Daily: 7th March 2011

Hey everybody. And for once, the following post isn't going to be an original daily post, I'm tired and basically out of ideas. Lovely.

So, what is in the news? Well, in F1 terms, it looks like Christian Klien still wants to be a part of the Hispania set up for this season. Of course Klien drove three races for them last season, not setting the world alight but far better than anyone else at the team who raced that season. And frankly thats it, which is hardly surprising for a Sunday. Times like this I hate doing dailies on a Monday.

So, lets drift into other motorsports, ooh WRC, lets talk about that. Sebastian 'Oggi' Ogier was leading (that means happy RG), but he crashed out, handing the win to a certain Mr. Loeb (which makes a sad RG). I would pretend to know about this, but I don't.

NASCAR, people drove around a bit, few people crashed, someone won, lots of adverts and yellow flags. I think.

Football, I know about this. And in a game featuring two of the greatest and successful teams in England, Wolves scored in the last five minutes to earn a 3-3 draw against Tottenham in one of the games of the season. Do watch the highlights, all three of Spurs' goals are worthy of a place on Match of the Day's Goal of the Month competition (but not a competition any more). Oh and some Liverpool side beat Man Utd 3-1. The best place for footballers in England is County Durham (in your face you southerners, unless your not from dan saaf, in that case, I'm not laughing at you at all, sorry for wasting your time). But how about this in Argentina, where a referee sent off 36 people, yes, 36.

Cricket, I'm trying to be interested in this because it is a World Cup (and I suggested it in my 5 'Sports to watch in 2011'). England continued their belief in 'make every game exciting', by securing a stunning victory over South Africa. England batted first and scored 171 (which is low), but managed to get South Africa all out for 165 (which is lower) to win. There was even some excitement on my part on it, which I haven't experienced in the sport since I scored my first ever runs (and my only ones) several years ago.

Lets see who has been doing what then, well apart from my 'Just How Biased is the BBC?' series I've proposed, Lukeh has been at his Photoshop again and of course Mr Giggles has returned! Hooray. His Audio Biography starts at the year 1980, which was of course the year that saw Tottenham finish 14th in the old First Division.

Finally, a little short tribute to a fine footballer and person, Mr. Dean Richards, who tragically died at the young age of 36. He played for Bradford City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton and Tottenham. The tribute at the game between Wolves and Spurs was immaculate, with special shirts produced which will be auctioned to raise money for charity.
