FOR too long in every sport we?ve heard about success stories, great accomplishments, inspiring victories and the like. No one has bothered to ?celebrate? the miserable performances, debacles and tragedies?until now.
I?VE arrived late to my interview and I?m wracked with nerves. I hope I haven?t kept him waiting too long; I have no desire to get on the bad side of one of Rugby League?s future stars. Oh, but this is no up and coming player I?m meeting with today, and the manner of our engagement is, well, a little unconventional. With a flash of blue reminding me of my overflowing inbox, and the opening of the bothersome msn today (I really must switch that feature off) I find myself signed into my instant messenger. That?s right, this interview is happening online; the subject, Daniel, aka Roosterboy. He may not have the looks and vision of Tim Smith or be able to boast he?s a relation of Thierry Henry (the forummer, not the footballer), as Sonny Bill Williams proudly can, and by his own admission his athleticism rates as ?sub-par?, but when it comes to commentating, this kid has all the skills.
