I know what you mean, I woke up this morning to read "Dr Blair Trewin, senior climatologist at the Bureau of Meteorology and general fount of wisdom for all things historical and weather"

Happy solstice

I haven't yet woken up to the sound of my own voice, but I have heard my voice come on the radio when driving, which is somewhat disconcerting.

Aren't there two annoying things? Essendon and Darebin.

Got to hand it to Essendon for finding unique ways to get to play with a second string list.

I'm surprised Essendon footballers can count to two.

You've got your teams mixed up here. The old joke in Melbourne was that the only difference between Collingwood supporters and Essendon supporters was that Essendon supporters can read and write.

Multi skilled football supporters? Unbelievable.

And Essendon is prone to performance enhancing drugs, rather than across the Nullabor where the history is more one of recreational substances.

Given Essendon's actual results in 2012, I'd suggest inserting an "allegedly" in front of "performance enhancing".

I think Essendon should have played, but been made to stay 2m away from Melbourne players, and have to stop and wipe the ball if they got hold of it. Melbourne would have been allowed to tackle, which would then have resulted in a free kick to Melbourne because the Essendon player was too close.

@TIL - IIRC ketamine was a drug of choice for the Weagles - effects include "As with "ketamine reduces — or even eliminates — pain." pretty useful in a grand final (2006 cough cough).

I thought they'd be wanting to reduce pain from the 2005 edition.
