Trump vs Hillary

Trump vs Hillary (1)

Trump vs Hillary (4)

It’s the election contest that Political Junkies the world over have wanted to see. Donald J Trump vs Hillary R Clinton. It’s a match made in cable news heaven. With the withdrawal out of the Republican race of Texas Senator Ted Cruz after his defeat in Indiana a few days ago, Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican Nominee in the battle for the White House. On the Democrats side unless the FBI indicts Hillary Clinton over the email scandal she will be the Liberal nominee in the race for the Presidency.

Go Manly

Go Manly (1)

I think I was about 13 at the time, my cousin Adrian had a motorbike, which I thought was cool. He was a big Manly fan. One day after I’d finished running Track and Field at Narrabeen he said, “Do you want to go to Brookvale to watch Manly play?” My eyes lit up. “I can take you on the back of my bike”. My eyes really lit up, I looked at Mum and she nodded with cautious approval. At this stage I didn’t really follow any team, Mum wanted me to barrack for Souths, ‘The Mighty Rabbits’ she’d say.  Continue reading Go Manly

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones (1)

My buddy Swami told me about this show that he watches called ‘Game of Thrones’. I’d never heard about it. This conversation happened about 4 years ago. ‘You have to watch this show’ he said excitedly. ‘Its about these different kingdoms that are all battling to get on the iron throne’. I was intrigued but in no hurry to break out the popcorn. Finally one night I relented and parked myself in front of the TV and pressed play. All it took was one scene to get me hooked.

Novak Djokovic is Dominating

Novak (1)

Eight years ago Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open as a 20 year old; he had arrived to the big show. The question was could he build on it and continually challenge the Grand Slam monopoly that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal had created? The answer was no. In the following 3 years he made only one more Grand Slam final, at the 2010 US Open, losing in 4 sets to Rafael Nadal. Continue reading Novak Djokovic is Dominating

Marilyn Manson ‘Antichrist Superstar’

 

Manson (1)

In the 90’s Marilyn Manson was the bogeyman and public enemy number one. He had the Christian right after him, the PMRC after him and politicians after him. Manson set the rock world on fire and was reveling in the wreckage. The teenage element saw him as their evil outlet, thrilled that their parents didn’t approve whom I’m sure would have preferred posters on their kids walls of Hootie and the Blowfish.

Peyton Manning Retires

Peyton Manning Retires (1)

This week Peyton Manning retired at the Denver Broncos Headquarters at Dove Valley. Number 18 saying goodbye to the game that he transformed for 18 seasons. I may have been a fan of the NFL since the mid 90’s, following the Broncos before the back-to-back Elway Super Bowls, but it’s only been the last few years I’ve fallen into the super fan category, largely because of Peyton.
