As the group of Sergio, Felipe, Adrian and Nigel skipped on through the snow, they came across a small village, which oddly had people in short sleeves, starting off the barbeques and had no snow around. Adrian was the first to speak out of the shock, "Those lucky..." he was cut off from two men approaching him who spoke.
"Hey Sergio, I tell what isn't real, Santa Claus."
Sadly, RG is currently trapped in his home due to the the dangerous snow levels currently being suffered by those in the North East of England and Scotland. Because of this... tragic, situation, RG is unable to actually do a proper daily. Instead, we will go straight to the live broadcast of Link Match Special, covering the first test of the world famous Dead-Links Series, of course famously named after the first Link Match between these two great nations, in which the links were permanently deleted and stored inside a folder. Any way, lets go to the action.
And its all over. Just like that. Poof, a new World Champion. A season to be done with, not the greatest ever. 2008 is still up there, but it had some spectacular highs (Kobayashi on Alonso in Valenica, if you want reminded of it, I'm more than happy to go into an half hour analytical detail about the best 40 laps of my life). And then, spectacular lows (Every single race up to Turkey, generally Pedro de la Rosa's season, Singapore and Abu Dhabi).
Geoff: "Hello and welcome to Well Known Shaving Cream sponsored Daily Special, with me, Geoff Stelling. Alongside me this week are as usual four crazy, mad men to take us through todays daily. With me are Matt Le Tissue, Paul Marson, Phil Thumpson and Charlie Oh Look at Me I used to play for Arsenal aren't they all great."
I met with Mr and Mrs C last week and they did not give me any assurances I was seeking about the future of the Daily Posts. I then told them that I would no longer be writing Daily Posts for Sidepodcast......
I probably shouldn't have another moan in a daily. But it is my daily, and I'm having a moan anyway. Now honestly, I love writing the daily, I do, I love Monday's, that as well (yes, I am a bit odd). So, doing a daily on a Monday is perfect for me, especially the 19 weeks in the year when a race has gone before it.
Can I start off with a rant? Yes, yes I can, South Shields got a mention of this weeks XFactor and trended on twitter. This makes me deeply unhappy, since South Shields is, in my eyes, worse than Middlesbrough. Am I saying this because I much prefer North Shields, yes, yes I am.
The battle is nearly won my friends. We have the advantage, we look the best. The conditions have failed to be kind, but in the end used for our benefit. This is the year we win it back, snatch it away from the hands of the enemy. Use this lead, take it with both hands and slaughter them, make them wish they never came to Wales, make them cry, win the Ryder Cup.
You. Yes you, I like the look of you. I'm not sure why, but you look good. Smart, thats always a good sign in the end. Hey now I know you can hear me so don't shy away like that. Come closer, come on, closer than that. Look, there is a chair here that you could sit on and its right next to me. I'm not going to hurt you now, look, I'm from Newcastle, we love everyone and wouldn't hurt a fly. Great, you are seated, you can hear me, lets get the bulletpoint party started.
Do you remember what happened on this day one year ago?
I'm currently afraid, I am petrified, keep thinking it's going bad with de la Rosa in our side. But on a Sunday night, thinking how it could get better, Peter says the letter, I heard news that I'd prefer. So you might be back, from Pirelli testing, we should never let you go in the first place with that beard on your face. We should have kept you in the car, we should have left you the key. If I'd known for just one second, if Pedro would bother me.
Morning. You alright? Good, thats what I like to hear. How are your family? Good too, aw that is lovely. I've been meaning to ask you, have you been keeping up with that person lately? No, oh that is a shame, I liked him you know. So did you do anything at the weekend? Ah, the DTM at Brands Hatch I see, any good. It wasn't you say, a bit dull? Oh, you found it tedious do you. Terrible. I hear that football you didn't like at the weekend was rather good. Oh, you want me to be quiet? Well fine, I'll just do the bulletpoints.
It was wet, everyone was on the edge of the seat. Journalists, fans, prepared to slaughter the unlucky losers, and praise the chosen three. Would the men in charge get the choices right, sort the men from the boys, penalise the wrong men, select the victors. Yes, Colin Montgomerie chose Padraig Harrington, Luke Donald and Edoardo Molinari as his wildcard picks for the Ryder Cup.
To quote Lindisfarne, 'I'm Coming Home Newcastle.'
Feet up lovely people, it is official, F1 is on the summer holiday. I assume that means not much of a daily is required then.
Oh hi, you have caught me in an unexpectedly good mood. Obviously the F1 wasn't the cause of that. Yes you lovely people out there, speedway has once again made me a happy chap. One hand on the Premier Trophy, and here I go into more song and dance. A whole 22 points safe for the second leg, oh its lovely. And Tai Woffinden isn't even involved (that is for tonight). Sadly though, I fear the mood is downhill from here.
Congratulations everyone, we've made it to the 200th day of 2010. Give yourselves a pat on the back, 200 days since New Years Day. Where on earth has the time gone? We are half way through the F1 season and have witnessed the World Cup, Wimbledon and of course, the Open Championship of golf. (Promise, this is the last mention of the sport until the Ryder Cup). And you know what all these posts have required? Guest posters like myself. Mrs C pays her tribute and I'd love to say thanks to them for allowing me to write the daily (even if this one is on course to be so very late). So, to the bulletpoints:
