…Until We Meet Again Some Sunny Day

There comes a point at which you have to admit that you’re over-stretching yourself. Some of you may already be aware of the fact that the Twohundredpercent podcast has been put on indefinite hiatus after 102 episodes, but this isn’t the only thing that’s changing around here. In addition to this, as of the start of next month the Twohundredpercent magazine will also be closing its doors. So, let’s take these two decisions one thing at a time, then.

Well, it was a few days late but we got there in the end. The second edition of the 200% e-magazine was emailed out to subscribers this morning, and this marks the end of a difficult few weeks for me personally.

On Fatherhood & Football

They don’t warn you, of course. From the very moment that a wave of “I think I’m late” washes over your significant other for the first time to the point at which you’re looking at a grainy black and white image of something that looks like a human being while a feeling of “somehow or other, I helped to make that” starts to occur to you, the very prospect of being a father is almost completely overwhelming.
