Now we’re going to watch a film –a short film so don’t think you’re going to get a chance to sleep off last night’s Boone’s or Mad Dog binge.

It’s a gorgeous piece of film and it’s got nothing to with anything other than making all of you (and myself) a little more well-rounded and cultured to the world’s game.
