It’s about throbbing calves and cramps at midnight that are strong enough to wake the dead. It’s about getting out the door and running when the rest of the world is only dreaming about having the passion that you need to live each and every day with. It’s about being on a lonely road and running like a champion even when there’s not a single soul in sight to cheer you on.

  60. You’re on your feet. Maybe you’re phoning, or combing your hair, or taking off your makeup. Plant your bare feet about twelve inches apart and grip the floor with them, keeping your knees rigid. Then try to push your feet together – but without letting them budge. Try as hard as you can. This is a wonderful example of getting muscles to work against each other and it’s a tremendous thing for the inner thighs – they are another terribly flab-prone area. Joan Crawford

I don’t know anybody on the team, they have nothing to do with me… why am I here and applaud? It does not make any sense.” But the point is, it does make sense: It’s a way of building up irrational attitudes of submission to authority and group cohesion behind leadership elements.

  116. Whichever way you look at it, the story of soccer in Australia is not a happy one. It is as a vast mess of shattered dreams, colonised tribes and forgotten heroes, splayed out like a Jackson Pollock painting across the landscape of Australian history. It is a story that haunts rather than comforts. ‘There are a lot of broken people in the game,’ Michael Cockerill once said. ‘Yet it’s still the sport with the most blue sky in Australia. Even after everything, it’s still only scratched the surface’. Joe Gorman
