  1. Vancouver - hire bikes and ride around Stanley Park, catch ferry across to North Vancouver and hike up Grouse Mtn. Head up to Whistler and Squamish for a look if there for a while. Seattle - Museum of Flight, watch live MLB/NFL/MLS/WNBA, catch ferry to one of the Puget Sounds islands for a days hiking, Orca spotting cruise, Museum of Pop Culture, Space Needle. Portland - haven't been, on to-visit list. Craft beer scene pretty big in all 3 cities these days.
  2. Cool to see former basketballer Hugh Greenwood making the Crows team for Saturdays game vs the Lions, good luck to him.
  3. Thankful I got to see him perform 4 times, twice with Soundgarden and twice in solo acoustic mode. Hell of a talent, his friends, family and bandmates will be shattered. Sounds like all wasn't well with him during that last show in Detroit. Only Eddie Vedder left of the big 4 Seattle band lead singers, someone put a moat around him! And Mark Lanegan while their at it.
  4. White House in lockdown after someone was seen scaling the fence, not sure if they were trying to get in or out. Trump seems to be in trouble but I hope he last long enough to go on this overseas trip next week, will be hilarious to see him on the International stage. Can't imagine anyone at NATO even wanting to be seen with him.
  5. NBA

    That was about the least interesting way the order could have fallen. Celtics will take Fultz, Lakers get Ball (and his dad, might have been better for him to have to leave LA), Philly should take the next best guard, Suns should get a crack at the best big in the draft.
  6. NBA

    Yeah why not, Celtics also hoping for a good result in the NBA draft lottery tomorrow our time.
  7. As a currently Brisbane based Richmond fan I try to get down to a game at the MCG each year. Just got back from this years trip, a great weekend spoiled somewhat by the Tigers after the siren loss to the David Mundy/Freo goal. Life got in the way last year and I missed the trip down to Melbourne, the previous years trip had been, yep you guessed, the Freo game won late on by Mr Mundy. Think I'll pick a different match next time we are drawn to play Freo (or Mundy if he moves clubs)!
  8. NBA

    There's your movie Tyno, Ingles with some big 3 pointers late on to win the game over the team that cut him.
  9. Been working through Veep ahead of the new series starting shortly, it's good stuff. Some of the finest swearing on TV. See Monkey Magic is getting a reboot, filming in NZ as we speak. The original was the show of my childhood. Guess they'll PC it up a fair bit for the new version.
  10. NBA

    Great first day of the playoffs for the Aussies teams. Spurs grind out a win over the Grizzlies while the underdog Bucks and Jazz get away wins. Antetokounmpo for the Bucks is so good to watch, first player ever to rank in top 20 in the regular season in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. All at 22 years old.
  11. NBA

    Playoff matchups are set, will be cheering for the Aussies on the Spurs, Jazz and Bucks.
  12. Chinese GP as entertaining as usual. The in-car footage of Verstappen off the start line was one of the best bits of driving I've seen.
  13. You freaking beauty! Go Tiges, young Rioli getting better by the week.
  14. Looking forward to this round of footy. Swans vs Pies and Hawks vs Gold Coast in clashes of 0-2 teams, pressure will be building on the losers of those games. Swans rightly favourites but have bought in plenty of youngsters in the last few games, they need Parker, Hanners etc to lift. Good tests for Tigers and Port vs WCE and Crows in the 2-0 teams. The Showdowns are usually good to watch. GWS came good vs a woeful Suns last week, North away will be more of a test. Freo rebuild has started 2 weeks late after Ross makes 6 changes. Interesting how teams are playing the new ruck rules, Cats, Hawks, and Crows have all experimented with not bothering to nominate a proper ruck at times and instead having an extra midfielder at the contest.
  15. If the Cronk to Bulldogs rumours haven't started yet I'll start them now, get it done Des.
