Bruce p suggested putting a post where community members get to tell us a bit about themselves. He suggested “including area you live, team followed, occupation, age and a few other tit bits.”
Where I live: South Melbourne. Been in Melbourne for almost 20 years. I was born in Sydney (spent my formative years in Artarmon) and grew up in Adelaide (mostly around Unley).
Team followed: Carlton. Living for the day I get to see them play a GF. Watched the ’95 flag in Brisbane where I was working at the time. In the SANFL I’m a Double Blues man.
Favourite footy memory: Carlton’s 2013 Elimination Final win over Richmond. We finished 9th, made it into the 8 after Essendon got rubbed out for the drug scandal, then stormed home in the final quarter to win by 20. Judd wound back the clock in the 3rd quarter with what has been described as the “quarter from heaven”, Nick Duigan kicked 4 goals after getting a call up 20 minutes before the bounce and Jarrad Waite chimed in with 4 of his own. I was in the stands that day and it’s something I’ll never forget. [Note: this was the last time Carlton beat Richmond].
Occupation: When not running a wildly successful website, I host trivia nights at my local (these days I’m doing them online and they’re just as fun). Any time free after that is spent running my own management consultancy.
Age: 49 in just over a month.
Hobbies: I love playing golf and play off 12. It kills me that Albert Park golf course closed overnight. I was lucky enough to get a round in yesterday morning. Shot 88. I’m also getting reasonably good at table tennis. I live in a development of 5 townhouses with a communal garage. Me and a guy who lives in one of the other townhouses have been going into the garage where another owner has set up a table to play pretty much every day. We’ve been known to have a beer or two while we play as well. There’s worse ways to be in lockdown.
