Ady & Flo
Uncle is recovering from having his wings clipped and in a sporting sense, unless they make swimming pools round, he has no chance of competing in any Olympic event (unless of course he makes a visit to Iceland) and gets a bionic oar made.
Which brings us to the conundrum of a certain South African athlete. The Olympic Federation has been for years trying to make the playing field level by catching the drug cheats. Then along comes someone who, defying all adversity, uses science to compete, which all of a sudden makes the field not so level again, so we think the boss should get a bionic oar and start training.
Our cricket boys have to compete against not only a Gayle, but a force 10 hurricane. We do not know if a new sort of gunja has been introduced into the West Indian dressing room, but our boys are certainly making a hash of the tour so far.
Onto the ‘Money Bill’ Williams saga. Flo and I are scratching ourselves in disbelief. On one hand he says he is honouring a handshake agreement made a few years ago, when we say, do you remember the ‘doggies’? Has this boy got no style? Talented for sure, but as has been said on many an occasion, there is no I in team, so sayonara ‘Money Bill’, and if you still yen for a little challenge, try your boxing abilities against Manny Pacquiao.
Staying with rugby, is Dave Rennie the next AB’s coach or what? We certainly think he has got the hard-nosed approach to win the cup again and the Chiefs will take out the Stormers in the super final at the ‘tron’. With Flo and I being so good at chasing and retrieving balls, we are lining up to be the ‘balldogs’, as having seen first paw how wide Flo can open her mouth (especially when it comes to my food bowl) she will have no problem getting an oval bone in her mouth.
Onto a round ball court. We think the Magic are, well, magic. Any team that can come from last place a few months ago to make the finals is, in our book, just the best. In Irene we have a person who is the epitome of a true sportsperson: you go girl! This region will have two champion teams in our predominant winter sporting codes.
Boxing. Nah, too many jokes here to even describe this circus. This so-called sport, to try and rope in a few dollars, has two female so-called celebrities providing the best boxing from the entire evening. Who are they again?
Ooops, I have to go. The boss is shaking the keys to the mobile kennel, which means outdoor fun in the sun, so as in many sporting events we will take this opportunity to thank our sponsors, ZiwiPeak, for our nutrition; Wendy for providing Flo with the training to eat properly; and the Mobile Vets, for giving us performance enhancing drugs, so I feel no pain when I have to crack the ice in the river before I can jump into it. Well, since I am older and wiser, you first Flo.
See you all next week. Please remember: be safe out there, and make sure you do it to them before they do it to you.
