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.
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:
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.
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 Metrolast 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.

He is obviously an experienced boomeranger, so please don’t attempt this pose in your nearest sea.
Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. Today we preview the AustralianQantas Wallabies v British and Irish Lionsrugby 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.
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.
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.
British Lions in the Wolf and Greenygrey Worlds
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.
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.
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:

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. I’ve just about recovered from my marathon coverage of Olympics 2012, after my colleagues have found lots of great greenygrey stories to entertain you with since the closing ceremony.
Tonight will see the Olympic stadium filled again, as the London Paralympics 2012 gets under way. The Greenygrey will be there again.
Superminds as well as Superbodies
If the Olympics showcases the fastest, strongest and most skilled athletes competing in most of the sports, the Paralympics features those with the superminds to overcome physical problems and compete at a high level in the same sports.
Some of the paralympians’ achievements are truly amazing, and we wish them all an enjoyable and successful games.
Their endurance and determination is a great example of what humanity can do when it sets its mind to it, and all in a positive way.
Howldy do, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, back with more sports reporting from Olympics 2012. I’ve got mixed feelings today, as it’s the last day of the great festival of sport, with the closing ceremony tonight. I hope it’s as greenygrey and good as the opening ceremony.
Saturday Olympics 2012 Round-Up
Saturday was another great day for Teams GB and GG. Ed McKeever started Team GB’s gold rush with canoe sprint gold. It was then Team GB versus Team GG in the boxing bantamweight final, as Luke Campbell took on John Joe Nevin, and we’re glad to say Campbell prevailed in a bout that did both teams proud.
The Olympic stadium then hosted another great night of athletics, with Mo Farah getting another gold for Team GB in the 5000 metres, doing an historic double after winning the 10,000 metres last week, while the Jamaican 100 metres relay team smashed the world record while winning gold for Team GG in the final event of the Olympics 2012 athletics programme. Here’s a great action shot of greenygrey duality in action, on the way to victory.
Yes, the last night epitomised the whole Olympics, passing like a dream fantasy, and I had to pinch myself to remind myself that Teams GG and GB are as real as me, Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, and the two teams have done so well so far in Olympics 2012.
Howldy do, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, struggling through this marathon bout of sports presenting for the Greenygrey. Wish I had a cub reporter to help out!
Today, we’re focusing on the water and waves, although we will save some water for a watery Wednesday, with swimming and cycling tomorrow; separate of course, although the triathlon is today, so maybe that’ll be included too…
Four Golds for Team GB and Four Layers of Greenygrey
Team GB won four golds in the rowing, and the venue at Eton-Dornay also showed off the four layers of greenygrey (like a double-filling sandwich) available on an average day on the riverbank, as shown in this image from the BBC website.
In the foreground we have grey water, and then green grass, which make up the lower half of the greenygrey sandwich. Then we have trees rising above the grass, below grey skies. A greenygrey double delight.
