Cooper Brown: Horny Guys

I’m back in town. I have become quite a “man of the moment”after my diary on Monday about chicks. I have been asked to go on Loose Women, a TV show where five angry old chicks ritually humiliate younger men guests. I told them that I didn’t want to be on the show and they laid into me and called me “gutless.”

Matthew Norman: The ghouls, the narcissist and top jobs at CNN

With questions raised about the ghoulishness with which the media covered Raoul Moat's final days, a word of praise for two leaders of this frantic festival of broadcast Americana. Kay Burley, the Walter Cronkite du jour who so skillfully downplayed the horrors of 9/11 ("If you're just joining us, the entire eastern seaboard of the United States has been decimated ..."), added to her portfolio of triumphs on Sky News. She asked a criminologist: "Living rough for a narcissist must be tricky?" Well, it must. So hard to find a full length mirror. Speaking of narcissism, hats off to John Inverdale. With so sensitive a breaking story, what you really want at the helm is the sports guy, and John's transition from sipping Pimm's with Boris Becker at Wimbledon to spearheading Radio 5 Live's midday show was seamless. Watching the live feed from Rothbury, he touched on the paradox that, in the midst of all the horror, it looked so sleepily picturesque. "It's almost," he said, "like a scene from Midsomer Murders." He lost it for a bit after that, the sound of blood whooshing to his cheeks clearly audible, but recovered his sangfroid so well that he is said to be CNN's top target this autumn.

Brad Gilbert: Mr Motivator finds his niche calling the shots for champions

As a player, Andy Roddick's coach, Brad Gilbert, only once reached the last eight at Wimbledon. His quarter-final opponent was Boris Becker. "We were supposed to play on Centre Court and I was so pumped, but it rained all day and at seven o'clock we were put on the graveyard court [No 2 Court]. He kicked my ass."
