Sportsmanship and irresponsibility

Nice to have a story about sportsmanship and doing the right thing for once :

Leicester give Forest a 'free' goal.

Leicester allowed Nottingham Forest's keeper to score in order to reclaim the one goal lead they had when the match was abandoned after a Foxes player had a heart attack at half time a couple of weeks ago.

I was a bit surprised about this :

Paul Colingwood nips to a lap-dancing club.

I do hope this is just a prank the other players have played on him...Nowadays they aren't just people turning up to play for England, they are centrally contracted professionals. They are supposed to be ambassadors for English cricket...if they don't want the responsibility that comes with it they can turn in their test numbers.

I don't expect them to be living like monks but the England cpatain shouldn't be going out to a club of any description the night before a game let alone a bloody lap dancing bar. Very shabby indeed, it says a lot about the team's attitude if the skipper is doing this...especially after what happened in the World Cup.

Away from sport this is certainly a bit too "x-files" for comfort :

Scores ill in Peru 'meteor crash'
