Won’t mention who wins the flag then.

Ooops, sorry. Bit like going to see Titanic the movie…but with a much happier ending…for us, at least.


#45

I’m aiming to finish it before our next premiership. Just so many words !

It’s no Hungry Caterpillar that’s for sure.

Whaddya talkin’ about you girly swot !

No-one was happier than me when that film ended.

Halfway through it I was praying that the filmakers had used some artistic licence , and that very soon we’d see a few german U-Boats zeroing in…armed to the teeth with torpedos !

Haha ! :smiley:

Any cherries on the Dynadrive yet ? Apart from the ones all down the edges of course.


#47

Sort of similar - once we got a point in front of the Crows, I was praying for the siren. Glad my prayers weren’t answered :slight_smile:


#48

Moderated on only your 16th post ?

I like you already Rick.

And I too was calling for the siren when we hit the front , but then I do that every week.


#49

Not sure what that means?

You should know by now that I like to fix broken quotes :wink:

I purchased the book. Riveting reading. Please do not spoil for others. The enjoyment of the book is reading it for the first time. Konrad Marshall is a very good author whom I have always admired as a news features writer. I hope the book wins state and federal literary awards. It could become the defining work of Marshall’s career.


#52

Have just finished it. I’ve not read many sporting books - not really my thing, I thought. Marshall’s book shows how a ‘footy book’ can be interesting, insightful, even inspirational, in equal measure. I am going to deal with my withdrawals by reading Janet McCalman’s Struggletown now. It seems like the thing to do. Thanks, Konrad - awesome job!

Surprise surprise, Oracle gives it the thumbs up. Reckon we should sign Konrad up to do a book every year of Hardwicks contract. That would be 30 books, call them Konradtanica or Sashapedia. Anyway I’m at page 70, feel bad about what I was saying about Cotch, but if he had taken notice of me then, he wouldn’t have had the problems in the first place. Now he is a super man. I helped toughen him up, but I still feel bad.


#54

That’s more than a page a day…the pressure is on.

Unlike the GF, which is just as enjoyable no matter how many times I’ve watched it before.


#55

Finished the book down at PI over the weekend. It had me gripped right until the end to hear how we went in the finals!!


#56

40 feet to go!

I have an exclusive excerpt from @17Sash’s upcoming book: 17Dream.

It was day one of pre-season. The players gathered in the club auditorium and casually chatted about their summer frivolity. Then the senior coach, Damien Hardwick, an imposing figure, entered the room through a side door and strode purposefully to the podium.

it was at that moment I knew we would win the premiership.


#58

I heard it advertised as being available in ‘all good book stores’

Obviously the ones around here are all bad ?

I had to google ‘bookstores’ to start with , and being that I’ve never set foot in one , it was always gonna be an adventure.

However , now that I have to somehow determine the good bookstores from the bad , trying to find this book is turning into the bloody Da Vinci code for me.

An amazing year. My scholarship college St Kevin’s wins inaugural A Grade Amateur premiership too. Coached by Shannon Grant, we dispatched arch-rivals Xavier College. Luke Beveridge, as you know, coached St Bede’s Mentone to three consecutive premierships, C to B to A Grade Premiers, creating history. Beveridge’s ascent last year paved the way for our immortal premiership coach, Damien Hardwick.
