravages of alcohol abuse can only be a lesson to the rest of us!
And, on a more personal note, the news of Tatenda Taibu’s resignation as Zimbabwe cricket captain, and from Zim cricket entirely, can only be met with trepidation by a board who, only a while ago, were trumpeting him as the future of a national sport abandoned by greedy and unpatriotic whites. Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it.
What a day….
