Live news, 25 years old

Spotted today on the otherwise-excellent BBC Sport website:

Gary and Gazza

So, live rolling sports news for the 17th April 2015... illustrated with a photograph of crisp-peddler Gary Lineker and troubled sometime-genius Paul Gascoigne during their shared time at Spurs. Lineker was there from 89 to 92, Gazza from 88 to 92... so the picture is around 25 years old.

Still, it's live news, so that's alright then...

Although really, why am I writing this, and why are you reading it (both of you)? Is this the best I can do? This blog continues to decline, much like its author.

Top shot, that one

RIP Richie Benaud...

Footnote: did you realise that, in the UK, all live televised cricket coverage is behind a paywall? Nothing is free to air. Does makes you wonder what effect this will have, not so much on old duffers like me (and you) but on kids growing up, learning the game. The England team of 2025 will be even worse than the current lot...
