ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsTwo or more people sharing the same first name, isn't something new. In fact, having 5 students with the same name in the same class was often a difficult task for teachers to deal with. I am sure we all have a Pooja, Neha or Aarti in our lives, because these names are so common. But, what are the odds that they all share the same surname? And what are the chances that one of them is a global megastar? Not many, right? Well, I would have thought so too had I not come across Ryan Reynolds. Confused? Well, I am not talking about him… © Instagram Or Deadpool… © Marvel Entertainment In fact, this is also not about Blake Lively's husband, who loves to troll his wife on social media. © Instagram I am talking about Ryan Reynolds from Australia, who went viral on social media, after he enquired about Marvel Stadium. Seriously, 'Deadpool 2' actor talking about Marvel Stadium, what can possibly be so interesting that people are going crazy over it? Well, this Ryan Reynolds is actually a sports journalist and the stadium in question has nothing to do with MCU or superheroes. Neither does this Ryan Reynolds has anything in common (except the name), with the more famous Ryan. And sense of humour probably. In fact, given the blue tick on the Twitter accounts of both the Ryans, I won't be surprised if any of us ended up following the wrong Ryan in haste. © Twitter Back story: Melbourne's Etihad Stadium will soon go by a new name – Marvel Stadium, after Disney struck an eight-year deal with them. Before 2009, Etihad Stadium was known as The Docklands Stadium, Colonial Stadium and Telstra Dome. Taking a cue from this excellent 'Deadpool=Marvel' and 'Ryan Reynolds=Ryan Reynolds' opportunity; the sports reporter who works with Geelong Advertiser posted this. Do I get free entry into Marvel Stadium? #Deadpool2 — Ryan Reynolds (@Reynolds_R) May 23, 2018 In fact, Ryan even tweeted to the 'Deadpool 2' actor, asking him out for a coffee next time he's in Australia. Any chance of catching up for a coffee next time you're in Oz @VancityReynolds ? My shout. https://t.co/bd3c6YTjjP — Ryan Reynolds (@Reynolds_R) May 24, 2018 Well, thanks to his cheeky tweet we finally know that there's someone apart from Ryan, who will now probably be the target of all the Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds jokes. Good luck covering the Australian Football League (AFL), Ryan. We wonder how Ryan Reynolds will react once he comes across the lesser known Ryan. Source: Geelong Advertiser
Sports Minister Issues A Fitness Challenge & World's Hottest Actor Accepts, Virat Kohli Follows
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWe see multiple challenges and campaigns running on social media every now and then, but not every challenge is as interesting as the one we are going to talk about right now. Ok, maybe less interesting than the 'ice bucket' challenge, but since summers are here we need to sort out our priorities. © Twitter Taking a cue from the various campaigns out there, Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, has started a fitness campaign, urging citizens to get fit. Seriously, how often do you see a minister dropping to the ground and doing 10 push-ups in his office, like it's nobody's business? Well, if you are one of his million followers on Twitter, it won't come as a surprise to you. © Twitter His inspiration is PM Modi and his energy. Wait! Did no one tell him that PM Modi has already revealed the secret to his energy? It is consuming 1 to 2 kg 'gaalis' every day! Jokes apart, the Olympic medalist recently posted a video of him sitting in his office and as he speaks to his followers, he starts doing push-ups. In fact, not only did he ask people to post pictures and videos on their work out on social media, he even challenged Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan and Saina Nehwal to join in. #HumFitTohIndiaFit ð®ð³ð Post pictures and videos of how you keep yourself fit and send a #FitnessChallenge to your friends on social media. Here's my video ðand I challenge @iHrithik, @imVkohli & @NSaina to join inð¥ pic.twitter.com/pYhRY1lNEm — Rajyavardhan Rathore (@Ra_THORe) May 22, 2018 This challenge is a part of Rathore's latest campaign #HumFitTohIndiaFit. While we were busy watching Rathore do push-ups, Hrithik already replied to him in the most kickass way possible. He wrote on Twitter along with a video of him cycling, “This is how I commute to my office everyday. Sitting static in a car is such a waste. Walk, cycle, jog, feel the earth, feel India. Get FIT!” This initiative makes me so proud ! Bravo @Ra_THORe #HumFitTohIndiaFit #FitnessChallenge this is how I commute to my office everyday. sitting static in a car is such a waste. Walk, cycle, jog, feel the earth, feel India ð®ð³ get FIT! pic.twitter.com/twoI1vna9c — Hrithik Roshan (@iHrithik) May 22, 2018 Saina Nehwal too responds to his fitness challenge and posts this video.

Here's my video ðand I challenge @RanaDaggubati @Pvsindhu1 and @GautamGambhir ðð pic.twitter.com/XEaJ9tPj2W — Saina Nehwal (@NSaina) May 22, 2018 And just when we were wondering how Virat Kohli will reply, he stunned everyone with this video. (2/2) This is my way to keep fit @Ra_Thore sir. I challenge @ShreyasIyer15 and @klrahul11 Let's bat together to get India fitter. #HumFitTohIndiaFit #FitnessChallenge #ComeOutAndPlay pic.twitter.com/2JSNsjadjR — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) May 23, 2018
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
