What a month!

January was probably one of the looongest months  I have ever experienced.

It had its ups and downs especially when it comes to financial difficulties. Like I was so broke after January 15, I could not wait to get paid – a very humble experience for me.

Despite my personal struggles  with Januworry – for sport the month proved to set the tone for the rest of the year.

Here are some of my sport highlights for the first month of 2017.

  1. Serena Williams  winning her 23rd Grand Slam title in Australia. In doing so,  the American  surpass Steffi Graf’s Open era mark and secured her seventh Melbourne title.  Returning to the world number in her custom made Aid Jordans 1s… now isn’t that cute….

2.  The Springbok Sevens winning the Wellington leg of the World Rugby Sevens Series. In Cape Town the Blitbokz narrowly lost out on lifting the trophy. England’s heroic performance in the final put a stop to much of the homefans proceedings… Fast forward to January 30, 2017 the Blitzboks redeem themselves and pinched the Wellington Sevens trophy in style. They cruised past tournament favourites Fiji and extended their lead on the overall standings.

3. Eddie Jones’ black eye at the Six Nations Launch. The England head coach Eddie Jones was spotted with a nasty blow and when ask by the media how he obtained the bruising, the coach stated that he slipped in the bathroom at his home. However later that day the coach indicated the injury had arisen during England’s recent training camp in Portugal.

“We’ve had a bit of fun in the Algarve, we’ve had a really good training camp,” he said in a TV interview.

The question remains: Did  the England boss slip or was he pushed?

As we head into February, come we hope the month of Love brings us more action. In the industry where the fans knows more than any experts….

I mean there is the Rugby Six Nations, Super Rugby, FA Cup and Uefa Champions league and all the rest to look forward too.

Lilly… fresh

Keep it cute!
