    Post Match Discussion - Round 10

    Upon seeing how happy I am following our magnificent win, my wife responded with “don’t go getting any ideas you silly old man”. I didn’t realise my happiness was that obvious! 😳

    A Day at the Races

    Lovani lining up at Doomben in race 2. Bit of a nibble for it this morning. Likes to race on the pace too which is an advantage at Doomben today. Fine morning here in Brisbane although a few clouds building in the south. Might cop a shower or two later this morning but shouldn’t have any bearing on track conditions. The Gold Coast may cop a bit of rain though.

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    To me, he has “I will stuff up again” written all over him. And he is a massive bath water consumer.

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Exemplifies why the Lions were only too happy for Schache to head home to his mum. I bet she tucked him in last night with a “there, there sweetie. Don’t cry. Those big boys are just too mean!”

    A Day at the Races

    It’s the second time in a week that The Bostonian has been scratched. Had a shocking gate last week too. When the rail is out at Doomben it makes it even more difficult for those drawn wide. Still, keep an eye out for it. Dane Thunder similarly drew wide but usually not an issue at Sandown. That mail came from somebody very closely connected to the horse too. Yeah, Dafeenah comes via a very reliable source. Was $9 in this mornings (Brisbane) paper. Tongue tie on may be a key.

    A Day at the Races

    I’m not huge on the punt but do get the odd bit of mail which is occasionally profitable. Tomorrow I have these: Doomben R2 - 11 Heavenly Thought Doomben R6 - 12 Schism Doomben R9 - 11 The Bostonian Sandown R2 - 13 Dane Thunder They are all worth a few $ each way and throwing in any multiples.

    Round 9 Non MFC Games ... Shanghai Dumplings

    I fly to Shanghai in a couple of hours. Not going for the game but I will be interested to see the levels of local interest. I am staying not too far from the stadium but have no plans to go to the game. I was in China for last years game and although not in Shanghai, saw nothing on TV or anywhere else advertising the match then. I look forward to checking out the write-ups in the local media both before and after the game.

    Why is Nev invisible to the umps (and Match Review)

    What the hell has Nev being indigenous got to do with him (apparently) not receiving protection from umpires? “Black fella” WTF?

    GAMEDAY - Round 8

    I live in East Brisbane about 400 metres from the Gabba. It was very windy here yesterday although fine and sunny. Looks pretty much the same today although a tad cooler. Wind at this stage not as strong as yesterday. The Gabba surface should be just about perfect for the game. The Victorian based fans will be easy to spot. They will be the ones in short sleeved shirts with sunscreen on their faces. Us acclimatised and transplanted wannabe banana benders will be wearing jackets! Brrrrrr!

    Well, that proves it. ANB has photos of the coach in a compromising position with a farm animal.
