Jealous of the Hamsters
Just back from a walk along Waikiki Beach. It's a strange place really, very east meets west. All hula dancing and south Pacific one minute, then turn the corner and it's Starbucks and capitalist America the next.
Have just seen that West Ham beat Middlesbrough
earlier today. Congratulations to them and my West Ham mates - another trip to Cardiff for them, one would be nice, wouldn't it? Can't help feel a tinge of jealously at West Ham's sucess but they have proved what a bit of imaginative football can do. What a fantastic season the Hammers and Wigan have had.
It was the London marathon today and I noticed that Chicago
winner's Deana Kastor
and Felix Limo
were both triumphant again. If I can I would like to keep up with Danny Wallace's efforts to walk the race. Wallace suffers from MS and I read this interview
when I was home recently. It is a sad tale, and his cause deserves some publicity and support. As he says: "I hope people don't feel sorry for me. Just pick me up, so I can go on again."
Also yesterday was Chicago Bulls
first game in the NBA play-off's. They have a tough draw against one of the favourites Miami Heat
and all. In the first of seven games the young Bulls lost 111-106
. Next game is tomorrow (Monday). Go da Bulls.
