Very, very nice - Nicky Whelan (appropriate I have a good Australian girl up too…)Got a lil’ bit of computer time… so I thought it only fitting that I post an Australian take on sports (given that’s where I am at the moment)…

So, today’s top sports stories in Australia are:

  • How is the health of Test Cricket?… [The AgeTest Cricket versus the One Day Game…
  • Mitchell Johnson – loves a fight (cricket)… [The AgeJohnson loves a scrap – and look out Tait!
  • Tennis players face jail over match-fixing… [The AgeAbsolutely.  Tennis Australia & the Victorian Police open up a joint investigation…
  • Baseball in the US – it’s a rat-race, and the rats are winning… [The AgeHopefully, changes will occur soon in MLB…
  • Melbourne flagged for a Super 14 team with Argentinean players? (rugby)… [The AgeThe proposal is actually a hybrid team of players from Australia & Argentina…
  • Australia to face swimmer-exodus?… [Herald SunBritain’s throwing money at Australian swimmers to leave Oz…
  • Soccer/Football – World Cup Qualifiers: Pim to call up Europe-based players… [Herald SunThis could get interesting… hopefully, they answer the call.
