Tom Maher – who’s Secretary of the Tipp CCC – says the problems playing fixtures over the past few months show why it would be well worth investing in these kind of facilities.He also thinks they would be of great use to county teams who do a lot of their most important preparatory work in November and December.Tom believes that action needs to be taken in order to meet the challenges posed by the predicted weather patterns of the future.
“It felt like a nightmare as I was getting chased,” he said.“It was a never ending nightmare. I could not understand why nobody was going past me.“Even when I crossed the line I could not believe it.“The others killed themselves and they were already dead in the last 100m.“I was like a witch casting a spell on them.”Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 London, United Kingdom | AFP | Pierre-Ambroise Bosse loves gambling and on Tuesday he rolled the dice and won the biggest prize of his life, the 800 metres world title, to give France their first ever gold in the event.The 25-year-old, who had finished a valiant if frustrating fourth in last year’s Olympic final, seized the initiative with 150 metres to go with a stunning burst passing Kipyegon Bett and race favourite Nijel Amos and held on to take the tape first from fast-finishing Pole Adam Kszczot.“I am a gambler, I love going to the casino,” said Bosse.“And today I just gambled, I put everything on the red, even my last Euro. So hopefully, this is also for luck in love.”Bosse, who is renowned for his offbeat character and addressed his cat ‘Rabs’ after finishing outside the medals in Rio by telling him to go the fridge and drink a beer for him, said he thought he had cast a spell over his rivals as no one threatened him down the final 100m.

AUBREY BRUCEPittsburgh and the western Pennsylvania region was really a sports Mecca last weekend beginning with the opening of the Pittsburgh Steelers training camp at St. Vincent’s College in Latrobe, Pa.The Meadows Racetrack and Casino featured “Madness at The Meadows” professional boxing in an outdoor setting that even an impending thunderstorm could not stop, although I am reasonably certain that at least two of the fighters wish that their bouts had been postponed.AT WAR—Dhafir “No Fear” Smith and Tommy Kapensky (Photos by Julio Torres)Last but not least, Pittsburgh got a taste of some serious soccer as two of our biggest allies from across the pond, the Manchester City soccer club from the United Kingdom faced off against the A.C. Milan Club hailing from Italy. Since everyone loves a good afternoon “spaghetti western” let’s call the three events, the good, the bad and the ugly.OUT—Jason Bergman KO/TKOFirst the good. The Steelers opened up training camp last Friday and as we all know in all training camps every team is a Super Bowl contender, until the regular season proves otherwise. Steelers GM Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin seems to have filled most of the needs of the team at least theoretically, that may propel the team beyond an average 8-8 regular season mark and position the Steelers to make a run deep into the post season. As far as the offense and defense is concerned the questions are at running back, wide receiver, linebacker and the offensive and defensive lines may have been addressed, at least on paper anyway.
