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.

National Lottery Olympics 2012 Anniversary Run and Ashes

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. After I’ve had a quiet summer compared to last year, I was awoken into action this morning by the National Lottery Olympics Anniversary Run featured on the Andrew Marr Show.

I then remembered this summer’s Ashes, Arishes, Oz Lions series and Murray winning Wimbledon (the Wombles told us they have finally cleaned up all the mess!).

Olympics 2012 Greenygrey Games

Olympics 2012 has fondly become known as the Greenygrey Games in the Greenygrey world, or 3G-2012 for short. So it was fitting this morning that one of the heroines in London last year, Victoria Pendleton, joined Team GG for this morning’s anniversary run:

Yep, it is now a year since I was so overworked and rightly overexcited!

Ashes Cricket Series Reminder of AusRuIcket Arishes

While last year was an amazing summer of sport in Blighty, this year’s has been pretty good too. A couple of greenygrey highlights were the thrilling Lions (Wollions for those reading this in the Greenygrey world) series win in Oz and Murray winning at greenygrey Wimbledon.

Now, the Ashes cricket series between Blighty and Oz is reminding us of the AusRuIcket Bonzo’s bagpipes Arishes played for by little penguins on Kangaroo Island since the Wereweolf of Ozzers visited there; immortalised in the epic comedy satire classic you all know and mixed-up vole now.

It was a thrilling first Ashes test, and Blighty looks to have the second test sown up to take a 2-0 series lead. We haven’t found much greenygrey action at the cricket, but then again, we haven’t been looking very closely.

Finally, we’d like to welcome Ricky van Wolfswinkel to Blighty. Ricky van Wolfswinkel is no stranger to the Greenygrey world of course, having been featured on this website when playing for Sporting Lisbon.

So we were thrilled to read that van Wolfswinkel signed for Norwich City, and will be playing for them in the Premier League next year; and in Norwich’s greenygrey ground!

Warm wishes to Wolfswinkel from the werewolf world.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams. As regular readers know, we love our wolf names at the Greenygrey. So last week we were thrilled to see that there was a Dutch footballer called Ricky van Wolfswinkel playing for Sporting Lisbon versus Manchester City.

We thought we’d wait until after the return leg last night to publicise it on the Greenygrey, and then he scored the goal which eventually took Lisbon through the cup tie.

It’s good to see the wolfs doing well…
