Ok, it is Monday and I am back as promised. However, after playing two tough games of football and winning the Strait Cup for the Karori Magpies as well as sleeping very little and altogether having a great weekend, I am pretty exhausted. It is also my flat mate’s 21st birthday today which requires celebration and so as a result, a proper post is pretty much out of the question until tomorrow, when hopefully I will have recovered a little more.
For now though, you may content yourselves with my latest Salient article, which looks at New Zealand’s upcoming World Cup Qualifier with Bahrain and it’s significance in the wider context of NZ Sport. Also to blow my own trumpet a little, I came second in the award for Best Sports Writer at the Aotearoa Student Press Associsation Awards on Saturday night for my work for Salient this year. Given that that work consisted of just three articles about football (as opposed to all sports) I take that as a huge compliment and am very proud!
