Big Weekend

Winner, Winner chicken dinner
Rod Anderson and John Rillie

It all started Friday night with the Melbourne Tigers winning the NBL Championship for the second time over the last three seasons.

I then channel surfed my way over to the Cowboys who were opening up their NRL season against the Gold Coast Titans. Not a pretty site for Cowboys fans as the Titans put on a good show at their new arena, Skilled Park.

Saturday night came around fast and my wife and I headed to the Crocs Annual Ball. Expecting quite a low key night, I was fortunate enough to walk away with the Players Player Award and the MVP. I was quite shocked at the MVP Award, but I will take it while I can. The voting ended very close at the end of the day, with all ten players polling votes.

One of the other awards handed out on the night is the Club Person of the Year Award. This was won by Rod Anderson. He was very happy to win this award as both his mother and father have been previous winners of this award.

Glad to see Sunday roll around so I could relax a little and take in the footy.

In news around the basketball traps. What will the Kings and Tigers lineups be for next season? Kings owner brushed, again? Goorjian in the west! D-Mac to coach. Jason Crowe has TD in NZNBL.

Steve Nash and soccer skillz!

What a couple of good looking puntas!

Did you like the speech?

Speech was one of the best ever. You must have practiced in front of the mirror for hours. Or was it one your mother or father had used.
