Love that I can drive home listening to the baseball now. It’s opening day for the MLB today and after catching the pre-game show on the commute home I’m now chilling on the couch watching the Brewers at Cincinnati. Looking forward to tomorrow when both the Cubs and the Red Sox get their respective seasons under way.
Perhaps that’ll take my mind off my other passion.
I have NO clue how it helps rugby league one single iota to slot another team in between Warrington, Wigan and St.Helens.
Speaking of rugby league … what to say? A sad day today; Widnes’ Super League application was accepted. No offence Chemics-lovers; it’s not personal just I don’t see how it move the game one inch forward.
I have NO clue how it helps rugby league one single iota to slot another team in between Warrington, Wigan and St.Helens. RL needs it like it needs a kick in the balls; which is to say not at all. The double whammy on this is that the admission of Widnes seriously weakens the Championship as a viable stand alone competition.
The RFL are slowly cranking the clock back to 1984; taking the Super out of Super League and miring the game in a parochial swamp. I fully expect them to announce a revamped Floodlit Cup competition as soon as they find a TV partner willing to film it in black and white and a whippet loving commentator to add a bit of local colour.
I guess it must be me that’s out of step; but I’ve always thought the game was bigger than the people who aspire to run it have ever seemed to imagine it to be. Like having a corner shop keeper running the country … oh, wait.
I despair today … am avoiding all the RL news sites. I don’t know what their (RFL) ‘big picture’ plan is … but I’m betting you can get to it down the M62.
