Interesting week here in Melbourne town this week. A mid November heatwave, the likes of which have not been seen before I wouldn’t think. Seriously in the pool this week, unheard of! Not complaining mind you.
Britney Spears arrived in Australia, to lipsinc her way through a National tour. Great strategy arriving, with decoy Britneys, body guards and a gratuitous amount of press coverage. Both good and bad.
Tiger Woods hits our fair shores, causing golfing havoc and traffic bedlam. Rarely have we seen such a sustained media circus for one visiting our shores.
It has done amazing things to the profile of the sport, it really is testament to the man as to how he can stay so composed with all that focus (although I’ve heard reports, he’s getting a fair temper on the course.)
I mean how would it be, to go to a place where everyone knows you, and wants to get to know you better, or even just an autograph. Your reputation has proceeded you, people are clamouring to get some of your attention. Does it just happen in Sport or celebrity?
Who would you clamour to meet, see, hear in your career stream? Do we want to admit there are people out there who are JUST THAT GOOD. Or is it just acceptable to fawn over those in the big media spotlight?
Would love to hear your thoughts….
