Reliving the WNBL, and now for Lightning!

In: WNBL, SA, Misc — Tuesday, 30 Nov, 2021

MARK the date and don't delay! Tuesday is your last chance to buy tickets to the Free Throw Foundation's big pre-Christmas lunch at the Highway Hotel in Adelaide on Friday, December 10, featuring 40 years of WNBL history, a celebration of Adelaide Lightning's opening home game and a chance to buy my new basketball-based book!

The perfect stocking stuffer

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, SA, Misc — Friday, 26 Nov, 2021

THANK you very much from the bottom of my heart to the people already purchasing copies of my basketball-based memoir "A Type of Life" which, I am reliably informed, has been flying off the shelves at Dymocks.

THE history of the Adelaide Lightning with surprise guests, copies of my new book "A Type of Life" for sale, and news out of Basketball SA ... the Free Throw Foundation's pre-Christmas lunch on December 10 at the Highway Hotel is one not to be missed.

And yes, unfortunately we've stayed offline

APOLOGIES to regular readers and visitors here but as you will have noticed, your author has stayed out of commission for several weeks despite promising the website's imminent return. Sadly it's been the result of a series of back spasms that laid me out for several weeks and kept my chiropractor extremely busy.

Apologies for the temporary delay...

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Wednesday, 27 Oct, 2021

DEAR regulars, apologies for the recent lack of B.O.T.I. coverage but have had a lot on the old plate. One daughter's wedding and marriage, another one's birthday, the imminent release of my memoir. In the meantime, great basketball stuff has been piling up but back on deck now and will start clearing those same decks shortly!

My memoir 'A Type of Life' is six weeks away

In: SA, Misc — Sunday, 19 Sep, 2021

LAST year I dropped a couple of chapters of my forthcoming memoir "A Type of Life" into this website for your early perusal and I am beyond thrilled to report the full book will be released on November 1. It's as much the story of a migrant family, early basketball, life at a lively afternoon newspaper and some of the big crime stories of the day in SA.

B&B: Sporny, talking Opals Olympic scenarios

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals, SA — Monday, 2 Aug, 2021

OPALS in an Olympic pickle? You bet. So Brad Rosen and I spoke to the expert, Channel 7 commentator and triple-Olympian Rachael Sporn to explain all the scenarios ahead of tonight's mightily important final intragroup game against Games minnow Puerto Rico, and what the USA-France result also might mean.
