SPORT IN PUBLIC: On the bus with Paolo Di Canio and John Terry (both looking like plonkers)

on in Uncategorized

Welcome to our weekly round-up of sporting clips. Like Sir Alex Ferguson on a scouting mission, we’ve carefully handpicked these videos to ensure success. Our aim is to get you out of the car and going to sporting events on public transport. All you have to do is leave the car keys at home, fire up your internet enabled devise and kick back on the bus and train while these clips keep you entertained…

In a week when tragedy hit the world of football with the death of 74 fans at a game in Egypt, now seems like as good a time as any to remind ourselves that really isn’t more important than life and death, whatever Bill Shankly might have said. Someone should tell that to Paolo Di Canio, who still seems to be taking it a little seriously…

Grim times for John Terry this week too, who will have to wait until July to clear his name of alleged racism against QPR’s Anton Ferdinand. This video (unfortunately not embeddable) we’ve unearthed probably won’t cheer him up much either…

Happier times for ex Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse, who scored on his return to the Premier League in mid-week. Here’s why QPR boss Mark Hughes decided to sign him…

With Cisse, and Arsenal coming back from dead against Aston Villa in the FA Cup, it’s been a week for comebacks. Here’s one of Sport In Public’s favourite comebacks of all time (and a, er, taxing watch for one Harry Redknapp – we’re here all week)…

And finally, a reminder that there is life outside of the Barclays Premier League from Africa. Even if we’re only really interested in the African Cup of Nations these days because so many British-based players bugger off to play in it. Check out this wonder goal from David Alvarez that sent Equatorial Guinea through to the kock out stages. As for where the defenders are, your guess is as good as ours…

Here comes the science bit…

Global Cool wants you to lead a green and happy life. This article can help you to be green by:

1. Using public transport rather than the car to get to whatever sporting event you’re attending. You wouldn’t be able to watch all these videos while you drive, now would you? Plan your journey here.
2. Even better… walk or cycle if it’s convenient.
3. Whatever device you’re using to watch those videos, make sure you only leave it plugged in for as long as it takes to charge, not over night.
4.  If you’re more of an arm chair fan make sure you turn the TV fully off after the action has finished. Standby is for losers.
