Politicians and journos shoot hoops for the SSF
The Minister for the Arts, Simon Crean, and the Minister for Sport, Kate Lundy, joined the real showdown in Canberra today: the much-anticipated netball match between politicians and staffers, and the journos of the National Press Gallery. Warren Snowdon and Bridget McKenzie displayed fine ball skills; journos captained by the inspirational if injured Jacqueline Maley were surprisingly athletic in their coverage of the Parliament House Netball Court. It seems the pollies may have sneaked in a few more goals, but the winner is the SSF - at the end of the game, the Australian Parliament Sports Club presented us with a giant cheque for $3,500. Huge thanks to everyone involved.
