The story on Uber has been written about ad nauseam, which is why I’ve been reluctant to weigh in. But enough people have asked my perspective so I decided to weigh in with my non-conformist view.

Being English I cannot understand why foreigners might struggle to grasp the appeal of sitting on a wooden bench and watching 22 men occasionally move on-and-off a large field for five days, but believe me when I tell you that a cogent explanation of the rules of cricket is the matter of a few moments compared to an understanding of Formula One."

"Ten years ago, I had just started college. I had never been paid for writing about games and honestly didn't know if I ever would be. I suffered from a yet-undiagnosed anxiety disorder. I was entering adulthood, but I was, for all intents and purposes, still a dumb kid, largely unaware of who I was, where I was going and how to get there.
