THE SPORTS WIDOW 2017 #1

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Happy New Year Ladies and fellow Sports Widows. I hope you all had a wonderful break over the Christmas and New Year period. I certainly did, until …. Boxing Day. I woke up bright and early to a beautiful day on the Gold Coast, opened the blinds to a groan from His Highness – “what time is it” he jeered. I said “6.15am – time for a run and a swim”. To his credit, he raised and everything was looking great until 9am when I suggested we get ready for the beach. “You’ve got to be kidding!!! The Boxing Day test is about to start and the start of the Sydney to Hobart is on.” I pushed myself down to the pool with my book and started working on remedying this situation for The New Year. It is fair to say that my New Year’s resolutions will make His Highness very unhappy!!!! More on that next week.

I’m sending this out early so you can get on at the price in pre-post markets because I don’t think it will last…

BRANDOS BOMBS #017

Saturday, December 10th 2016

Good morning Bombers – Well – Brando (the horse) performed like his namesake at Eagle Farm – “very coltish”!!! I hope for his sake that he is not in line for the ultimate gear change. We will follow the ups and downs of Brando the horse and I can proudly say he is now our first mascot. As predicted the Wallabies were not up to the class of England and soundly beaten. The Aussie cricket team blasted the Black Caps off the park – more on that below. The Pipe Masters on hold in Hawaii and The Sports Widow has already gone on holidays – as they say “only a rort if you are not involved”. A bit of shrinkage on this week’s Bombs due to a quite weekend of sport – I liken it to the incident George Costanza suffered after being seen naked by Jerry’s girlfriend – “I WAS IN THE POOL” Here we go:

The Sports Widow 2016 Finale

Thursday, December 8th 2016

Good afternoon girls. This will be my last newsletter for the year, unless of course His Highness commits some act of anti-greatness. (might be in touch again next week) So I bid you farewell until the New Year. I have added a photo of him at his best on the sauce at some sports event – my view is it is at some strip club in the Valley – hardly sport. I present to you below some of the low points of my year as the Widow to a Monday’s expert, sports buffoon and a regular invitee to racing and sports events by Corporate Bookmakers!!!!! (the idiot thinks they invite him for entertainment) Here goes:

BRANDOS BOMBS #016

Saturday, December 3rd 2016

Good afternoon Bombers – Go Brando, kick Brando, your home Brando, Brando you genius!! This could be any number of things people have cheered for – a length of the field try I scored (plenty of them) or me kicking home in the 25m freestyle at The Camp Hill State School grade one trials, but it is neither of them or any other of my numerous sporting glory days. No, it is Eagle Farm race 2 no 4 - Brando owned by BRC Chairman Neville Bell and trained by John and Chris Meagher. Clearly Neville has seen me in action and named his 2yo colt (whom I am going to meet at the track today) after my athletic prowess. I have seen a photo of him and I can definitely see the parallels between Brando and Brando– strong, good looking, a deft touch with the filly’s and a big set of ……. I will be posting to Youtube of the heroic efforts of my namesake at about 1pm- so jump on Youtube and search “brando the horse.” I was going to give a rundown of other sports but this race is a milestone for Sports360°.
