Hello everyone at Bleachers! And remember the role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.
My name's Steven Conrad and I'm half Kiwi half Irish. Writing has always been a passion for me and sport helps fuel that passion! I hope to travel the world, write, change people's views and experience the beauty of life and nature that people so often forget about
Come on the All Blacks!- the World Cup in 2011 is yours for the taking, just don't choke like you normally do! Dan Carter the world of rugby need your return. Your speed, acceleration, strength, side-step, fend-off, passing and kicking ability, spacial awareness and supreme ability to exploit the gaps are things of beauty! Roger Federer, you are just so damn sophisticated, suave and skillful, the greatest tennis player in history. 15 Grand Slams and you have given it the official stamp! To Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus is a superior golfer and you will never beat his Major record. Btw Tiger lighten up, don't be such a bore! Iniesta is best player in the world, followed closely by Messi. The Real Revolution will not usurp Catalonia majesty! Barca09- Footballling World Supremacy. Pep Guardiolo is God! Cricket is an awful funny game - nobody is ever in the stadiums watching a test match. The most boring sport, but 20/20 isn't so bad! Richard Gasquet has the greatest single-handed backhand in men's tennis, unfortunately he has the mental strength of a five-year-old and takes cocaine.
Here are some great quotes, enjoy!( all Leo Tolstoy - greatest novelist in literature history)
"A writer is dear and necessary for us only in the measure of which he reveals to us the inner workings of his very soul.”
“Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.”
“Pure and complete sorrow is as impossible as pure and complete happiness"
"If you want to be happy, be"
"Without knowing what I am and why I am here, life is impossible"
"If we let reason rule are lives, the possibility of life is destroyed"
