The silence on the blog has not been because one has been divorced from sport. Or too busy. Or too indifferent.
Truth is that the events surrounding the cricket in Australia have been numbing. And tiresome. Its not what one watches sport for and altho have spent a huge amount of time discussing the events and their ramifications, the feeling has usually been one of “running on empty”.
Sport isnt meant to be like that. One watches because it inspires. And though there have been enough and more uplifting moments in the cricket and elsewhere in sport , for some reason it was the controversy that remained top of mind.
That said, a great big thanks to the number of people that kept visiting. And those that prompted a post.
I’ve started so I’ll finish … and continue.
