LORRY DRIVING FORCE
IF you’re a softballer and you’d never heard of Lorraine Edwards, who began her career with the Rebels in 1960, you’re forgiven. But 58 years on, softball people everywhere know and love Lorry Brown.
Yesterday Lorry was recognised by Softball SA for her service to the sport, which earned her a Queen’s Birthday OAM this year.
Lorry’s service to the sport in SA is peerless. On top of more than 600 club games, she played for SA for 20 years, coached the state for four, played eight years with Australia, was the association player of the year three times, and has contributed as an administrator and volunteer.
Traitor. Well, good to see you, too. What’s the matter?
How can you back India — in our Test?
It’s not about who I’m barracking for; it’s about who I think will win.
Well, I reckon it’s unpatriotic.
Get off your soap box. Punting is not about being loyal.
OK, then. You see Tiger Woods is back?
Yep, sport gives second chances.
Who’s the biggest name to have come back after a scandal?
Scott Walsh, after his scandalous golf round the last time he played?
Very funny. I don’t know. As in coming back in favour with the public, maybe Mike Tyson? Wayne Carey? Maybe even the great former spinner who shares your initials?
The redemption theme has always been a good storyline.
So you enjoyed my punting last week?
I’ll ignore that. And speaking of redemption, your favourite player, Nick Kyrgios, is back in the headlines, wanting to play Davis Cup and in the Olympics.
Will take a while for him to redeem himself. Same as you.
