Well it seems a have upset a few people by mentioning that having friends over to watch the Lions wasn’t always that much fun. Let me just explain that it was LOVELY to see everyone, and I would have been much happier if we had won. All my guests were charming, and very helpful. But I think we are all glad to have the Saturday lie-in back, and let’s move on, shall we?<br />
Firstly, I don’t talk about golf, mainly because I don’t like it. I don’t like golf clubs, I don’t like golf attitude, and I don’t like American golf fans. The Ryder Cup doesn’t count – that’s fun, and it’s an underdog thing.<br />
And then there’s Tiger Woods. When a player transcends their sport, like Tiger, you just have to take notice. 10 majors before turning 30 is a scary achievement, and like Roger Federer, you know you are in the process of watching a potential best-of-all-time player as it unfolds.<br />
As an aside, is there anyone Lleyton Hewitt can’t piss off? He is now in trouble with, wait for it, the Victorian Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby for <a href=”http://foxsports.news.com.au/story/0,8659,15965389-23216,00.html”>calling the umpire a “poof”</a> during the testy Davis Cup match against Argentina. Brilliant. I love Lleyton, because he can be a total prick and I think he knows it, yet he also seems a genuine nice guy off the court. More please.
