Quite where we'll fit in time to sleep, eat or get into the garden this weekend is anyone's guess. It's one of the weekends where we will give thanks and praise for that wonderful invention known as MySky. We also have to fit in Wanganui's Heartland match against North Otago this morning, and a catch-up lunch and ale pre-match with Wanganui old boy (now living upo near the big smoke) Jaba. And as fate would have it, we're batching this weekend!
The Ryder Cup is a special highlight. This weekend the best players from Europe and the USA go head to head at Medinah Country Club in Chicago in their biennial contest. And after the copious quantities of cash for which they play week in and week out, this week they play simply for the thrill of the contest, and the honour of representing their team. The teams are as strong as they have possibly ever been, and the final foursomes match on Friday morning (US time) should be an absolute cracker; Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods will play Ian Poulter and Justin Rose.
We'll still find time to blog; after all, what use is a laptop if you don't have it on your lap whilst watching the telly? And whoever said that men can't multi-task? But if our eyes are hanging out on stalks by Monday morning, you'll understand why. And we're just grateful that it's not Bathurst until next Sunday!
Happy sporting viewing...
