  1. I watched 2nd half of ninja last night on 9now, while I typed up some articles on the computer. Instead of having 5 steps, they changed it to shrinking steps for the introduction to the course.
    At the end, the promo came up for Monday’s Ninja Warrior with Kyrgios commentating. I think i need to mute tv and commentate myself.

  2. Watching Ninja Warrior, I don’t know how some make it look so easy. Even Olivia Vivien came a cropper showing its no mean feat.

    Props to the producers for freshening up the course.
