Sports Junkie – by Gaffer

If you are a sports junkie like I am last weekend was an over dose in
terms of sporting action from the rugby world cup final in stade de
France to the Grande De Premio do Brasil track in sao Paulo for the
grand finale F1.Plus the resumption of the premiership after a weeks
break.
It was a weekend that England will love to forget as a nation because
their most cherished sportsmen failed to win anything in sports that
they invented back in the 1800s.
In the final of the rugby world cup in Paris it was decided by the
boots of the much fancied kickers of the two teams that is Jonny
Wilkinson and the Blonde haired fullback for Boks Percy Montgomery.
The Africans played a very efficient game in every department from the
lineout’s they won all 13 of their own throws and won 7 of England’s
26.
The red roses were denied a try by the video referee in the 1st half
but they never seemed to threaten the Boks except for that time their
try was disallowed.
The only Englishman to have lifted the coveted Web Ellis cup that
night was a rugby fan who breeched security and lifted the cup before
being whisked away by officials.
But the Englishmen proved there critics wrong by reaching the final
two times in a row even though everyone thought they were done and
dusted after they were beaten 36-0 by the South Africans in the group
stages
But the action came form sao Paolo where the rookie of the year Luis
Hamilton was in cloud 9 he had the best chance in the world to become
the first rookie to ever win F1 title.
Having been second on the grid behind home boy Felipe Massa the
Englishman was passed first by the ‘Ice man’ kimi raikonen and his
mclaren teammate driver Fernando Alonso in the opening turn.
Then things started to go bad for Hamilton when he fell back to 8th
place and his car had a gear box problem and he went even further back
to 12th place.
The Ferraris had no problems at all in the race and when Massa went
for a pit stop at the 62lap kimi passed Massa and now he was in pole
position and he coolly won the drivers title for the first time to
complete one of the most dramatic climaxes to a Formula One season.
Ferrari also won the constructors title to do a double over the
mclaren team who have announced that the former champ will be leaving
their team to Renault but what will be interesting is who will replace
him but my best choice will have to be the hekki kovalainen.
For all the sports loving people if you didn’t see this dramatic
finish to the two events then you missed a very entertaining weekend
but the good thing is it’s a champions league week and am hoping the
English teams wont get disappointed like they have been for the last
one week from the 3lions loosing to Russia in Moscow, the red roses
loosing in Paris and the new sensation in Britain Hamilton loosing in
Brazil.
