what’s up august

August is here which means only one thing. Football season is back on television! Wahayy.

To top it off, raya is exactly one week away. Double wahaaaaay! Actually I’m pretty antsy about raya being so close since both baju rayas that I ordered show no signs of being ready in time. Back up plan, Masjid India we go.

Anywho, with the 13/14 season around the corner, Football Overload is set to hit the screens again on 22nd August. And jeng jeng jeng…the secret’s out, we have a new recruit.

Film maker Reuben Kang from Jinnyboytv has already created waves behind the lens, but how will he fare in front of the camera? TSUNAMI alert!

So, what happened to that tall, hairy, Mr Bean look alike guy also known as Roshan? He’s still very much with us. You may not catch him on FO anymore, but keep your eyes peeled on all Supersport channels. He’s there somewhere. If you don’t find him, drop us a line and we’ll be sure to issue one of those missing person milk cartons out.

Aside from FO, there’ll be a slew of new shows coming up on Supersport which are going to be just plain aweeesome! Part of this awesomeness is a show called Sports Swap. The name says it all. 2 athletes from 2 different sports compete against each other in their respective sports. They’ll also compete in a 3rd neutral sport none of them plays. Winner takes all.

How do I play a role in this show? Comic relief apparently since I can’t hit a golf ball to save my life but somehow manage to almost, I repeat, almostĀ but didn’t, hit a camera man with my killer swing.

You’d have to watch it to believe it.

Natalie from Hitz is co-hosting and we’re both like handicaps to each athlete’s game. We keep score for each of 13 episodes, and the loser faces a punishment in the end.

Quite clear who’s going to lose this one huh? Tall and graceful Nat, with her svelte and athletic build against uncoordinated, non athletic, humpty dumpty me?

I’m going to go practice my walk of shame now. Hmph!
