Federal Minister for Sport Bridget McKenzie has announced an immediate Super Duper Royal Commission into Australia’s horrific performance at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.
It’s a FIFA World Cup year!
The Greatest Sporting Event on Earth is around 120 days away, and we’re sending the Australian squad for the fourth consecutive tournament after the hellish saga that was Asian qualifying.

Not so much.

Because the series will be so much more INTERESTING once she’s gone.
You see, George, the “Endgame” of the series is what fascinates me most.
Sure, the plots and machinations that take us there are interesting, the history and character developments are interesting…
With Season 7 of Game of Thrones nearly upon us, it’s time to ask the obvious questions:
