The Man with a Cone on his Head
I do quite a bit of travelling for work. Markedly not as much of late, due to this rather challenging and long pandemic; but I still get to visit new places every now and then. Working in the sports television industry, I have been lucky enough to see some interesting places. My aim when visiting these various cities or towns all around the world has always been to take away a little information about how it came to be. A piece of its history if you will.
Black Like Me: Defeating The System
He stood before the crowd wearing a suit and tie, reminiscing about a time when the cost of what he wore was worth more than his mother’s yearly wages. Talking about the circumstances of his childhood, one hoped that his story was the exception to the rule. However, it was the reality for many people who lived in South Africa back then and continues to be a reality for many today. The man everyone had come to see was Herman Mashaba, a black entrepreneur telling the inspirational story of his life at a TedTalk. “(I was) brought up by a mother, who was really rather unfortunate because her husband died when I was two.”

Our world has been turned on its head; the world's economies are suffering and in every corner of the world health workers are battling to prevent more deaths from happening. The year 2020 has been rather horrendous to say the least. One of places worst affected by Covid-19 has been the United Kingdom with the death toll almost at the 40,000 mark. It is a number that might shock many but could have been so much worse, if it hadn't been for an unsuspected hero.
Without fans, it just isn't the same
It seems like a lifetime ago that we were allowed to hop onto aeroplanes and fly to cities that would show us a little additional piece of the world puzzle. It was a regular occurrence for me to travel all over the United Kingdom and various other locations in Europe because of the work that I do. I work in the sport television industry and the last destination that I got to enjoy visiting was the magnificent Rome. Thus my flashback encompasses the sad truth that we cannot gather together at sporting events anymore, something I most certainly will never take for granted again.
