Behind the scenes: 2017 AFL Grand Final

As a die-hard Crows supporter I’ve always maintained the belief that the last thing I would want in footy would be to LOSE a Grand Final. Well… turns out that happened. Almost a year ago to the day. It still stings, particularly after a disappointing 2018 season. But now with a new finals story being written it’s a little bit easier to leave the heartache of the 2017 AFL Grand Final behind. I faced the day in an unique predicament as the lead social media content curator for the AFL at the ground. I was so excited going into the…

2018 Tour Down Under

Now I’m counting down to tonight’s AFL Women’s season opener and AFLX in the not-so distant future! Anyway back to bikes… Jason and I are lucky to share a common interest in cycling and have gone to every Tour Down Under for as long as I can remember.

The Slovakian star was a clear crowd favourite along with Aussies Richie Porte (the eventual winner) and Caleb Ewan. Other international names included Esteban Chaves, Robert Gesink, and Sergio Henao. Having been to our fair share of TDU’s Jason and I tend to map out our week as we go along, making sure we make the most of our time at home. This year’s visit took…

I’ve listed all the important details from our trip as well as included all my best photos from our Adelaide getaway below. Rundle St is one of my favourite streets in Adelaide with a wide…

The best game of Big Bash ever

A look back over arguably the best game in Big Bash history, a 2015/2016 New Year’s thriller at Adelaide Oval. – Guys, newsflash, there was a pretty epic game of Big Bash cricket on at Adelaide Oval last night. Say what? Yes, cricket and epic can go in the same sentence together.  There’s no better word to describe the Adelaide Strikers thrilling win over the Sydney Sixers as Travis Head knocked six after six to snatch victory for the home side. The batsman smashed a stunning 56 runs from his last 15 balls and produced one of the most memorable…
