SPORTS UPDATE: THOSE BAD DAYS…

share on:

Don’t you just have those bad days, when nothing seems to go well for you? Most times we just shut down for that day and re-strategize and get ready for the next day. More often than not, we realize that, on the next day everything seems to go on smoothly and we wonder what happened the day before. Well, it’s just unexplainable.

I did not have a bad day, I had a bad weekend (very long weekend, if you consider the public holidays).

Thursday: Terrible day! My car got stuck in a ditch while trying to avoid the long traffic on Lekki-Epe Expressway. Don’t blame me, I had been on one spot for almost an hour and decided to follow other cars on the rough path along the express. I guess I learnt the hard way. My team the Minnesota Vikings lost the first game of the season (bad news). This weekend marks the beginning of the NFL season.

Friday: What a day, another great guy Tiger Woods lost his number one ranking to fellow American Phil Mickelson after a dismal performance at the BMW Championship. Picked the phone while driving just to tell my brother that I would call him back, before I could say Hello, 10 LASTMA officials had surrounded my car. I had to part with N1, 000 and drove off quickly. Please why is this happening to me?

Saturday: Another terrible day! Roger Federer (my hero) lost to Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals of the US OPEN, did I also mention that Manchester United dropt points against Everton despite a 3-1 lead. Why? Why? Why? Please find below, the results of all Barclay’s Premier League games played over the weekend:

Arsenal 4-1 Bolton

Everton 3-3 Man Utd

Fulham 2-1 Wolverhampton

Man City 1-1 Blackburn

Newcastle 0-2 Blackpool

West Brom 1-1 Tottenham

West Ham 1-3 Chelsea

Wigan 1-1 Sunderland

Birmingham 0-0 Liverpool

Later in the day Samuel Peters got demolished by Wladimir Klitschko in the WBO and IBF world heavyweight match. Samuel was probably born to be punished, no effort from the dude all through the fight. He goes home with 6 million dollars to treat his pains anyway.

Sunday: Why me? Louis Hamilton crashed out of the Italian Grand Prix on the first lap, Fernando Alonso went on to win the Italian grand prix with Jenson Button and Felipe Massa coming second and third respectively and I locked my keys in my car. How nice.

Rubbish weekend!!!
