What does it take to become a sporting hero?
It's that time of year again. It has come a little bit later than years past and perhaps we are still not completely done with sub-zero temperatures, but Spring is on its way. I can tell because people are leaving their winter boots and parkas at home and rather choosing to break out the running shoes and spring jackets! The snow has all melted and the grass will soon be ready to grow again.
Recent reports across various media outlets in Canada have confirmed that soccer is experiencing growth in participants across all ages, while hockey has started to decline!
Bonjour, or should I say Yiassou having just returned from the Greek island of Crete. My girlfriend and I had a lovely time, a much deserved break for us both, a chance to relax in the sun, snorkel and various other activities.
After having had a few lemonades in my local public house, a friend and I were discussing our professions and our enjoyment of them. We then went off subject trying to list the most difficult jobs in the world, including the British Prime Minister and the next Manchester United manager; we listed the obvious - Firemen, the Police and all the emergency services. Admittedly we did digress somewhat, for example, the most difficult job in the world being selling doors – door to door…‘bing-bong, o you’ve got one, never mind’!!! It then became quite competitive as to who had the more enjoyable job.
Last night I had the pleasure of going to see Derren Brown’s new show - “Enigma”. It was truly amazing, and even the biggest sceptics amongst the audience left utterly spellbound. We were asked as an audience not to reveal anything that goes on within the show, so as to not ruin it for others, so I will stand by my promise. If you get the chance to see it though, please do!
