Where Art Thou Week 14-Telstra Dome, Matthew Kreuzer

June 1 132

Almost as quick as last week, shniken, guessed the place, the time, and the person correctly. This picture was taken from the seats in between the interchange benches at last week’s match between Geelong and Carlton. The player on the bicycle is Matthew Kreuzer, last year’s #1 draft pick. It must be distracting hearing Kruz! from the crowd everytime he touches the ball. This in conjunction with picking up Chris Judd from West Coast has put the Blues from the bottom of the ladder last year, to almost breaking into the 8. Towards the end of the game, Carlton’s Paul Bower got into a crunching tackle and copped a season ending shoulder injury. To see a guy that huge on the verge of tears showed just how painful footy can be.

Iron my shirt

extremeironing1.jpgAustralia rules when it comes to swimming, cricket and occasionally rugby. But a couple of weeks ago, a new sport was dominated in St. Leonard’s near Geelong. 72 SCUBA divers set into the ocean with a goal of beating the record for the largest amount of people ironing underwater at the same time.

According to ExtremeIroning.com, the sport that is ‘extreme ironing’ is an outdoor activity that combines the danger and excitement of an ‘extreme’ sport with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt. It involves taking an iron and board (if possible) to remote locations and ironing a few items of laundry. This can involve ironing on a mountainside, preferably on a difficult climb, or taking an iron skiing, snowboarding or canoeing.

I hate ironing in normal situations, so I can’t even imagine ironing underwater.
