Melbourne is set to cash in on its first premiership since 1964 and the club isn’t holding back.
Along with the usual array of stubby holders, stickers and mugs, the Demons shop features two Alex Liddy Acacia Premiership Cheese Boards retailing for $110 and $140. You can also get a knife block, premiership steak knives and for the remainder of the pandemic a winner’s face mask.
For lovers of timepieces, there’s a Bausele wristwatch for a cool $999. Sadly, though, Oddie couldn’t find any red and blue snow skis for next winter.
Hats off to Google
Clever little rascals they are at Google. When you search for Melbourne Football Club online you get the results and then a fireworks celebration on screen to mark the victory. Blue and red of course.
Change at council?
We are weeks away from the mayoral election, but all is quiet on the scuttlebutt front.
The only rumbles Oddie has heard were last week, and that was an actual earthquake.
Usually in the lead-up there is a lot of lobbying and whispers of who promised who what.
Could it be that there will be a seamless transition from Mayor Kim O’Keeffe to Deputy Mayor Rob Priestly? One ear is firmly to the ground.
With all the social media talk of people isolating and testing on Monday Oddie was waiting for new exposure sites to pop up on the official list, but they didn’t.
Seems a lot of people already knew about Shepparton Marketplace, which was finally announced yesterday, but not as a Tier 1 or 2, as everyone expected. It is Tier 3, which means if you were there, just monitor for symptoms. Only the male toilets were Tier 2 which will be a relief to shoppers, except those blokes who relieved themselves.
