Closing comment – 25 May 2012 – Crownies, crowds and a cowl neck


This week’s Closing Comment has a distinctly sporting flavour after attending the State of [the] origin on Wednesday night and hopefully (rain pending) heading to the Storm v Broncos tonight at AAMI Park.

The rain looks like it could be here to stay … so we may have to skip the stadium and watch from somewhere dry and warm with a few Crownies. Either way, it’s nice to have friends and family in town!!

Speaking of visitors, the folks from Queensland and NSW were in fine form on Wednesday night at Etihad Stadium, as was the cross promotion for Channel Nine with The Voice’s Delta Goodrem “on top of the world” and little Annie singing her heart out.

While it was a great atmosphere, I did wonder why so many grown men and women had donned Annie wigs? Thankfully, the real Annie didn’t need to borrow one – that could have been a catastrophe!

Now back to The Voice, a show that’s captivating the nation for good and bad reasons. Earlier in the week I caught up with Joel Carnegie, a finalist in The Voice’s Kick Start competition sponsored by Australian Super, who is hoping to win & head to the London Business School. Take a second and vote for Joel PLUS you could win a chance to go to the Voice Final show!!!

Cooking is another c-word of the week, with our associate Helen confirming she’s not only a star in the boardroom but also in the kitchen. On a whim she whipped up a batch of scones with all ingredients purchased from our local 7 eleven. For the record: they were delicious!

The final c-word for the week: cowl neck. Because it was rainy & it’s casual Friday I thought I’d wear my cowl neck jumper. Coincidently it’s from Calibre.

Oh the c-words are flowing, the rain is pouring and our to do list is growing; so time to end this post and head back to the emails.

Have a great weekend everyone.


Jack & the c word crew
