    I've watched cricket at Queenstown - no better place on a nice day.
    I like the new ground in Dunedin - University Oval - they've done a very nice job with it.

    Carisbrook is good if my belly is packed full of booze.

    Hmm, yes - not the best picture ever of it... my old high school is at the bottom left of that photo. We used to hear the explosions from the quarry (top left) about twice a day.

    New Wanders, Jo'burg, walking out to bat with a sell out crowd, and your on the opposition and when walking down the player's race with the fan's chanting that you things with farmyard animals that is just plain wrong, would get me motivated to make a big score.

    A packed MCG, the bigger the crowd, the better.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
