Weekend of Sport Satirical Comedy Highlights

There was a great weekend of sport in Britain, as the Tour de France riders departed on their long journey from Yorkshire to Paris via the south of France; the British Formula One Grand Prix roared around Silverstone, and the Wimbledon tennis finals took place. There was some great sporting action, and a lot of the highlights were in glorious greenYgrey.

Tour de France in Yorkshire

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, satirical comedy sports correspondent at the greenYgrey inspired by darts legend Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.

The crowds and weather surpassed even the brightest hopes in Yorkshire, as two and a half million people are thought to have cheered the Tour de France from its Grand Depart in Leeds to Harrogate, and York to Sheffield, on the first two stages of its long journey to Paris.

There were mostly blue skies through throughout the weekend in Yorkshire, but the BBC does lead with this old-fashioned greenygrey photo on its website. Perhaps it is fitting, as the tour travelled through Bronte country around the village of Haworth.

Tour de France

Today the Tour travels from Cambridge to London on the third and final stage in England, before continuing in France.

Team GB‘s defending champion and Team Sky rider Chris Froome is currently in fifth place, after Vincenzo Nibali won Stage Two utilising all the greenYgreying skills vital for  cycling in Yorkshire.

Lewis Hamilton Wins British Grand Prix for Team GG

Lewis Hamilton gave Britain a home victory as he won the British Grand Prix at Silverstone for Team GG/Mercedes.

Mercedes/Team GG teammate Nico Rosberg was disappointed that his race was ended by car trouble, but it had nothing to do with its greenygrey colour design.

Rosberg showed he didn’t blame the greenygrey when he appeared with it afterwards.

Wimbledon Men’s Tennis Final

Wimbledon provided wall-to-wall greenYgrey for a fortnight, but fizzled out at the end for greenYgrey interest.

Old Team GG stalwart and King of Clay Rafa Nadal struggled on grass again, while Team GB’s Andy Murray lost to new Team GG player GriGor Dimitrov.

So it was left to sometimes Team GG player Novak Djokovic to defeat the old vampire nemesis Roger Federer on a spectacularly greenYgrey centre court. Old legend Federer had done well to reach the Wimbledon final after a couple of years absence from a Grand Slam final.

Wimbledon Women’s Tennis Final

While it didn’t look like there was much to choose between Petra Kvitova and Eugenie Bouchard in the women’s singles final, the greenYgrey was 75% supporting Bouchard, but Kvitova won 75% of the play!

We were hoping to see Bouchard boo(merang) hard, but it wasn’t to be this time! Congratulations to Kvitova for winning her second Wimbledon title, and here’s Bouchard in a previous trophy-winning boomerang.

French Open – Canadian Grand Prix Satirical Comedy Sports

It was a mixed weekend for Team GG, which is perhaps fitting for a werewolf side. There was double tennis success at the French Open, but it was Red Bull‘s day at the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, satirical comedy sports correspondent at the greenYgrey, inspired by darts legend Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.

Maria Sharapova Wins French Open

Maria Sharapova added to her success at the Madrid Open last month, where she also found time to invent the gYgboo, with a thrilling three sets French Open final win over Simona Halep of Romania. It was her second French Open Women’s Singles title.

Sharapova celebrated with a boomerang to her family, friends and coaches watching in the crowd. She was wearing a nice pinkyorange outfit from her collection rather than greenygrey, but Roland Garros was greatly greenygrey.

Boomeranging at Roland Garros in the intense heat and wall-to-wall greenygrey they enjoyed this weekend needs practise, and this photo shows that Sharapova had been training hard for such circumstances.

Rafa Nadal Wins Record Title

Team GG’s original werewolf warrior, Rafa Nadal, won his fifth French Open title in a row, and a record-breaking ninth overall, to make him the undoubted all-time King of Clay.

Nadal beat Novak Djokovic in four sets, after losing the first one. While neither wore green or yellow, Nadal wore grey shorts and a grey bandanna, and that could have given him the edge.

They say every dog has its day, and it seems the same is true for red bulls. That’s because Red Bull got their first Formula One win for many a moon at the Canadian Grand Prix, as Ricciardo overtook Team GG/Mercedes’s Nico Rosberg just before the last lap.

It was the first win of the 2014 season for Red Bull, and they are still a long way behind Mercedes/Team GG in the constructors’ championship.

Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix – French Open Tennis

It was another Mercedes/Team GG double at the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix, while Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Alize Lim set the French Open agreenygrey on the first day.

Satirical Comedy Sports Report

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, satirical comedy sports correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by darts legend Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.

It was lucky grey for Rory McIlroy in the PGA Golf, and for Rotherham in the League One play-off final at Wembley, with the green grass providing some great greenygrey action, but today I only have time for the sports that have given the greenYgrey the greatest success over the years… in a French connection double.

Formula 1: Monaco Grand Prix

Yes, Team GG/Mercedes increased their lead at the top of the Formula 1 team championship after doing yet another 1-2 at the Monaco Grand Prix.

However, there was a change in the order, as Nico Rosberg beat Lewis Hamilton and also retook the lead in the drivers’ championship table.

There was some good news for old friendly foe original inspiration; along with Team GB; rivals Red Bull, as Daniel Ricciardo  took his first podium finish in third place.

Tennis: French Open

Roger Federer set the ball rolling at the French Open with a great gYgboo (greenYgrey boomerang) after comfortably winning his first round match.

Wearing grey, Federer found a green and yellow background to expertly pull off the gYgboo, and invoke memories of his glory days.

Fed-1

 

However, Federer’s performance proved to be only a prelude to the greenYgrey highlight of the day, as Serena Williams and Alize Lim provided a classic display of combined greenYgreying: when they shook hands at the end they probably achieved an upside down gYgboo x2, but we don’t have a photo to confirm it for you.

While the human world’s media was more interested in her sister Venus’s outfit, Serena embraced the greenYgrey rebranding in a bright yellow and grey outfit, and got in the full greenYgrey during breaks, using a green towel… and there was plenty of green courtside.

On the court, she combined well while defeating her good friend Lim, who wore a great greenYgrey top to match with the greenYgrey background and yellow ball.

Satirical Comedy Spanish Grand Prix and Madrid Tennis Sports Report

It was Viva Greenygreya on the weekend, as I saw some great greenygrey action in Spain at the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix and the Madrid Open tennis tournament.

Spanish Grand Prix

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by darts legend Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg did the 1-2 in the Spanish Grand Prix to make it another double-double since my last satirical comedy sports report, after the two Mercedes drivers finished in the same positions in the Chinese Grand Prix two weeks ago. Mercedes is of course known as Team GG in the greenYgrey world.

After the Spanish Grand Prix, Team GG via Mercedes has extended its lead over old inspirations and friendly foes Red Bull by over 100 points: 197 to 84.

Madrid Open Tennis

Tennis players warmed up for the French Open later this month in the Madrid Open. It was won by old Team GG stalwart Rafa Nadal, who is dominant on clay, which isn’t very greenygrey.

However, there was still lots of great greenygrey action, as the stadium made up for the surface.

Although werewolfish Nadal won the tournament, it was his old vampirish nemesis Roger Federer who ironically showed the best greenYgrey form.

Federer beating Stepanek at Madrid. Demotix.

Maria Sharapova won the Madrid Women’s Open, and celebrated in fine greenYgrey form.

There was another great day for Team GG in the Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday, as Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg finished first and second for another Mercedes 1-2.

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.

Formula 1 and Tennis Team GG Double Double

There was mucho celebrando in the Greenygrey world over the weekend, as Team GG’s Djokovic and Nadal played against each other in the Miami Masters final, while greenygrey Mercedes dominated the Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sports report hot off the press from the weekend’s top greenygrey sporting action.

It’s probably my best report since the last March 28th one, although some may argue it’s even better; greenygrey style; with that one including rugby union success, a Grand Prix first place, and tennis quarter-finalists; while this one has Grand Prix and tennis final 1-2s for Team GG.

Miami Masters Tennis

Novak Djokovic came out on top in Miami. Team GG analysts wondered whether this was a changing of the guard, but decided in the end that there’s still time for Nadal to bounce back to the top of the Team GG rankings.

Djokovic celebrated his victory in true greenygrey style:

Hamilton – Rosberg Win Malaysian Grand Prix

After Nico Rosberg won the first Formula 1 Grand Prix of the season for greenygrey Mercedes in Australia, Team GG went one better in Malaysia, as Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg did the double for Mercedes.

Last season’s champion, Sebastian Vettel, got some consolation for Team GG’s big rivals Red Bull by taking the final position on the podium with third place.

Here’s a great greenygrey photo of Hamilton driving to victory:

There was probably a lot more great greenygrey sporting action over the weekend, but the above is all I’m a-were of!

Tennis, Formula 1 and Rugby Union Satirical Comedy Sports

The motor racing, rugby union and tennis worlds have been lit up in greenygrey in recent weeks, and I’ve been straining at the leash to get a look in at the Greenygrey; to be able to update you.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, with a Greenygrey comedy satire sports report.

Miami Masters Tennis

Tennis has been a great servant to promoting the Greenygrey, with Rafa Nadal possibly the greatest ever Team GG player.

Nadal has been on about 50% greenygrey top form at the Miami Masters Sony Open, with the tournament to match:

Whereas newcomer to Team GG, Novak Djokovic, has been on 100% form:

Ireland Win Six Nations Rugby Union

Ireland won the rugby union Six Nations title in Europe, and wore a greenygrey shirt while winning it. It was their captain Brian O’ Driscoll‘s last season, so it was like a kind of Greenygrey’s Rambles fairytale for him getting the title and man of the match award while wearing a greenygrey shirt in his last international game.

Here’s O’ Driscoll after the game:

Mercedes’s Rosberg Wins Australian Grand Prix

Motor racing has also played a big part in Greenygrey sport, what with the tracks usually very greenygrey, and the Red Bull team partly influencing Team GG.

The new season reached new heights of greenygreyness in the first grand prix, as Nico Rosberg won the Australian Grand Prix in Mercedes’s greenygrey car. This photo captures the new greenYgrey brand in all its glory:

Good luck to all the sportspeople this weekend, and that includes our old inspirations and rivals Red Bull, who have been having a tough time due to Formula 1 rule changes.
