World Athletics and Werewolf of Year, van Wolfswinkel

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. It sure has been an exciting week and weekend of sport, and we have the best of the greenygrey werewolf action here for you.

The World Championships athletics was great this week, with fabulous performances by some of the world’s best in Moscow. Shelley-Anne Fraser-Pryce, Usain Bolt and Mo Farah all won two individual golds, and the former two also won relay golds too.

Bolt and Fraser-Pryce of course starred for Team GG at London 2012, and new Team GG member Nick Symmonds collected a silver in the Moscow 800 metres.

Together, they showed the style, speed and stamina needed for a world-class werewolf.

Premier League Kicks Off

The English Premier League also kicked off this weekend, and there was one story that totally over-the-moon eclipsed all others in the Greenygrey world.

Yes, Ricky van Wolfswinkel settled in immediately to his new greenygrey home; and also home to Alan Partridge; scoring the crucial second equalising goal on his debut for the Norwich canaries in their 2-2 draw with the Everton toffeemen.

If he continues in this vein he looks a certainty for the werewolf of the year award; once dominated by my human parallel and darts legend, Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.

Women’s Euro Football Final and Olympics 2012 Anniversary Games

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. Yes, it’s really me today. I was of course cited as the correspondent responsible for yesterday’s blog, when it was really ol’ Wolf Whitzer.

Newsroom Time Pressures

Our news editing team are under severe time pressures, trying to finish the job as quickly as possible to enjoy more time in the sun, so it is understandable.

Although the newsroom got all the science and reference links right, they also let ‘several’ appear twice in the last paragraph.

We have now rectified those mistakes, so on with the sport…

European Women’s Football Championships

Tonight sees the Germany v Norway women’s football championships final. At Greenygrey sports we are of course adamantly Norwegian, um, I mean neutral… like Sweden in World War Two, but that didn’t stop Germany invading… sorry, about that, no more Basil Fawlty World War Two references impressions (the YouTube video is embedded at the end though, in the knowledge that most Germans find it very funny).

We’re hoping for a friendly game providing a good example of women’s football tonight, and it looks set for a great spectacle within the gorgeously greenygrey Friends stadium in Solna, Stockholm; as shown in Sally Nugent‘s report this morning:

Olympics 2012 Anniversary Games

There was another great greenygrey scene at the London U.K. Olympics 2012 Anniversary Games on Friday night, as the sunset brought the best out of the greenygrey:

A star of Team GG in Olympics 2012, Usain Bolt, made a dramatic greenygrey entrance to the stadium:

Later, there was a great debut Team GG performance by Nick Symmonds, as he won the 800m:
