A funny, heartfelt, nostalgia-infused story of grief, sport and the journey of a lifetime.

What do you do when your world changes in an instant? For Jon Harvey, after the sudden death of his brother, it meant turning to the thing that had given him support, joy and a lifetime of memories: sport, in all its myriad sublime and ridiculous forms. A kaleidoscopic twelve months took him from London Olympia to ancient Olympia, from rugby balls to Rubik’s Cubes, Wimbledon tennis to Wimbledon greyhounds, Twickenham to Frimley Green, Roger Federer to Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams, and much, much more. It’s a celebration, of a life shaped by sport, and the ultimate season ticket.
