NBA podcaster Tom Read gave me the inspiration for this article when he tweeted that he was there in person to see Carmelo Anthony’s 37-point explosion at the 2012 London Olympics.

After 10 rounds of the NRL the Bulldogs were sitting atop the competition ladder, fully deserving of all the kudos coming their way. The skill and size in the Dogs forward pack was proving too hard to contain, while Trent Hodkinson and Josh Reynolds were doing such a great job leading the team, they were […]

Boomers should aim for silver at the 2016 Olympics

Boomers should aim for silver at the 2016 Olympics

6 Aug 2014

The Australian men’s basketball team should have their sights set on a silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The Boomers have the talent to not just win their first medal at a senior men’s basketball tournament, but should aspire to finish in second place behind the mighty United States. Heck, anything can […]
