Sporting thoughts

Watched the end of the Germany/Turkey game last night (Euro 2008 Semi-final - Football, for those not interested). I don't know why it is, but I always support the underdog. Maybe because I'm British. So I was pleased when Turkey equalised in the 86th minute. They always seem to score at the last minute. But blow me if Larm didn't score the winner for Germany right at the end! Heartbreak for Turkey. Out-last-minuted. Actually, I find it impressive, these teams who won't give up. Turkey's been one. Lesson for us all perhaps, not just athletes.

Respect, by the way, to local girl, Jessica Harrison who's been selected for the Olympics in the Triathlon for France, I heard today. THAT is a real endurance test. Go for it!
