STUMPS & BALLS

Hello, Hello. Just been hanging out in God’s Country, Bells Beach: Still home for we, wicked. Flew over from the West where I got a 9th in the surf and the blow- ins won cricket.

The last five years the surfers (blow-ins), captained by Snake, have been playing a cricket match with local side the Dunsbourgh Squeezers. We were tied two-wins-a-piece and this was the decider. We were clearly outclassed in skill but our heart got us over the line, with Tom Whitz hitting 20 runs off the last over to win by 2 runs. All I did was try not to get out. I took four catches in the outfield though, Yeeha.

When I got back to Victoria for Bells, I took a diversion to Melbourne’s MCG stadium to watch the mighty Richmond Tigers take on the Sydney Swans in Australian Football. Sick game, with the Swans running away with it in the last quarter. Otto is a mad Sydney fan and I had to listen to him sing the team song the whole way home.
