My Favorite Word

When working in sports, your brain is alive all day long.  When you earn a living doing something that you may do for free were life like that – there is a constant ‘brain-use’ – with ideas popping up, with thoughts growing, with plans afoot – it’s like Picadilly Circus / Times Square / Muscat City Centre Mall at 9pm (delete based on your “busy location” location) in the old grey matter.

Generally – sports does not have the history of business practice common in other fields, does not have the same level of investment (or belief) in systems that are sacred to the normal “suited and booted”, and does not place the same value in working to common business ideals.  “It’s Sport”.  With a professional approach only really in existence for the past 30 years (and often far less) – it is no wonder that things often do not work as they should.

So my plans to increase my blog output failed to happen.  My bad.  To be honest - my double bad.  I would apologies and say things are going to improve but you have heard it all before – and as they say action is louder than words (expect perhaps if you a Lumberjack) – so watch this space.

Today – the Oman National team take on Wigan Athletic in one of the most unlikely match ups in my career to date.  London Broncos Rugby League taking part in the Dubai Union 7’s (little did I know 10 or so years ago that I would be back in the region full time.  The Broncos were my life back then – many lessons learnt since then!).
