Its almost 2012 and what a sporting year it has been! Here is the best and most in depth sports review you will read for 2011….. Enjoy!

Football/soccer – Spain won everything and the best player in the world is an Argentine – go figure! Bafana Bafana (SA national football team) – well at least we know they can dance!
Rugby – it was the ref’s fault!
Tennis – Nadal, Federer and Djokovic play rock, paper, scissors to decide who’s winning each tournament!
NBA – what NBA? … Okay, the Mavs did finally win!
Golf – without that red golf T-shirt on a sunday…….
F1 – please let me know if it still exists!
Synchronized swimming – sorry, my bad forgot this is a SPORTS review for a second!
Cricket – finally the Aussies don’t look invincible anymore!! I don’t like the state of Test cricket at the moment (too much T20 for my liking!)

So there you have it – it doesn’t get as in depth, analytical and call it like u see it as that!!

If I didn’t mention your favorite sport, hey I’m sure ESPN will have something to say about it!

ThatmanRuss and the team thanks you for reading and following eheheheh this year and look out for many more sport related articles in the new year!

You can bite on both!

So the Rugby World Cup 2011 (RWC ’11) has begun! Opening Ceremony out of the way and the hosts ( The All Blacks) cruise to a comfortable win 41-10 against Toga. My thoughts in a nutshell: All Blacks (perrenial favourites) look good but then they always do, Springboks – defending champs (nobody has ever won babck to back World Cups) I’ll give them and 83.5379787 % chance of accomplishing that feat! The Aussies – as with cricket – you can just never right these guys off!

As for the Northern hemisphere – a couple of contenders I suppose England and the rest of the 6 nations but I wouldn’t count on it!!

As for the minnows (you know who you are) should you be there – NO! Are you there – YES! Make the most of it, be friendly and use this opprtunity to market your country and help boost tourism! Hope you heard that Wales 🙂

The trophy should be won by a Tri-Nations team but hey thats just ThatmanRuss’s take on things!!!!
