This morning Tim was forced to apologise to Jess after Usain Bolt reportedly signed to the Central Coast Mariners with a $3 million contract.
Jess called this a while back only to be shut down by Tim, who thought it was fake news. Of course she took the apology in stride and didn't make a big deal out of the fact that she was right and Tim was wrong... you know Jess.
But after all that, it seems that Usain Bolt plans to reject the offer. The eight-time Olympic sprint champion's manager Ricky Simms confirmed that the offer had been tabled, although Mariners coach Mike Mulvey said he had no knowledge of any contract being offered to Bolt. Can someone say confused please?!
A-League commentator Simon Hill criticised the Mariner's flirtation with Bolt, stating that he was against the "experiment" from day one.
I think it’s great that he’s brought publicity to the league, but if anybody is seriously trying to tell me that Usain Bolt can break into that Mariners team, they are having a laugh. I just don’t think he’s at the standard required."

Sorry Jess, looks like you might have to return that apology! But in the meantime, it doesn't hurt to listen back and bask in the momentary glory of being right...
