There is a song from the 1990
movie Pretty Woman which starred
Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. The
name of the song is called King of
Wishful Thinking, by Go West. I
have to say that there are many
occasions when I do in fact feel
that I am the king of wishful
thinking; especially regarding
sports. I know that some of these
wishes are quite improbable and it
may seem that I am hoping beyond
hope, but on the other hand, some
wishes seem quite likely to come to
pass. So here goes.
First the improbable. In football,
The Netherlands will recover from
its current dreadful showing in the
Euro 2016 qualifiers and make it to
France next year. They will then go
on to erase bad memories of the
debacle in Poland 2012, where they
finished bottom-last in their group
and ultimately the whole tourna-
ment, by going all the way to the
final where they will beat long-
time rivals and current World
Champions Germany 3-2 in an
epic encounter to win their second
major title. Robben will score a
In tennis, an American other
than Serena Williams will go on to
win a Grand Slam singles title.
More surprisingly, the player will
be caucasian and male. Maria
Sharapova will play an entire match
In MMA Ronda Rousey will suf-
fer the first loss of her professional
career. Her opponent would be
Miesha Tate who, ironically, will
win by an arm-bar submission.
Cris Cyborg will admit that she is
transgender. She will then fight
Fallon Fox. The bout will end in a
draw. Many experts will hail it as
the best fight ever.
Boxing: Vitali Klitchsko will come
out of retirement to fight younger
brother Wladimir. They will both
agree to fight at the MGM in Las
Vegas. Wladimir will knock his big
brother out in the tenth round.
More likely to happen: A team
from Spain will once again go on
to win the Champions League. The
team will be either current cham-
pions FC Barcelona or Real Madrid.
England will once again be knocked
out of the Euro tournament at the
quarterfinal stage. Germany will
make at least the semifinals. Lionel
Messi and his Argentina team will
once again come up short at the
Serena Williams will break Mar-
garet Court s record for most
Grand Slam Singles titles won and
will be hailed as the greatest
female player of all time. She will
also win an Olympic gold medal.
The American men s and
women s 4x100m track and field
relay teams will once again drop
the baton in the Olympic final and
get disqualified. The Jamaicans will
win both races. Usain Bolt will win
three gold medals once again in
world record times.
The Chinese will dominate in the
diving and table tennis competi-
tions. Katie Ledecky will emerge as
the next big American Olympic
star in swimming with a very
impressive multiple gold medal
haul. She will be hailed as the
female Michael Phelps and her
image will appear on the Wheaties
cereal box because it is the break-
fast of champions. The Americans
will once again dominate in the
Olympics and end up on top in the
final medal count.
Host Brazil will have its best-ever
medal haul and end up in the top
five. They will finally win gold in
football in both the men s and
women s competitions. The more
impressive will be the latter as they
will finally defeat their great neme-
sis USA in an epic final at the
Maracana. Marta will emerge as the

When will our government begin to take pollution
Pollution isn't just about plastic bottles and dis-
carded boxes, it's about keeping as much green space
Yesterday I drove past yet another garden com-
pleted covered over with concrete. When are we going
to mandate that a portion of all gardens must be left
with soil that can absorb rain run off? Soon this so-
called Tropical Paradise of ours, will be one big, con-
It's time the housing ministry and the environmental
ministry put a stop to this concrete mess. Let's hire
some housing inspectors. People to walk through
neighbourhoods looking for any and all infractions.
They can look for clogged drains, trees growing
through power lines, yards piled high with junk.
Come on, it's time we started to fix the little things.
Let's have some pride in our surroundings.
Another merger? What will it be called this time,
SRM (Something Resembling Media?)
First, TTT and NBS merged into ICN. After AVM
died, that entity changed to NCC/TV.
Then ICN changed to NBN. Soon after NBN
changed to CNMG and NCC/TV changed to Our TV.
Parliament TV/Radio sneaked into the mix.
Mr Minister, please do some research on the local
media landscape. Forget the foreign models. Under-
stand that advertisers, the main source of income,
never truly support state-owned media. They already
End the foolishness now, privatise CNMG.
Let's start by fixing the little things
