My Sporting Role Model – Brad Thorn

My Sporting Role Model – Brad Thorn

I’m not a big sports fan at all. And up until Sunday the name Brad Thorn was not even on my radar. In fact I don’t even really know why I started to read the story in The  Courier Mail’s Q-Weekend but  I’m very glad I did!  For me to find myself crying into my… Continue Reading
