An HG moment

HG and Roy’s immortal saying “when too much sport is just barely enough” has never been truer than tonight. The Blues over Queensland in thugby league by 27 – 4, followed by Wimbledon tennis action. And in Darwin, the V8 Supercars are in town for the annual round at the Hidden Valley circuit this coming weekend.

To be honest, I’m not all that interested in the tennis, what with Hewitt eliminated and Pat Rafter retired. And I don’t have any current intention of going to the car racing either. But it’s all a good excuse to postpone any more exam marking until the morning. Especially when all it tells me is that those students who appeared not to be listening in lectures weren’t just pretending. The lights really were on but no-one was home.
