  1. A few months ago, Irrfan Khan shared with everyone through his Twitter account that he was suffering from a 'rare disease'. It obviously shocked everyone and most of us just hoped it to be a joke or something for his movie or something like that because basically everyone was in denial. ð pic.twitter.com/JXD8NKwH3D — Irrfan (@irrfank) March 5, 2018 But, a few days later he updated all of his fans who were all praying for him and his welfare. ð pic.twitter.com/IDThvTr6yF — Irrfan (@irrfank) March 16, 2018 We've all known that this brilliant actor has been battling NeuroEndocrine Tumour for the past few months and we finally have an update about how he's doing after months of treatment. While talking to TOI, he opened up about how his life has been since the diagnosis and how this life-changing event has affected him. He said, “It's been quite some time now since I have been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary, I got to know, was rare, and due to fewer study cases, and less information comparatively, the unpredictability of the treatment was more. I was part of a trial-and-error game.” He continued, “I had been in a different game, I was travelling on a speedy train ride, had dreams, plans, aspirations, goals, was fully engaged in them. And suddenly someone taps on my shoulder and I turn to see. It's the TC: 'Your destination is about to come. Please get down.' I am confused: 'No, no. My destination hasn't come.' 'No, this is it. This is how it is sometimes.'” Twitter Everyone knows that life is uncertain, but he found out about it in the worst way. “The suddenness made me realise how you are just a cork floating in the ocean with UNPREDICTABLE currents! And you are desperately trying to control it. In this chaos, shocked, afraid and in panic, while on one of the terrifying hospital visits, I blabber to my son, 'The only thing I expect from ME is not to face this crisis in this present state. I desperately need my feet. Fear and panic should not overrule me and make me miserable.'” He talked about how painful everything has been. He went on, “That was my INTENTION. AND THEN PAIN HIT. As if all this while, you were just getting to know pain, and now you know his nature and his intensity. Nothing was working; NO consolation, no motivation. The entire cosmos becomes one at that moment – just PAIN, and pain felt more enormous than GOD.” Twitter He added, “The only thing certain was the uncertainty. All I could do was to realise my strength and play my game better. This realisation made me submit, surrender and trust, irrespective of the outcome, irrespective of where this takes me, eight months from now, or four months from now, or two years. The concerns took a back seat and started to fade and kind of went out of my mindspace.” And, the last thing he said for now: “Throughout my journey, people have been wishing me well, praying for me, from all over the world. People I know, people I don't even know. They were praying from different places, different time zones, and I feel all their prayers become ONE. One big force, like a force of current, which got inside me through the end of my spine and has germinated through the crown of my head. Twitter It's germinating – sometimes a bud, a leaf, a twig, a shoot. I keep relishing and looking at it. Each flower, each twig, each leaf which has come from the cumulative prayers, each fills me with wonder, happiness and curiosity. A realisation that the cork doesn't need to control the current. That you are being gently rocked in the cradle of nature.” His fans finally heard something from him after months and are now wishing him nothing but a speedy recovery. Get well soon bhai. praying — rahul dholakia (@rahuldholakia) June 19, 2018 Totally agree. You are clearly the King-Khan!

  4. This time in 2014, Barcelona's potential coup for then Liverpool forward Luis Suarez was gathering pace. The move had left most Reds fans distressed as the Uruguayan striker was leading the La Celeste to the World Cup in Brazil on the back of an extraordinary campaign for Liverpool. Suarez had scored 31 goals in the Premier League, as he helped Liverpool finish 2nd in England's top division for the first time in five years. In July, his move to the Catalan side was confirmed as the Merseysiders couldn't resist a £75m offer for their star striker. The supporters were agitated at the time, but despite his switch, he is still fondly remembered at the club. © Reuters Four years on though, Suarez's mantle has been taken over and bettered by one Egyptian International in Mohamed Salah. The winger moved from Italian side AS Roma last summer, and to everyone's surprise, including the Liverpool supporters, has gone on to achieve what nobody has ever done in England before. Salah became the first player in a 38-game Premier League season to score 32 goals as his strike against Brighton on the final day of the league campaign helped him surpass the previous record (31 goals) shared by Alan Shearer (Blackburn in 1995-96), Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United in 2007-08) and Luis Suarez himself (Liverpool in 2013-14). © Reuters This evening, in the second clash of the 2018 World Cup between Uruguay and Egypt, Suarez will lead the attack for his side while Salah is stuck on the bench desperately trying to recover. Both teams are eager to start off their campaign with an important three points. A lot has changed for both the players in the past four years as Salah has gone on to become the most feared hitman in England while Luis Suarez has guided Barcelona to many major honours, including the UEFA Champions League in 2015 and the La Liga on three occasions (2015, 2016 and 2018). Despite their contributions on the domestic fronts, questions will need to be answered if either of them fails to deliver in what promises to be a nerve-wracking contest.

  8. For all the Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan fans out there, your Eid just got super special, as the teaser of 'Zero' finally dropped today and you absolutely can't miss it. © Red Chillies Entertainment While we kept chanting 'mere Karan-Arjun aayenge' for ages, the makers took everyone by surprise as director Anand L Rai brought Bollywood's favourite brothers back and made our dreams come true. © Red Chillies Entertainment The clip introduces us to Bauua Singh (Shah Rukh Khan) at a dance competition. Bauua approaches the stage looking all nervous, but Salman Khan follows him, setting everything in motion. © Red Chillies Entertainment We see Bauua's obsession with Katrina Kaif, as we can see her picture on his t-shirt. Yes, you just can't miss these details. © Red Chillies Entertainment It is after ages that we got to see Salman and Shah Rukh setting the stage on fire with their desi moves. And if you start dancing along watching them, we won't blame you. © Red Chillies Entertainment Bauua simply can't get over Salman's presence and we can see how he continues to display his love and affection for the star. The heart-warming bit is when he jumps into Salman's arms to plant a kiss on his cheek, making our hearts gush with happiness. © Red Chillies Entertainment Clearly, this looks like the cameo we all knew Salman was going to make in the film. The groovy track, whose name we are yet to figure out, features the two superstars and we won't be surprised if this becomes the party anthem of the year. The crazy moves that the duo is pulling off will surely conquer every heart in India. © Red Chillies Entertainment Check out the amazing trailer here. We bet fans couldn't have asked for anything better than this. Helmed by Aanand L Rai, the movie also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in lead roles and will hit the screens on December 21, 2018.
  9. SRK's much-awaited movie 'Zero' is soon going to see the light of the day. Turns out that King Khan playing a dwarf is not the only highlight of the movie. The movie will also see a mini reunion of Salman and Shah Rukh. A few stills from the teaser got leaked and were enough to leave fans in a frenzy. © red chillies entertainment © red chillies entertainment As per the rumoured storyline, SRK will play the role of a man who is a big fan of Katrina Kaif. Perhaps this is the song where he meets Salman and Katrina in the movie. 'Zero' also stars Anushka Sharma in a pivotal role and will release on 21st December. Earlier a small teaser was released where it was shown that SRK's character is talking about how he might be a zero, but he increases the value of anyone if he stands behind them. This is his never-seen-before avatar and is also the last movie in which we will see Sridevi make an appearance. SRK (Bauaa) will dance with @BeingSalmanKhan in the boxing ring & will see salman picking bauaa up & kiss him on the cheeks. #Zeroteaser will break the internet & will create digital records for sure. #Zero — Sumit kadel (@SumitkadeI) June 12, 2018 SRK & Salman's Chemistry, SRK's Expressions & Madness & Dance Moves & Music & Everything. Loved it Totally. Totally Desi & Mass. Hail ALR, he won't Disappoint Usð EID Already Celebrate Ho Gayi Meri.@iamsrk @BeingSalmanKhan Mila Le Humse Haathðâ¤ï¸#ZeroTeaser @aanandlrai — Raanjhað (@RazzakSRK_) June 14, 2018 The teaser drops tomorrow, so it is a happy Eid for all us fans already.
  10. The trailer of 'Dhadak' launched amidst a grand public hype with fresh faces, who are already famous in the industry. Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter are making their Bollywood debut with this remake of 'Sairat', produced by Karan Johar himself. Even though the trailer has garnered mixed reactions from the audience, one particular section of the audience is absolutely unhappy. Turns out fans of the original move 'Sairat' are simply livid. They are asserting that 'Dhadak' is not the remake they were expecting and are being very vocal in expressing their ire. Sairat Vs. #Dhadak pic.twitter.com/FWGIGtCtsX — Godman Chikna (@Madan_Chikna) June 11, 2018 Sairat makers after watching #DhadakTrailer pic.twitter.com/gTY7M1eqmT — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) June 11, 2018 People can be really savage at times. LOL #DhadakTrailer has honest disclaimers. pic.twitter.com/kjZ4IM6Q5H — Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) June 11, 2018 We lost a gem today. RIP Sairat. #Dhadak — ajinkya ketkar (@ketkarajinkya) June 12, 2018 When you take story from Sairat, colors from Raanjhanna, set locations inspired from bhansali and still can't give viewers something to root on.#DhadakTrailer — Anurag (@anurag__mishra) June 11, 2018 And then people had a few questions for Karan Johar as well. #DhadakTrailer pic.twitter.com/RdTVZEls9U — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) June 11, 2018 Karan Johar : movie bana lo Director : kaise? K Jo : star kids, good costumes, great location, script utha lenge koi purani Director : acting? K Jo : woh next movie mein dekhenge#Dhadak — Pakchikpak Raja Babu (@HaramiParindey) June 11, 2018 The kids in Stranger things can do much better acting than Ishaan and Jhanvi in Dhadak.#Nepotism #DhadakTrailer — Aman (@TheAlteria) June 11, 2018 If you've not watched the original trailer of 'Sairat' then it's not too late, as it is a brilliant movie indeed. While Janhvi and Ishaan might prove their mettle and justify their fresh pairing in 'Dhadak', 'Sairat' fans continue to stay offended. We wonder if they will take back their words after watching the movie.

  14. While cricket undeniably reigns supreme over other sports in India, the football fever seems to have gripped the country with the coveted FIFA World Cup just 10 days away. The month-long tournament is bound to witness the cricket-crazy nation switch its loyalty from their favourite sport to football. But, as the fans gear up to rally behind their favourite international teams in the upcoming tournament, Indian football captain Sunil Chhetri urged his fellow countrymen to support their national team which is currently fighting it out in the 2018 Intercontinental Cup. This is nothing but a small plea from me to you. Take out a little time and give me a listen. pic.twitter.com/fcOA3qPH8i — Sunil Chhetri (@chetrisunil11) June 2, 2018 In a heartfelt appeal, Chhetri shared a video where he sought support from the Indian fans for his team. "I mean it's not fun to criticise and abuse on internet. Come to the stadium, do it on our face, scream at us, shout at us, abuse us, who knows one day we might change you guys, you might start cheering for us. You guys have no idea how important you guys are and how important your support is," the Indian skipper appealed through the video. Please take notice of my good friend and Indian football skipper @chetrisunil11's post and please make an effort. pic.twitter.com/DpvW6yDq1n — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) June 2, 2018 A video, that was initially aimed to garner the attention of Indian fans, didn't just go viral but also found support from popular sports icons of the country. The likes of Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, and Shikhar Dhawan all rallied behind Chhetri before urging the home fans to support the Indian football captain and his team. C'mon India... Let's fill in the stadiums and support our teams wherever and whenever they are playing. @chetrisunil11 @IndianFootball pic.twitter.com/xoHsTXEkYp — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) June 3, 2018 Such was the impact of Chhetri's video that India's match against Kenya at the Mumbai Football Arena was sold out on 4th June. For a man who will be marking his 100th appearance for India in today's clash, Chhetri had admitted that the level of football on offer in Mumbai might not be close to what is generally seen in the popular European league, but "with our desire and determination, we will try our best to make it worth your time". And, given the kind of response he's got, it seems that the Indian fans and even the celebrities have mobilised to embolden the 'Blue Tigers'.
  15. “Aaj ki taaza khabar, aaj ki taaza khabar”, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are suffering from BSCD (Bad Song Choice Disorder). No, we ain't kidding. It's a serious condition that occurs when you end up liking a song that is hated by millions, just for the sake of Bhaijaan! Wondering what are we talking about? Alia and Varun recently revealed that they are totally in love with Salman Khan's new song from his upcoming film 'Race 3' called 'Selfish'. Yeah, you heard that right! The two are hooked to the very song that is being trolled savagely by the nation right now. Alia tweeted her views about the song, proving that she is the only one in love with Salman's unbelievable lyrics. Honestly, the words are so cringe-worthy that we wonder if Salman took some personal lessons from Tahir Shah and Dhinchak Pooja. The only person who might be impressed with the 'Raazi' actress' thoughts right now is Salman Khan. And joining the 'great minds think alike' league is Varun Dhawan, who couldn't stop himself from crooning the song. He shared a bunny filter post on his Instagram story, enjoying this song while driving. The makers released the song last week and we still can't get over the tragedy that hit everyone in form of this wonderful song. Well, just like the trailer and dialogues, even the song has received a grand welcome on Twitter in the form of some creative memes and trolls. Though of course, Salman Bhai clearly isn't liking this at all! So, when Alia said it's the “best song ever” and Varun couldn't stop singing it, we knew that either they haven't heard the song properly, or the millions across the nation don't really have the IQ to understand this DEEP and MEANINGFUL song. Because anyone who has heard this song, will know what 'Selfish' has done to the existence of song making! Best song ever ðððð https://t.co/LJjM4fVjQn — Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) May 25, 2018 .@Varun_dvn croons to the melodic #Selfish from #Race3!

You watch Raazi. You are awed by Alia Bhatt's performance. You are impressed by the choice of movies she does. And then you open twitter and see this tweet 𤮠https://t.co/eEVHuOTPtE — SAGAR (@sagarcasm) May 29, 2018 You need to stop spending too much time with legend @Varun_dvn ððð #SirVarunEffects — Sir Varunardo DhaCaprio (@Overactor_dvn) May 25, 2018 u broke my heart — ð (@ShiftedtoMars) May 25, 2018 Who hacked your acc? — N.S â¤ð« (@The_EternalKind) May 25, 2018 Alia, while tweeting this...𤣠pic.twitter.com/M7Hefppq8k — ðµ (@CheezFryz) May 25, 2018 ððð pic.twitter.com/eODah9h8DG — Durgeshâ¡ (@Rocco_Durgesh) May 25, 2018 pic.twitter.com/Jb86nvgYG7 — ᴾᴷð´ (@KumarrPrasanna) May 25, 2018 Alia bi firki le rahi h — ÑιÑ JâÉ´É¢ ð (@Bas1King) May 25, 2018 Alia bi firki le rahi h — ÑιÑ JâÉ´É¢ ð (@Bas1King) May 25, 2018 Are you sitting next to him and he bullied you into tweeting this? 𤢠— ujjesha (@JustAnnaaaa) May 25, 2018 pic.twitter.com/uxvxkIWccX — DeadGrootᶻáµÊ³áµ (@SRKsXman) May 25, 2018 WTF ALOO pic.twitter.com/Fx5BojM9e1 — Od (@odshek) May 25, 2018 pic.twitter.com/OnasoNP9bZ — à¤à¤µà¤¾à¤°à¤¾ ððððð£ð...

But come on, you've got to agree that no one in their right mind can like this song. Varun and Alia please, 'Get well soon'. We can't lose you to BSCD!
  16. Taking us to an entirely different universe and making us emotionally invested in the story and its characters, was the movie of the year, 'Avengers: Infinity War'. One just cannot deny the fact that we are still reeling from the 'Avengers' hangover and can't get closure around the massive loss that we witnessed in the film. To say that we were heartbroken would be an understatement. The craze and massive success of the film can be simply gauged from the fact that it is still running in theatres around us. Some are so into it, that they have watched it over and over again, just to get an understanding of what might happen in 'Avengers 4'. Or to simply relive the awesome moments from the movie. © mensjournal While we are still coming to terms with the climax of 'Infinity War', the first synopsis of the next instalment was released, and it threw light on the sacrifices & ramifications that lie ahead, that left us paralysed. © Marvel “A culmination of 22 interconnected films, the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it,” revealed the latest issue of License Global. © Marvel While on one hand, the synopsis has raised a ton of questions which has left us hanging, on the other hand, 'Avengers 4' writers have revealed some details about the most talked about film that has piqued our interest even more. In an interview with the New York Times, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely promised that Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) will get their due and we are damn excited. © Marvel They revealed that both our favourite Avengers will get bigger screen presence in the 'Avengers 4'. In 'Avengers: Infinity War', though they had a vital role, we didn't get to see much of them and that disappointed many of Captain America's fans. © Marvel Yay! Now we officially can't keep calm! After all, Captain America is the first Avenger and Black Widow is the only female in the old guard and we love her badassery. © Marvel How much of the story will revolve around them, is something only time will tell, but 'Avengers 4' will give closure to the many loose ends in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 'Avengers 4' is slated for release on May 3, 2019, and it is going to be a very long wait!
  17. The Champions League final in Kiev is not a game the Liverpool fans are likely to forget in a long time. More than Real Madrid, Liverpool had itself to blame for league division type mistakes on the field and the scoreline truly justified the 3-1 result. © Reuters This, however, doesn't mean that the entire Liverpool squad is no good. Jurgen Klopp's team can be proud of itself for making it to the finals of the Champions League and retaining the top four spot in the EPL. Klopp has been instrumental in cultivating an aggressive mindset at Liverpool, which can be ostentatiously seen in his 'Jurgen press' plays. The Liverpool manager, therefore, has a mad fan following at the club and more so now that the team has started to deliver on its promises. Klopp is generally seen as a fan favourite and rightly so, because he respects and tries to keep in touch with the fan base. After losing to Real Madrid in Kiev, Klopp came out and celebrated their incredible journey this year with the fans, singing his heart out till the wee hours and thanking them for their support. Here's the video of Klopp with Liverpool fans: Jurgen Klopp at 6am this morning. What a man. ð´ pic.twitter.com/lrm22OVzRr — Oliver Bond (@Oliver__Bond) May 27, 2018 With such incredible fans and a super manager at the helm, Liverpool is sure to achieve great things next season and it's one team you definitely need to keep an eye on next summer.

I've made a big decision today pic.twitter.com/In0jyquPOK — AB de Villiers (@ABdeVilliers17) May 23, 2018 Fans couldn't control their emotions and were in denial for a long time, urging and begging AB to take back his decision. pic.twitter.com/K1XcqIhBLs — Md shibly (@mdshibly123) May 23, 2018 Where is dislike button!!!????

Kohli, who is also a big fan of AB, posted a heartfelt farewell message for him on his Twitter. Wish you all the best in everything that you do my brother.

  20. One of the most consistent teams in the tournament this season, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) showcased their rampant form when they became the first franchise to qualify for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 playoffs with 14 league games still left to play. Thus, there was no surprise when they topped the points table with nine wins in 14 matches in the league stage. The three consecutive losses in their last three league games did raise a few eyebrows, but SRH were happy their losing streak had no effect on their title dreams. What actually got their camp concerned and fans worried, was a narrow two-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Qualifier 1 - a game they could've won but eventually lost because they couldn't hold their nerve. As Chennai reached the IPL final for a record seventh time, Hyderabad, for probably the first time this season, looked vulnerable. Even though their top-two finish in the standings had assured them another shot at securing their berth for the summit clash, knowing a loss against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Qualifier 2 would bring a sad end to what has been a brilliant campaign so far, would've been lingering in their minds. Suddenly, their losing streak (extending to 4 games after their loss in Qualifier 1) that SRH fans didn't really care about earlier, now made them look weak against Kolkata's four-game winning run in the final stages of the IPL. BCCI It's needless to say that if Hyderabad wanted to have another crack at Chennai and IPL glory, they would need someone to do certain special things in order to secure a win against Kolkata in the second Qualifier. While SRH eventually saw someone special pulling off something extra special in the tournament's virtual semi-final, it was neither their pragmatic captain Kane Williamson, nor hard-hitting opener Shikhar Dhawan. Rashid Khan is turning out to be the Most Valuable Player in T20 format....across the world. Few will come close.... #IPL #KKRvSRH — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) May 25, 2018 The man who single-handedly propelled Hyderabad to only their second IPL final was Rashid 'ALL-ROUNDER' Khan. The 19-year-old Afghan cricketer sizzled in all facets of the game. He hammered 10-ball 34* with the willow, registered impressive figures of 3-19 with the ball and also made a huge impact in the field by taking two catches and collaborating to effect a run-out. After a 56-run opening stand between Shikhar Dhawan (34) and Wriddhiman Saha (35), Hyderabad were dealt with a double blow in the eighth over when Kuldeep Yadav dismissed the former and then sent SRH captain Kane Williamson (3) back in the hut. Three overs later, Saha fell prey to Piyush Chawla as Kolkata tightened the noose on Hyderabad. BCCI With just 113/3 in 15 overs, SRH needed some sort of acceleration but Shakib Al Hasan (28) got run-out and Deepak Hooda (19) was undone by Narine in the consecutive overs. The onus was now on the hard-hitting duo of Yusuf Pathan (3) and Carlos Brathwaite (8), but to no avail. While Brathwaite was run-out in the 18th over, Pathan was dismissed by Shivam Mavi in the 19th. Given the fact that their premier batsmen were all dismissed with just 11 deliveries left in the innings, the Hyderabad fans weren't wrong in wondering if their side could potentially post a competitive total from that stage. While many must've thought otherwise, young Rashid had other plans. The right-hander had already opened his account with a boundary and despite Pathan's dismissal on the first delivery, he clobbered Shivam Mavi for two big sixes in the 19th over. The final over was arguably the one that changed the scenario for SRH. After Bhuvneshwar Kumar scored a boundary and a single on the first two balls, Rashid smashed a four and six before taking a couple and then finishing with a six again. BCCI The last over yielded 24 runs for Hyderabad as Rashid remained unbeaten on 34 runs that came off in just 10 deliveries. The Afghanistan star smashed two fours and four sixes while scoring at a strike rate of 340. Despite being on the backfoot for better part of their innings, Hyderabad - on the back of Rashid's batting prowess - managed to comeback in the contest after posting a competitive total of 174 runs. For a cricketer who has established himself as one of the highly sought after spinners in the cricket world, Rashid's knock didn't just surprise the SRH fans, but it also shocked Kolkata. And, after a cracker of an innings, a high-on-confidence Rashid went on to emulate his success in the field. BCCI Introduced into the attack in the sixth over with KKR going strong at 67/1, Rashid bowled a tight line and varied his length to ensure he conceded just three runs in his first over. Eight deliveries later, Rashid made an impact. But it wasn't his bowling, Rashid had combined with Wriddhiman Saha to effect the run-out of Nitish Rana (22). Rashid claimed his first wicket of the night in his second over when he rattled the stumps of Robin Uthappa (2) who was looking to deploy the reverse sweep against Hyderabad's best bowler. His third over saw him claim another scalp, only this time the victim turning out to be dangerous Chris Lynn (48) who was threatening to take the game away from SRH. BCCI If Lynn's dismissal derailed Kolkata's run-chase, Andre Russell's dismissal, orchestrated by Rashid in his final over, virtually pushed the hosts out of the game. Looking to cut hard, Russell was foxed by Rashid's deceiving googly before sending the ball straight into the hands of Dhawan who rarely drops those. Making the game his own, Rashid's blistering batting display was followed by his breath-taking bowling. He finished his spell of four overs with three scalps to his name that came at an expense of just 19 runs. But, the Hyderabad spinner wasn't done yet. As it turned out, Rashid continued to contribute towards his team's win by taking two catches in the final over of Kolkata's innings. A 10-ball 34, figures of 3-19, a crucial run-out and two catches under pressure; not many can recall such an impressive all-round performance in the history of IPL. It's undoubtedly one of those dream outings that will not only be hard to forget, but also hard to match.

  22. Last month was the 10 year anniversary of this website, and I did **** all to celebrate it. Which is really the right way to celebrate a site like this. I was going to do an infographic making fun of myself, and I didn’t even do that. But I am doing something else that has something, slightly, to do with this site, I’m starting my own sports writing course. I never passed highschool, university, and also never worked at a newspaper. When I started this site I was a car park attendant, so you know, I’ve learnt a few things along the way. This scrappy little cesspool was the place I learnt how to write good like. So if you want to learn from the guy who taught himself by writing about a Kallis orgasm, you can. There are two SE London all day Saturday classes available: The 21st of October that has just had two cancellations, and thusly has a shittone of space for an intimate course where you can feel my spittle on my face as I talk. The 4th of November class is almost booked out. So you’d want to get in fast for that. There will be a course in Melbourne for late January. And more courses in the UK next year. For those who that doesn’t cover, there will also be an online course hopefully active by late November. You can register your interest for it here. The course is essentially me reverse engineering my writing, so it’s a pretty horrible look inside my brain that will hopefully explain how to be a better writer on sport. Or a sociopath. The rest of the course is from spending the last ten years talking to other aspiring writers. Answering their questions, doing reddit AMAs, dealing with the odd work experience kid, and helping out my friends. I think there are important, easy and practical things you can learn in eight hours that can help you become better. This is really the course I wish I’d taken back in the day, instead of pissing about here making fun of cricketers all the time. Anyway, do the course, don’t do the course, whatevs, I’ll be off half arsing that infographic that I’ll never finish. View the full article
