Toby’s Choice – Week 10

Posted by on Nov 17, 2008 in Featured Channels | 1 comment

1. Roger Federer – worldtv.com/roger_federer

The greatness of Roger Federer is hard to appreciate fully as he is still playing and has recently unimaginably become fallible with the might of Rafa Nadal causing tennis ranking upheaval.  However future historians will affectionately look back at Federer as one of, if not the all time Greats.  A true Gentleman and ambassador for the game who is still only 27 and is just one win away from equaling Pete Sampras’s previously thought unbeatable record of 14 Grand Slam titles in the Modern era.

2. Gooner News TV – worldtv.com/gooner_news_tv

In case you were unfamiliar with the term a Gooner refers to a fan of Arsenal Football Club hence the channel name.  Arsenal have consistently been a top flight Premier League football club for more than a decade under the meticulous care of Arsene Wenger whose brand of football is even popular among opposing team fans (myself included)

3. Ayrton Senna – worldtv.com/ayrtonsenna

I remember exactly where and what i was doing when i heard that Ayrton Senna had crashed and died.  Senna seemed like an elusive, sultry looking man and I used to love watching the aggressive style of his rubbing burning battles with Prost and Mansell, perhaps we were denied the only driver who could have challenged Schumacher in his early years., The yellow helmet is still revered and copied by the current king of the track Lewis Hamilton a self confessed fan of the late great Aytron Senna.

4. Diego Maradona – worldtv.com/diegomaradona

As an Englishman its hard not to have some distaste for Maradona after his Hand of God goal and possibly the greatest goal scored in the competition, all in one match against England in the 1986 World Cup.  However like Federer he remains arguably the best ever player to have graced his game and is quite literally worshiped in his home country Argentina.  Watching this channel you cannot help but be amazed at his ability, check his tricks out as he casually warms up before a game, unbelievable natural talent.

5. Boxing TV – worldtv.com/boxingtv

I remember boxing once being described as “a barbaric sport, but there is nothing more exhilarating to watch..” This channel is is full classic boxing encounters including a documentary series about the best of British fighters locked in the ancient art pugilism

Toby’s Choice – Week 9

Posted by on Nov 2, 2008 in Featured Channels | Comments Off

Toby’s Choice this week enters the political sphere with a humorous look at some of the world’s most powerful politicians. With the seemingly endless campaigning almost over and the 2008 American Presidential Elections literally hours away…

Obama TV – worldtv.com/obamaTV

As a non-American, outside observer, Obama gets my vote (for what it’s worth).  I sincerely hope that if he does manage to reach the goal of his campaign and become president of the US of A, that he begins the process of “change” immediately as there is a fair amount of damage to undo. For a more factual look at Barack, check out History of Obama – worldtv.com/HistoryofObama

John McCain TV - worldtv.com/johnmccainTV

It seems to be that McCain is the man for those who lean towards preserving the status quo in the U.S.  A Vietnam veteran who exudes patriot America and is the popular choice for the ex Bush crowd. For a more serious take on Mr McCain, see History of McCain- worldtv.com/HistoryofMcCain


Sarah Palin TV
worldtv.com/SarahPalinTV

Will the real Sarah “The Hockey Mom” Palin please stand up!  Her packaged politics and robotic white toothed deliveries may prove to be a hindrance rather than help to the McCain campaign. Only time will tell. For a more factual look at Sarah, see History of Sarah Palin- worldtv.com/HistoryofSarahPalin

George Bush TVworldtv.com/georgebushtv


Regardless of your political persuasion I’m sure most of you will agree that GWB hasn’t been the ideal president of the most powerful country in the world, but boy does he provide a seemingly endless supply of hilarious video recorded ineptitude.  One of our oldest and most popular channels always delivers the belly laughs.

Sarkozy Superstar - worldtv.com/sarkozy_superstar

The French Head of State not surprisingly has a big smile with the power at his fingertips and a gorgeous ex model wife to boot.

Non mi piace Berlusconi – worldtv.com/non_mi_piace_berlusconi

The practically self appointed, football club owning “pure as the driven snow” president from Italy receives another transparent and impartial piece of political advice.
