Good Year for Sport?

After last weekend's mad last corner action at the grand prix, it made me realise how mad sports fans can be.

One of the biggest UK TV audiences for a grand prix, had the ultimate 'grandstand finish' and for two days, there was nothing else on the news apart from Hamilton's win, until they moved on to coverage of the US election. Had it rained 30 seconds later, the headlines would have been very different - arguably the greatest first two seasons of all time, for any sport regardless.

In an Olympic year, and one in which Britain's athletes did themselves proud, the BBC Sports Personality of the Year will be one to watch - especially as it has put most millionaire footballers, who failed to make it to Euro 2008, in the shade.

A classic year for British sport, and one thet has served me well. Thanks to the generosity of F1Wolf, I have won an iPod and now the star prize of three bottles of Champagne thanks (perhaps) to Timo Glock.

2008 - a good sporting year? I'll drink to that!
