The week that was

Quote of the week: “I thought LeBron was a one shot deal but ap­par­ently the next guy's com­ing,” Golden State War­riors NBA coach Steve Kerr joins the Zion

Wil­liamson ap­pre­ci­a­tion so­ci­ety. The 198cm, 127km pow­er­house is an 18-year-old fresh­man who made his de­but for Duke Univer­sity this week. He’s got the power of LeBron James but the grace of bal­let dancer. Teacup storm of the week: Liver­pool were shocked

2-0 by Red Star Bel­grade in their Cham­pi­ons League clash but most of the anal­y­sis was on the coin-toss call of Liver­pool cap­tain James Mil­ner. Of­fered the red or blue sides of a coloured disc, Mil­ner called “blue” — the colour as­so­ci­ated with their arch-ri­vals Ever­ton. One red-blooded wit said famed Liver­pool coach Bill Shank­ley would have traded Mil­ner straight away for such an ab­hor­rent de­ci­sion.

Id­iot (or hero) of the week: Den­nis Galvin pro­posed to his girl­friend Kait­lyn Cur­ran while she was run­ning the New York Marathon this week. Cur­ran was about

26km into the 42km race when Galvin jumped the bar­rier and called her over, go­ing down on the knee and prof­fer­ing the ring. Cur­ran fin­ished the race wear­ing her new ring, but run­ners ev­ery­where were hor­ri­fied at Galvin’s thought­less in­ter­rup­tion. Whether the mar­riage is a sprint or a marathon will tell the story.
