I love living in Melbourne, but some weeks are even better than others.
Last week I enjoyed my annual Stadium Stomp volunteer shift at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. I love being at the G early in the morning, when it is just coming to life. Sure, its cold but it is spectacularly beautiful. I admire the Stompers who climb (and descend) the 7000 plus steps, bay by bay, but I still haven’t tried it myself. Maybe next year.
On Tuesday I enjoyed a long chat with my friend and former SYN Media colleague, Jonathan Brown, for his 94.9 program Stripped Down. We (okay, it was mostly me) had a long chat about sports. Thanks JB!
And on Wednesday I joined the inimitable Andy Bell at The Wheeler Centre to listen to Martin Flanagan and Bob Murphy chat about their books The Short Long Book and Murphy’s Lore: Tales from the West. I’ve just finished Bob’s (and loved it) and look forward to devouring Flanagan’s soon.
