Chess and the Comfort Break
Martin Writes..
Posted by Martin "Old Tat" Kelner on Dec 31, 2021 - 12:59:12 PM
Here's a piece I wrote for the Guardian's Screen Break column about sport on TV in October 2006, covering chess, tennis (briefly), and rugby league.  This, and similar old tat, is reprinted in my book Wrestling In Honey, available in very few good bookshops.  But it's on the Amazon and Waterstones websites, and boutique bookshop Philip Howard Books in Leeds have signed copies....

Why Wrestling In Honey?

We're All Going To Die
Martin Writes..
Posted by Martin Kelner on Mar 15, 2020 - 6:40:05 PM
Every month I write a column for the half-decent rugby league magazine 40-20, not necessarily about rugby league, but just to amuse me & one or two other followers of the fine sport.  I've been doing this for a few years now, but don't usually post them because, as I say they're very much just for amusement only.  But I thought this was rather prescient.  Written on March 3rd, I exclusively revealed that we're all going to die...
