Lockdown Cricketers

Hi guys During Lockdown, I’ve watched my fair share of cricket highlights on YouTube. There are a few players that have come to my attention whilst I’ve been binging on the Big Bash, West Indies Super50 and even succumbing to the Abu Dhabi T10. That’s not to say that I hadn’t heard of any ofContinue reading “Lockdown Cricketers”

Who Should be England’s Goalkeeper at Euro 2020?

Should Euro 2020 (Or ’21 if you prefer) go ahead, then who should don the gloves, appear between the sticks, play in goal for England? Everton’s Jordan Pickford is in possession but his form at domestic level is consistently erratic.

Death in the Grizzly Maze

If you’re a Timothy Treadwell fan then this may not be the book for you… as he spends most of the 170 pages being bashed, criticised and having all his wrongs brought to attention! Mike Lapinski is a writer and photographer who firmly disapproved of Treadwell’s conduct around bears. Whilst Lapinski may well be rightContinue reading “Death in the Grizzly Maze”
