    Hey Carlos,

    I apologise greatly for this mass, impersonal, selfish, egotistical plugging for reads, but I recently interviewed the first ever American to score for Arsenal, Danny Karbassiyoon. Shyam Parthasarathi interviewed him back in October 2008, and now he's making a B/R comeback as I grill him with even more questions! It's one of my best pieces of journalism to date in my view, please check it out if you have a spare moment.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Carlos,

    I just wrote a piece about the Winter Olympics. While it's centered around Team USA, I though you might enjoy reading it, especially considering you have blogged about winter sports in the past.

    I'd love to hear what you think.

    Thanks,

    Ash

    Hey Carlos,

    Yet another UWCC title match has been and gone, and Roma are STILL the Champions! This match included a sensational return to the goals for a World Cup winner and equal the biggest win of the season so far!

    It also look ahead to the mouth-watering Roma vs Juventus tie next weekend! A prediction competition, match report, and video highlights all in one place, what more could you want ;-)

    If that sales pitch didn't persuade you, could you just take a look for me please!

    PS. Don't forget to vote on the poll!

    I am planning to do a Boxing rankings article every month, exclusively for B/R. But I need you and other respected writers help for the rankings process. I need you to send me your top ten rankings and I will compile them into one B/R rankings list. 10 points for the number one ranked boxer. 9 for the two number boxer. All the way down to one point for the number ten boxer on your list. I will compile the rankings into one of my articles and give credit to each writer who participated, and links to their pages. This will make sure for an unbiased rankings each month. Just send me your rankings if you are down.
