Gheorghe Hagi’s greatest Gala goals
This week's round-up also features some cheer for Man Utd fans, A Question of Sport in better times and the Cruyff diamond
1) US racing driver Mike Stefanik with possibly the sulkiest TV interview in history [warning, includes some bad words]. And staying in motor sport: Barry Sheene takes Jimmy Greaves for a ride around Donington in 1983, plus when they used to race in Daytona … on the beach. Here's the 1952 edition.
2) "Got some hot wings at Stuart Appleby's, oh I want to win so Aaron Baddeley." Yep, the Golf Boys are back.
3) Something to cheer up Manchester United fans: Uefa's pitchside footage of the last three minutes of the 1999 Champions League final, plus dressing-room footage from afterwards. Oh, and Dave Hodgson scoring for Middlesbrough against Manchester City in 1981, while wearing a United shirt.
4) A Question of Sport recently reached its 1,000th episode. Let's, however, try not to remember it for the mugging shambles it has become: here's Bernard Manning and Frank Carson joining the teams in 1988; the Emlyn Hughes-Princess Anne episode; a 1992 edition featuring John Aldridge, Robin Smith and Duke McKenzie; and the ZX Spectrum game. Meanwhile, here's ITV's near-namesake Sport in Question, featuring Brian Clough, from 1995.
5) Gheorghe Hagi's top 10 Galatasaray goals.
6) Some Guardian videos you may have missed this week: referee in Lebanon forced into Benny Hill-style escape from angry footballers; a volleyed goal of the season contender from Turkey's Korhan Ozturk; and Khalil Edney with a ridiculous championship-winning basketball buzzer-beater.
Our favourites from last week's blog
2) That Allan Donald could bowl a bit. Classic Test action here as he bamboozles the Waugh brothers with a blistering 'Bodyline-esque' spell.
3) You've heard of the Cruyff turn, now here's the Cruyff diamond. It's his y'know …
4) No one likes a show-off. Unless they are doing this on a pool table.
5) Another knowledgeable phone-in punter, this time from above the border. Cue more confusion.
