Hit Me With Your Best Shot
You only have to look at me to see that I’m not very athletic and playing any type of sport isn’t my preferred leisure activity. But those of you who have been following my adventures for some time will know that I am an avid follower of sport. I enjoy the action, the passion of both players and spectators, and the thrill of a big win. So it was with great anticipation that I went to the Brisbane International at the Queensland Tennis Centre and I wasn’t disappointed.
I was excited to see Galina Voskoboeva play. I’m sure we must be related – “Voskoboeva” sounds a lot like “Justin Beaver”.
Can you see any family resemblance?
It takes many different people to make a sporting event like the Brisbane International a success. Some of them are obvious:
and the cameramen,
but you might be surprised to see who else was there.
The Fanatics sang and cheered and supported their favourites all day
and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made a special appearance for the coin toss.
This giant walking tennis ball completed my amazing day when he asked me to pose with him. He had been with a very pretty girl so I hope he wasn’t on the rebound!
Game, set and match.
