Lillee’s Lair

How sad that this once great fast bowler is reduced to living in a small, old flat in Beaufort Street Inglewood. I didn’t realise he was such a shortarse.

    So out of proportion it’s not even funny! Actually… it is. I burst out laughing. Whenever my Dad and I see Dennis Lillee sporting his Centrum in chemist adverts, Dad always reminds me they have the exact same birthday.

    I don’t think he lives there though, he is just installing a carpet

  4. Yes G1. He seems to have come to terms with being an Inglewood shortarse. If only we all could be as happy with our lot in life.

    thats what I enjoy about TWOP : multi billion dollar developments one day, card board cut-outs the next ( or almost). Egalitarian to the max.

  6. He’s cardboard? Remind me not to ask you about the tooth fairy Flynnie. What I love about doing TWOP is that people have interesting and funny things to say about whatever I put up.

    I think Caide might have the great DKL mixed up with Robert DeCastella who did the Centrum ads… DK did the Glucosamine ads.
    Easy to get confused though.
    Just a whisker in it!

  12. Lesley, when the “prize” pack contains
    “Genuine collectible Bradman Teddy Bear, complete with MML logo (absolutely rare)”, how could anyone resist? Are you nominating it for worst prize here?

    the teddy bear is “absolutely rare”, TLA. you give away cheap plonk, and Ms Dewar offers uniqueness and rarity that is absolute: you should like the cut of her jib.

    I have actually collected these four pieces over a few years – I am a bit of a cricket tragic – and Dennis signed the programme for me at Lilac Hill this year. Along with a few others.

    I like your crazy site and I thought some of your regulars might be interested in a competition promoted under the title of No Tall Poppies – given your style. :-)

    So, give it a go. Last month, we couldn’t even give away an autograph of Greg Norman or Johnny Depp!

    So, just go to http://notallpoppies.wordpress.com and tell your friends, too!

    Actually, they are snow flakes, because one of my sons is in Toronto and it celebrates his white Christmas. Me? I am happily here at home in Perth.

    I am getting some flack for my Brett Lee story – first written in 2005, he has lost a little of his “heat”, I am afraid.

    But the science is good – maybe I should just change the name from Lee to that of Michael Johnson – but he just doesn’t have that same exuberance, for mine. :-)

    Can’t believe it – set up a whole site – improved the prizes – made it look a lot more fun and now, now, I find have to get permission to run this dinky little competition from Liquor, Gaming and Racing!

    Talk about the worst of ……. so, it’s coming down in about ten minutes and will be off the air for a couple of days, at least, while we get the ‘tick of approval’ from the Nanny State of Western Australia.

    It won’t cost anything – but time and that’s what I don’t have….. it was back to work today.

    Bugger!
