About Me

Ben Karpinski is a South African sports blogger/MC/tweeter with a heart so broken by the Proteas, that movies like the Notebook are slapstick comedies to him. He wakes up very early each morning to add a sporting/manly element to the Gareth Cliff Show on CliffCentral.com, and post that tries to stay in shape to please his girlfriend, and make enough money to keep their cat in prime cuts at dinner.
