    2008 in Sport

    Well, the year's coming to a close, so I thought I'd start a sports review thread.

    Basically the idea is that you post about what you'll remember from 2008 in sport, it doesn't have to be the biggest, most famous things, but the ones that you'll remember. A good idea might be the 5 people you'll remember specifically...

    I'm gonna use pictures, but you can write about them too...


    Chase Utley

    Ryan Howard

    Cole Hamels

    Adrian Mutu

    Usain Bolt

    Or something.

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006

    Of those people, I've only heard of Adrian Mutu. And that's only because he got the boot from some ****ty club for taking non-prescription drugs. A sad year for sport if a convicted drugs abuser provides a highlight of the year. In many sports, he would have been banned for life.

    One of the poorer years for Australian sport for a while, was 2008.

    Todd Carney - Probably for the wrong reasons, so much wasted talent.


    Roger Federer - Winning the U.S open when everyone said he was a spent force.


    Jason Krejza - May be pretty ordinary in general but 12 wickets on test debut is reasonable for mine.


    Israel Folau - Signing for the Broncos, he'd want to be good considering what hes getting.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
