There’s some cynical bastards out there!

I recently joined a friends/dating forum and there was a thread asking what’s the worst that a partner has treated me (obviously not me specifically). I wrote the story of my relationship with Ali and a reply comes back saying that YOU CANT FALL IN LOVE without meeting. I believe that to be an incredibly naive and sceptical response. First thing that springs to mind is that he things that LOVE is a physical thing, it’s NOT! Love is something that you feel inside and it’s the emotional and mental connection that makes you fall in love with someone. The way that person makes you feel; the way your heart beats faster when you talk to them. Love is a feeling, it’s not physical; yes there has to be physical attraction but you know whether you are going to be physically attracted with modern technology, webcams and microphones and such things mean that couples can show as little or as much as they want online. Myself and Erin do everything that a normal couple would do at home except being able to touch physically but I am hoping to redress that in October. My last blog entry was written in a very depressed state; and I feel much better about things now.

Cricket: Michael Vaughan has resigned as England test side captain and Paul Collingwood has stood down as one day captain. Vaughan has been consistently under performing in recent series only scoring 40 runs in five innings in this series, which simply isn’t good enough for a top order batsmen. He has been lacking form and only retained his place because he was captain so I believe he has done the right thing for England. But I am not sure the ECB’s choice of replacement is a wise one, Kevin Pietersen. I believe that Pietersen will lose form much like Andrew Flintoff did when he was captain. Plus I believe there are much more qualified player in the England squad than Pietersen. But it’s their choice and no doubt it’ll be a popular choice with the fans but I severely doubt that he has what it takes to build an Ashes winning team. I’m assuming that England will revert to having one team captain for both one day and test sides again now that Collingwood has quit as well. I don’t think Collingwood did that bad as captain, he was simply let down by his top order batsmen. Ravi Bopara replaces Vaughan in the final test match at The Oval to give Vaughan a rest and hopefully he’ll come back stronger than ever regularly knocking up big scores for England!

Formula One: Lewis Hamilton was lucky to come away with the world championship lead after the Hungarian Grand Prix. The Briton started from pole but got leapfrogged by Felipe Massa and never really recovered staring at the back of the Ferrari for 40 laps. Then things got worse for Hamilton suffering a front left puncture dropping him back to 10th after a pitstop. At this point Hamilton looked like losing the world championship lead to Massa but three laps from the end of the race his engine blew up along the pit straight gifting Hamilton’s team mate Heikki Kovalainen the lead and a fortuitous maiden victory. Timo Glock drove a very mature race to bring his Toyota home in second benefiting from Massa’s failure. Massa’s team mate and world champion Kimi Raikkonen claimed the final podium spot to leapfrog his team mate and close to within five points of Hamilton. But Hamilton’s damage limitation drive finishing in fifth kept him ahead of the Finn and he will be relieved to walk away from his nightmare race with a five point lead in the drivers championship!
