On the spot
GLENN PETERS, Diamante Smuggler

The arsehole who stabbed me... His name is...

Mediocrity.

Closing your eyes as Anthony Rocca lines up for a set shot at goal from only 30 metres.

Wet road on a hot day as the storm is about to come.

Gotta love a man who treasures such treasures as Big Star and old uncle Jack.

Unless he's a Collingwood supporter, of course.

Come to think of it Stan, my hand knitted (knitted by my ex-girlfriend's mother over a summer), Collingwood scarf is almost as treasured.
