I'm talking NZ cricket grounds.
500 is probably capacity in Blenheim!

Yeah, that would've been shit.

Still, it sounds fucking awesome compared to watching ten minutes of American football on telly or something.

I've seen something similar - one Warriors player was running down the sideline, the next thing we see is a shoe fly about 10 feet into the air....................and he still ran another 30 metres to score!

I hate mexican waves, especially when started by the rugby n00bs at Warriors games.

Hey, fuck you! There's a game on, for fucks sake!

It's alright at cricket.

Aah right... I'd heard of the race, just didn't know what had happened.

Poor bloody horse...

Someone once asked Dr Hugh Wirth why horses get killed when they break a leg; and he, animal rights advocate that he is, replied that it really is more humane to kill them, because vetinary medicine simply isn't good enough to set the horse's leg again, because the tendons are so strong.

Hey, Millburnians, Ali in particular, can I bug you again with a "can you ID this?" photo?

What's the big circular thing in the background of this photo? It looks like a massive ferris wheel. Is it? I have a number of distance photos of it but frankly have no idea what it's meant to be! This particular photo is taken from the LaTrobe Street bridge over the railway near the Telstra Dome.

I loved it when the U2 audiences got impatient and started Mexican waves. It went around eight or nine times in one Aussie city, I think at a Sydney gig.

At least I have room to swing the thing around, now.

Did find a few tops I thought I'd lost (although where else they could have gone is beyond me), and a Metlink keyring which I have for some reason, and a pile of stuff I posted back here from overseas, which I'm only now putting into my "Holiday" archive box. Including one stick of Brighton Rock which I never ate...
And also some shortbread someone gave me for Christmas. It doesn't taste TOO stale...

There's still a way to go, though!
