The old year is in its last day and the New Year is ready and waiting. Men and women who never get kisses will be kissed tonight. Love is in the air and the New Year is the time for renewing our vows to make the most of our lives.

And if you've had an annus horribilis well then one second after midnight will be a welcome release. But the triumph of mankind is our ability to overcome adversity, no matter what.

In sport this was the year of the underdog. As for life in general well then the underdog is still the underdog.
