Everyone else is talking about it, so I thought I should mention it too. What about that leave from Glenn Maxwell in lastnight’s Big Bash game?! The “Big Show” was a “No Show”! The Melbourne Stars star stepped back and charged at the Brisbane Heat bowler Cameron Duffield, looking like he was going to go BIG and he didn’t even swing the bat! Was it a brain freeze?

The game was much closer than the 30-6 score line suggests. [Read more...]

Finally got around to opening a few social media accounts for the Online Betting Blog! It has only taken me about a year to do it but it’s better late than never! I seriously use that term way too much, but hey, I’m working on that too. Over the years I have found that the only 2 social media sites worth using are Facebook and Twitter, so I’ll focus on the two biggies for now. [Read more...]
