It is great to have finished work for the year -and its been nice over this weekend to spend some time settled in listening to ABC describe Australia play South Africa in the first test. Especially great seeing as its been more competitive than the Kiwi's. Today has been quite a test for Ponting as a captain (I still favour the Aussies though).
On the radio, they were talking about the highlights of the year, I was trying to think about what happenend - I recalled Manly winning the NRL, and Hawthorn the AFL; on top of that 2008 saw the Beijing Games, and the European Soccer Championships (won by Spain).
