The Team GG double double, after a Mercedes 1-2 in Malaysia too, was made all the sweeter by our oldest rivals, and most inspirational company Red Bull, only reaching sixth place in the race.

Kelly Gallagher Wins Sochi Gold Super G and Opening Ceremony

The Sochi Winter Paralympics 2014 has started brilliantly for Team GB and Team GG, and reached great brilliance levels this morning when Kelly Gallagher won gold for Team GB in the visually impaired Super G with the help of her guide Charlotte Evans.

Kelly Gallagher and Charlotte Evans’s 12G Performance

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sports report, containing real feelings of awe and inspiration at the achievement and bravery of the Paralympic athletes.

Yes, with two Gs in Gallagher’s surname; the Super G meaning two Gs (when Green and Grey are together) in the Greenygrey world, the G of gold, the G of Team GB, the GG of Team GG, and the two Gs times two in the greenygrey colours worn by Kelly Gallagher and Charlotte Evans that makes it a 12G performance by my reckoning. 

Kelly Gallagher and Charlotte Evans winning gold.

Sochi Paralympics Super G Results

There’s a lot more Super G at the Paralympics. Anna Schaffelhuber won the Women’s Super G Sitting for Germany. Claudia Loesch won silver for Austria. Laurie Stephens won bronze for Team USA, and Anna Turney of Team GB just missed out on a medal finishing fourth… at least she made it onto the Greenygrey!

Marie Bochet and Solene Jambaque did the double for France in the Women’s Super G Standing, with Stephanie Jallen of Team USA taking bronze.

Akira Kano and Taiki Morii did the double for Japan in the Men’s Super G Sitting, with Caleb Brousseau of Canada taking bronze.

Akira Kano is on his way to gold in the men's super-G sitting class at the Sochi Paralympics on March 9. The Paralympics are being held in Sochi, Russia, in the same venues as the recently completed Winter Olympic Games.
Akira Kano greenygreying to gold.

Markus Salcher and Matthias Lanzinger did the double for Austria in the Men’s Super G Standing, with Alexey Bugaev of Russia taking bronze.

Jakub Krako of Slovakia took gold in the Men’s Super G Visually Impaired , with Mark Bathum of Team USA taking silver. Mac Marcoux of Canada took bronze.

Good luck to all the competitors, and I hope the Sochi 2014 Winter Paralympics continues to proceed as greenygrey greatly as the opening ceremony:

Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics Sports Report

The Sochi Winter Olympics was set alight in double gold yesterday, as Tina Maze of Slovenia and Dominique Gisin of Switzerland shared gold as they finished with exactly the same time in the women’s downhill skiing. 

The Slovenian team put on a great greenygreying display at the Sochi opening ceremony, and were rewarded with their first Winter Olympics gold medal… and the first for Team GG.

Historic Women’s Downhill Double Gold

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a wacky wordplay comedy sports report from Winter Olympics 2014 in Sochi, Russia.

Tuesday was JJ-Day in the U.K. as Jenny Jones won Team GB‘s first Winter Olympics medal on snow by taking bronze in the slopestyle snowboarding.

Wednesday was undoubtedly GG-Day at Sochi though, with the historic double gold for Maze and Gisin.

Moreover, Gisin’s team-mate Lara Gut also made it a  Swiss GG by taking bronze.

Sochi 2014 Greenygrey 

There hasn’t looked like there’s much greenygrey at Sochi, with snow and clear skies dominating, but underneath the surface the greenygrey is undoubtedly there.

Here’s twelve more fun greenygreying photos from an image search on Google:

Australia Neknominate and Boomerangit Crazes

While there is no doubt that the satirical comedy epic travel quest Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps has put Australia on the map for the outside world, is there any evidence of it leaving a lasting cultural impact on the land down under.

Australia Still Winning Cricket and Boomeranging

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sort of sports report. It seems that as long as the Australia cricket team are winning, the boomerang will continue, and having just won the one-day series, it looks as if the boomerang will continue for a little while more.

In fact, there is now a boomeranging kangaroo on the insignia of the baggy green, personified by Brian in the Werewolf of Oz.

It is surviving in Australia parallel with the more dangerous and unruly neknominate.

Boomeranging Rides Wave of Neknominating

Unfortunately, it is neknominate; which revolves around beer-drinking;  that is grabbing the headlines, such as in the Metro last Wednesday.

Fortunately, a surfer combined a beer-necking with the golden oldie craze greenygreying and a new development in boomeranging.

This meant that the first documented photo of a double one-armed twisting boomerang made it into the British media. Moreover, the surfer showed great skill to vary the boomeranging arms between the closed-armed boomerang seen above, and the open-armed boomerang below.

A new social media craze in which people are encouraged to film themselves skolling alcoholic drinks, including whole bottles of spirits  taken from www.facebook.com/neknominatevideos

He is obviously an experienced boomeranger, so please don’t attempt this pose in your nearest sea.

British and Irish Lions V ex-Australian Qantas Wallabies

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. Today we preview the Australian  Qantas Wallabies v British and Irish Lions rugby union first test. It is predominantly written for a human audience in Britain and Ireland about a rugby match being played in Australia, and for readers in the present with reference to the animal spirit past and global branding future.

After writing this blog focusing on animal names I checked the British and Irish Lions tour website and found out for the first time that Australia is now known as Qantas.

That should hopefully dent the patriotic Aussies’ confidence; their journey towards a republic being overtaken by global branding!

The Greenygrey global brand can unequivocally declare that it has no plans to take over the British and Irish part of the British and Irish Lions name.

Train of Thought Reversed

Before continuing on the British and Irish Lions train of thought, the  Greenygrey apologises to Lynyrd Skynyrd and you readers for calling the Railroad Song the Railway Song in yesterday’s blog notes, after adding it because Marc Latham hadn’t; and not putting it in italics.

The Greenygrey still considers yesterday’s blog a classic, but not a completely perfect one. I think it sees now that this book writing and editing lark isn’t as easy as it looks.

British and Irish Lions v Australian Qantas Wallabies

Tomorrow sees the first of three rugby union matches in the human land of Oz; Australia; with the Australian Qantan(?) Wallabies hosting the British and Irish Lions.

On paper (or African plains) Lions should beat Wallabies, but the Wallabies have home advantage on the edge of the Aussie (Qantie?) outback, so they may be able to out-hop the Lions, and it is therefore hard to predict the result.

The Lions have been touring all over Oz, like our very own werewolf Grey, and even farther than Marc Latham did in 1989, when he saw the Lions win the deciding test in Sydney.

The Lions were doing well until meeting the Brumbies this week. I thought the Brumbies were bees descended from Birmingham, England (people from Birmingham are colloquially known as Brummies) at first, but apparently they are Aussie humans.

For those reading this in the British wolf spirit world, the British and Irish Lions are what you know as the British and Irish Wolves.

For those in the Greenygrey world, the British and Irish Lions are what you know as the British and Irish Wollions.

Not Winning that Counts, it’s Taking Part in Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. At the Greenygrey, it’s not the winning that counts, it’s the taking part in greenygrey… or playing amongst glorious greenygrey.

And we noticed a great coming together of greenygrey venue and greenygrey kit at the recent Shanghai Masters tennis tournament. We just looked up some photos from the tournament; bit late to be topical we know, but it’s been a busy Greenygrey news week; and the Denver Post has a great selection of photos from the men’s tournament. So we just have men’s photos below, which is due to us finding enough material there, rather than sexism or sexuality. And here they are:

Jo Wilfried-Tsonga looks overjoyed to be playing amongst greenygrey.

 

 Is Tomas Berdych getting into the greenygrey spirit of things, or trying to camouflage himself? Nice greenygrey design anyway, and thanks to Tomas for wearing our colours.

 

Are Petzchner and Butorac re-enacting the Werewolf of Oz scene when Green and Grey were reunited during the Battle below Bass Strait?

 

Kubot takes a time-out with the greenygrey.

Thanks to the Shanghai Masters for all the great greenygrey photo opportunities, the players for taking part in glorious greenygrey, and the Denver Post for sharing the photos.

Greenygrey in Premier League sponsored by Pricey Ethical Supermarket

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, now fully recovered sports correspondent at the Greenygrey after the incredible summer of Olympic sport.

Greenygrey Goalie Kits in Premier League

Last season, Rob Green helped West Ham to promotion from the Championship to the Premiership wearing a glorious greenygrey goalie kit. Green moved on in the summer, and West Ham have changed strip, but the Greenygrey will play in the Premiership thanks to Reading FC, which has opted to kit out their goalies in this wonderful greenygrey combo this season:

It is fitting that they are sponsored by Waitrose, as the supermarket chain has a greenygrey colour combo logo layout design:
