With Osaka missing Wimbledon and now the US gymnast pulling
at 18:39 27 Jul 2021

out of competition at the Olympics citing mental health issues, is it the case that elite sports stars are nowadays being pushed so hard for perfection that it is more than the human mind and body can cope with? Especially when the frequency and intensity of not only competition, but also media scrutiny is taken into account. With an added layer of Covid bubbles and the restriction upon attendance by family and friends (their emotional support frameworks).

One of the problems with masks
at 09:34 18 Jul 2021

Is that they have been portrayed as an issue of "freedom", far outweighing the very minor inconvenience of carrying and wearing one for 90% of the population*.

Rather than a fact of life for the forseeable future, which would be a more responsible approach.

After all, car seatbelts weren't imposed as a temporary measure, with a promise of being relaxed once the death rates had come down enough.




* There will always be some exemptions, mostly on medical grounds.

This bad farce may not have long to run, now.

Ridiculous strength in depth
at 21:38 10 Jul 2021

England's second string/recovering injured ODI cricketers are good enough to win a series against a significant opponent such as Pakistan (and Stokes not even having made much of a contribution with bat or ball).

It was a win in 90 minutes. No extra time in the England players' legs. No penalties to ratchet up the nervous exhaustion.
