News flash: last person finally gets out of Leichhardt Oval

News flash: last person finally gets out of Leichhardt Oval

There’s a rumour going round that the last fan has finally left Leichhardt Oval after Sunday’s match against the Sharks. The fact that it can take hours to leave after a game at the inner city venue seems to have escaped those who indulged in an orgy of praise before, during and after the 25-8 defeat of the Wests Tigers. I stopped going to Leichhardt Oval years ago because life’s too short to waste so many hours trying to get out of the parking areas around the ground. What’s more, anything more than 10,000 people in attendance and you’d miss… Read more »

When we shuffle off this mortal coil, it would be good to attend our own funeral

It’s rather ironic that we can’t go to the one function that we’d kill for: our own funeral. But what’s really interesting are the answers you receive when bringing up the subject – yes, Your Honour, I did that recently – guilty as charged. And the first response was from one of the wits sitting nearby: how do you know you can’t attend your own funeral? Which I must admit knocked me over at first, but when you think about it, it’s possible we could be capable of attending our own funeral but we just can’t confirm it; not while… Read more »

Beware of the traps in the fascinating world of friendships

It’s fascinating how we make friends in so many different ways.

For those two you can see that even though they didn’t know each other from a bar of soap until they were 18 their individual trajectories were heading towards each other and it was inevitable that they would end up great friends themselves as well as their families once they started working, got married and had… Read more »

Here’s cheers to our pubs

This week we do a bit of bar hopping, sort of, in a responsible service of alcohol kind of a way. But seriously, when we say our top five pubs, we’re looking at the ambience, the food, the service, the whole shebang. The days of The Kontos Report just goingRead more »

One way is a slow way: Queen Street, Campbelltown

Traffic jams at every turn

In the second installment of our Top Five we look at the south west region’s busiest roads. Narellan Road, between Campbelltown and Narellan, wins hands down. It is a shocker, not just at peak times. It is undergoing widening, and not before time. But even when that’s completed it’s doubtfulRead more »
