Sports Bio

A life-long Ipswich Town fan, I'm used to dim and distant triumphs, backed up with more recent disappointment. So you'll not be surprised to hear I follow the Dolphins, (0-2 in Superbowls in my time).

For a trivial aside, I have a career record of one catch for nine yards from future Hall of Fame Quarterbacks, when Dan Marino visited the UK in 1986.

He looked quite useful.

Mark Sanchez Hurt in Fourth Quarter of Preseason Game: Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News on what happened Saturday in the Jets/Giants preseason game: "Rex Ryan took ineptitude and incompetence to new heights with a boneheaded decision Saturday night that ultimately could seal his fate as the head coach of the Jets. Ryan, apparently consumed with winning a trophy of a Peanuts character, vaulted into the annals of dumb moves by putting Mark Sanchez into the fourth quarter of the Jets' meaningless preseason 24-21 overtime win over the Giants at MetLife Stadium. Sanchez promptly suffered a shoulder injury that clouds the Jets' quarterback situation."

It turns out that Zlatan guy is ok.

The new LA FC had gone up 3-0 in "el Trafico" before the Galaxy pulled back to 2-3 and then after coming on as a sub Zlatan scored two goals in 20 minutes to win the game, because of course he did.
