David Wright, the man nicknamed “Captain America” by the Mets has finally succumbed to his injuries. His is a grating, but needed farewell.
Today, Tim Cahill announced his retirement. For all our footballing lives, he was there to bail us out. With him gone, it’s time we all become adults.
This morning we discovered that football is not coming home. But, as a supporter of England, losing at the point of victory is all we know. It’s fine.
To prove that we’re truly in the underworld, England has advanced in the World Cup by virtue of a penalty shootout. What?
Yes, you are reading this correctly. DeMarcus Cousins has just signed for the Golden State Warriors. Surely they’ve ruined the league this time.
Well, it’s official. LeBron James has ditched Cleveland and will play for the Los Angeles Lakers. I mean, it’s a big move, but the Lakers? Really?
Let’s be honest. The Socceroos failed because we failed them. The entire journey to this point has been beset by negativity and cynicism. Time for a change.

LeBron James was dangerously close to dragging the Cavs to a lead in the NBA Finals. Sadly, JR Smith forgot what the score was. Well, at least we got some art out of it.

Australia set out to dominate the Commonwealth Games, and did so, so why did the majority of us not care?
Over in America, something is happening not seen since the days of Babe Ruth. A pitcher who can hit home runs. Believe the hype.
After it was revealed that Steve Smith engaged in ball tampering, the entire nation lost the plot. But why?
The NRL stands at a pivot point, it must seek borders anew if it wants to remain relevant. While PNG might seem a radical proposition, their love for the game might re-ignite ours. Worth a try.
It seems that the exciting appointment of Bert van Marwijk will be a passing thrill as control of the Socceroos will be handed to Graham Arnold after the World Cup. Yay.
Humble, accessible, supremely talented, Sam Kerr is the footballing icon we’ve been waiting for.
Today’s NRL Grand Final deserves an atmosphere worthy of it, however, I believe Sydney is unwilling to co-operate.
Last week the NRL saw the worst crowds in 30 years, which merely highlights the larger issue: Where have all the players worth watching gone?
As one of the millions who paid to view it, I felt the Mayweather/McGregor fight was little more than two men counting their money, working towards an outcome we all already knew.
