The Big Year je severnoamerički ptičarski triatlon: unutar vremenskog (kalendarska godina) i prostornog ograničenja (kontinent), cilj je videti što više ptica i oboriti prethodni rekord. 1998 su tri takmičara napravili pauzu u svojim životima direktora korporacije, građevinca i programera, i upustili se u trku s kraja na kraj Amerike, od flaminga na Floridi do severnih sova na Aljasci.

Union blues

Mark Pullen RSS / 15.05.2012. u 11:40

Growing up in east Hull, rugby union was always something alien, but also something distant. Indeed, I think it was only when a PE teacher at Andrew Marvel High revealed that he played union for one of the village teams around Hull that I realised the sport even existed in my home county. Here in Serbia, however, the union is like a wasp feeding on the sweet league.

My first run-in with its loyalists came in the summer of 2011 when I got a phone call from a guy I hardly knew who used to play for the team: "Mark, some guys will turn up at your training session tonight. They're good guys and they want to form a Red Star rugby union club. Please be nice to them."

Myth busting rugby league style

Mark Pullen RSS / 23.04.2012. u 00:10

Today saw a great step taken towards bridging the gap between the Red Star rebel alliance and the Dorcolian empire - or at least overcoming the myth of Dorcol's invincibility (cue Imperial March).

Yes Red Star lost 46-16 (almost mirroring Hull KR's result over London this afternoon), but that's a lot better than the 106-6 thrashing they gave us last time out. In fact, that's probably Dorcol's smallest winning margin in any domestic battle since 2009.

I think our work on trying to teach the players about the bigger picture has paid dividends. They are now not only more aware

Brian je zaspao

albicilla RSS / 17.01.2009. u 22:48

Brian Stoneman je bio moj prijatelj i vrhunski ptičar. Odrastao u londonskom East Endu, govorio je teško razumljivim kokni akcentom. Školu je napustio sa 16 i zaposlio se u fabrici, koja će mu kasnije doći glave. Kada se sa oko 50 godina penzionisao, lekari su mu zbog azbesta u plućima davali svega dve godine života. Ipak, Brian se preselio u Tursku, gde je kupio nedovršenu

...tamo gde je bilo srce stajaće sunce
i neće biti u ljudskom govoru takvih reči
kojih će se pesma odreći
poeziju će svi pisati
istina će prisustvovati u svim rečima
na mestima gde je pesma najlepša
onaj koji je prvi zapevao povući će se
prepuštajući pesmu drugima
ja prihvatam veliku misao budućih poetika:
jedan nesrećan čovek ne može biti pesnik
ja primam na sebe osudu propevale gomile:

KO NE UME DA SLUŠA PESMU SLUŠAĆE OLUJU ...

Red Star sacrifice style for strength

Mark Pullen RSS / 30.04.2012. u 22:38

Red Star RLC made it two wins from three in the Serbian rugby league this weekend with a resounding victory over a young Radnicki Nova Pazova outfit, though the final score line of 58-28 clearly flattered a seemingly rudderless Red Star team, who let physical superiority get in the way of carefully laid plans and spoiled the chance to play to a pattern that proved successful in patches against the top team in town.

The ying and yang of a rugby team is represented by the forwards and the backs, with the halves or pivots, generally numbers 6, 7 and 9 (stand-off, scrum-half, hooker) acting as the conductors of the team.
