the editor’s letter

This month marks an interesting personal milestone. I realised I have now been alive without my father around for longer than I was with him. Aside from the odd pang of surprise nostalgia, I made my peace with his passing years ago. He remains a memory, made fonder by my son being born on his birthday. As I pondered this thought on deadline, politely chased by my team to file this letter, something struck me for the first time: I don’t know how this has shaped who I am – as a man, as a father, as an editor of this distinguished men’s lifestyle magazine. I know who I’ve become, how I’ve dealt with this loss, but I’ve never considered who I might have been, had I had a paternal influence…

dan rookwood on sport’s new frontier

The tipping point was July 10, 1999, The Rose Bowl, Los Angeles. When Brandi Chastain famously ripped off her shirt to bare her sports bra after scoring the penalty that won the World Cup for the host nation in front of 90,185 fans and a global TV audience of millions, it changed the game in the US. Soccer took off as a women’s sport. That moment – that unforgettably iconic image – inspired a generation. Twenty years on, there is a growing sense that the World Cup in France this June could truly light the torch for the game on a global scale. And the Matildas, currently ranked sixth (36 places higher than the Socceroos’ world ranking) and led by the inspirational Sam Kerr, have a genuine shot of winning it. Let’s…

classic catch

I came across the book in high school, but I didn’t read it then. I was too busy skipping class,” says Christopher Abbott with a laugh. This comes as a surprise. Abbott’s played a good spread of characters in his time, but his portrayal of Charlie – the intelligent, loyal and handsome on-off boyfriend of Marnie Michaels in Lena Dunham’s Girls – was the kind of performance that made you believe Abbott and Charlie were the same person. Anyway, turns out Abbott was much more of a badass. The book Abbott is talking about here is Joseph Heller’s 1961 satire Catch-22 . Not that he knew it (or cared) at the time, but Abbott didn’t need to bother himself with the novel’s complex plot or narrative devices at school. Landing the…
