    OK have posted my first poll - Probably wont make a lot of sense to the honoary (wish l could spell) Aussies - But the NZ's will kow some - and it may make others want to know

    I do enjoy my sports - I get very tired watching all the sport that happens in our country. - I would be a real Norm(a) l guess

    Hey, I picked the GF -- what else could I say??

    I live in Brisbane

    It was 2 in a row (even though at heart I'm an Essendon girl!)

    I sat in the Sawtell Bowls Club with my BIL who is a FANATICAL Collingwood supporter -- AND THE LIONS FLOGGED THEM!!!!

    I vote the Melbourne Cup..........I know I must'nt be a 'proper' Victorian as I have no interest at all in games that involve people kicking a ball around!

    heheh ok - so i voted twice!!!
    The Aussie Rules Grand Final and then the Melbourne Cup - who wouldn't enjoy having a public holiday *in Vic anyway* to dress up, look gorgous and sip champagne all day!!! (Please being an EXCELLENT excuse to shop!!!)
    heheh, what was that i heard about saving money???

    Love Rachel

    Had to be Damien Oliver's inspirational and poignant win in the Melbourne Cup.

    I don't follow that form of sport, but it brought a tear to my eye.

    Media beat-up -- don't particularly have a lot of time for the man, but I think someone (ie the guy with the camera) was just out to try & cash in.

    What about the guy asking for compensation b/c Carey's mates stole his camera? It was disposeable, for crying out loud! Total value of about $12.50!!

    I feel sorry for his wife -- why is she still sticking around?? I would have been out the door the first time it happened....

    All the girls at work, me included, went in early so we could wear our England shirts, warpaint and St George's Cross bandannas while we ate bacon butties in front of the World Cup matches on the waiting room telly.

    My BF and I went with some Kiwi mates to see the All Blacks give Wales a thorough spanking - the only All Blacks supporters in a sea of Welsh fans. All the Kiwis were on the opposite side of the stadium to us. It was worth it

    Frannybee - sounds to me as though you dont follow the aussie rules - but thats OK - Glad you got a chance to see such a good match - Its great seeing a sporting festival like that when your O/S we went to a FA cup final when we over there and to Lords and to the Oval - as well as Wiimbeldon (couldnt find any wombbles though) thats how long ago that was - It will be 25 years ago since we left the old DART in Oct - tear coming to my eye as l write this.
