I don't often read newspaper sports pages, but Australia's Hero (Ian Thorpe) announced his retirement from swimming, so... Good on him, by the way, choosing life instead of obligation. Or something. It's his own business, of course, but that doesn't stop the rest of us from passing judgement on it.

Yeah, we're horrible.

Anyway. The point. I think the following headline from aforementioned sports pages is so cute'n'clever, it deserves an award. From the tennis files, and in regard to "the former prodigy and Wimbledon finalist", Andrea Jaeger, who has decided to become a nun:

Short skirts are out and it's Miss Jaeger to serve


PS. While I'm giving out non-existent awards to people who will never even realise, Sunday's movie on Prime/the Seven Network, Touching the Void, had no ads running over the closing credits!! So impressed! So grateful!! I don't know whether they do this all the time now or not, but certainly hope so. Bravo again!
