A very special week!

Have to laugh - back in 2009 I watched the mighty Sydney Roosters lose seven or eight consecutive matches at the Sydney footie stadium as the Easts Tricolours went on to claim the comp's dreaded wooden spoon.

This season I've been away overseas and not seen a single game live, and we make the NRL Grand Final.

Luckily ANZ Stadium (the old Olympic Park) out at Homebush is a behemoth venue so I was able to snare a ticket in the true spirit of a glory-hunting part time fan.

Opponents will be Manly Sea Eagles, roll on Sunday...and go Chooks!


Very glad to have gotten out of the stock market at the start of trade today as stocks got smoked, the ASX 200 (XJO) down by 1.7%. 

And we haven't even heard the latest news or developments from the US yet. We'll know plenty more by tomorrow...a first US government shutdown in 17 years now being reported as "probable" by Bloomberg
