Must watch: The referee may in fact be blind

Still angry that Frank Lampard’s goal against Germany didn’t count? If the answer is yes, then move on.  Seriously. Especially when you put it in to context. The following incident had fans asking, with genuine seriousness, if the referee was indeed blind…

The team robbed of a goal was Costa Rican outfit Alajuelense, who eventually lost [...]

Rugby League: Some Magic Weekend predictions

Off to Cardiff, then. I’ve checked for snow, floods, hurricanes etc and it seems that we will be able to get there. So that’s the first hurdle out of the way, although holding anything in February will always be a lottery.

Beating the odds

Many days I wake up in utter amazement at how good I feel even though I have lived with a life-limiting disease for almost half of my life now.
