[dropcap]B[/dropcap]log, I write with exciting news… Have you been sent a gleaming pair of moody-blues over the last ten years? Well, if so, they come from Leicester, and the headquarters of Max Italia, otherwise known in greyhound circles; as ‘Max Shoes’. We met Max at Walthamstow, where he used to pay bookies in new shoes (he just luuuurves a favourite!), and he’s been family ever since.Max owns a genuine, live-runner, in this year’s Greyhound Derby! Old Joe Golden. Into about 100/1 outright now, he won his first round, at Wimbledon, in style, and not yet two years of age; looks a most capable creature.In expert analysis, the great Charlie Lister has passed over the following opinion:It’s a GOOD dog, Max.And pro dog-punter, Jerry ‘Warfumstaw’ Croxford, considered the matter, and then said:It’s a PROPER dog, mate.I don’t know about you, but at 100/1, that’s enough for me to be getting involved! Max, if you get to the final of the Dog Derby: I’LL STAND NEXT TO THE TRACK AND CRY WITH HAPPINESS AND PRIDE.In other news:Star Sports = Possibly only 24 hours now, from a HUGE announcement. STAND ASIDE, THE BIG-TIMERS ARE COMING THROUGH.Over and out, B x
