A couple of cool little things noticed during this week. First, Big Papi brought a smile to the face of Baseball Ireland with the below Tweet.
I believe Emerald Diamond director John Fitzgerald went to a lot of trouble to be the catalyst for this to happen (many Bothan spies and all that) so, kudos to him.
Secondly, this little video clip stood out for me this week. Juventus summarily dismissed Celtic from the Champions League with an abject, dismissive, 'cool' that Dexter would be proud of. After the match however there was a lovely little moment of sportsmanship. It's a very simply moment, a Celtic and Juventus fan exchanging team scarves over a security wall, however, it resonates heavily in this day of sports cynicism and greed.
I love the way the Celtic fan marches off with his trophy, and throws it over his shoulders with the confidence of an Italian catwalk model.
Right, wipe a tear away, and let's move on to a summary of what garbage has been churning forth from the keyboard of this guy all week
- Ronaldo is back on top of the World. A little look at the recent rejuvenation of the always colourful Portuguese winger for BetDash
- The Miami Heat 'did' the Harlem Shake, and, I hated it (with samples of much better versions). A short piece on same on Irish Central. The alternative videos are so funny.
- So did you know Rory McIlroy was destroying a big sambo just before his final shot on the Honda Classic, where after which he walked off the course. He later attributed it to wisdom tooth pain. An article ridiculing same on Irish Central.
- Finally, a story in Irish Central on how Ronan O'Gara may have been dropped by Ireland for reasons other than solely form.
Right that's about it. Have a great weekend all ya'll.
