Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon, Lions Win Australia Test Series

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. Sorry to those tuning in for your second episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps of the week, but an amazing weekend of greenygrey-relevant sport took place this weekend, so the next thrilling installment of your favourite werewolf travels Australia fantasy travel adventure has been rescheduled to Monday.

British and Irish Lions Outpace Wallabies

The weekend started off on the right paw when the British and Irish Lions caught the Australian Wallabies on the hop, winning the third test 41-16 to take the series 2-1.

It was the first Lions series win since 1997, and first in Australia since Marc Latham helped them to another series deciding win in Sydney 1989.

The Lions were more reminiscent of wolves than lions this time in Sydney, as their endurance saw them to victory after the Wallabies courageously fought back from a large opening half-hour deficit. (the Lions are of course known as Wolves in the wolf world, and Wollions in the Greenygrey world).

Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon

Then Andy Murray became the first British (thank you Scotland) Wimbledon men’s champion since 1936 on Sunday. While winning the Wimbledon warm-up tournament at Queens Murray wore a kit that has been passed by the Board of Greenygrey Sport as sufficiently greenygrey to be greenygrey.

After winning the Wimbledon title, one of the first things Murray did was to embrace the Greenygrey:

The commentator said that sporting immortality doesn’t come easily. We know that werewolf immortality doesn’t either!

Victoria, Australia Literary Nonsense Poem

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s that end of the weekend time of the week, so it’s time for the second episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. This is another quick travel episode/chapter told in a literary nonsense poem, eating up the Victorian miles before the Kerang-Kerrang epic thirteen chapters/episodes on the border with New South Wales.

Talking of Oz and 13, congratulations to the British and Irish Lions for their first test win against the Australian Wallabies, and Black Sabbath for their new album titled 13 reaching #1 in several countries, including U.K., U.S.A., Canada and Germany.

Chapter 80.  North Victoria Fast Blast 

Sizzling progress in the morning
eating up the miles from day’s dawning.
Flat out for hours, apart from the sharp bends
by noon we’d reached Kangaroo Flat north ends.
Skipped straight through for a meeting at Eaglehawk
with a California Gully who liked to talk.
We wondered if Terrick Terrick,
was named after Terrence Malick?
Pyramid Hill pointed to Kow Swamp
where we were in need of a Wee Wee Rup,
and then it was north-west to Kerang
reminding us of a rock magazine called Kerrang.

Notes

Terrence Malick (film director).
Kangaroo Flat, Eaglehawk, California Gully, Terrick Terrick, Pyramid Hill, Kow Swamp, Kow Swamp, Wee Wee Rup and Kerang are all real places in north-east Victoria.

British and Irish Lions V ex-Australian Qantas Wallabies

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. Today we preview the Australian  Qantas Wallabies v British and Irish Lions rugby union first test. It is predominantly written for a human audience in Britain and Ireland about a rugby match being played in Australia, and for readers in the present with reference to the animal spirit past and global branding future.

After writing this blog focusing on animal names I checked the British and Irish Lions tour website and found out for the first time that Australia is now known as Qantas.

That should hopefully dent the patriotic Aussies’ confidence; their journey towards a republic being overtaken by global branding!

The Greenygrey global brand can unequivocally declare that it has no plans to take over the British and Irish part of the British and Irish Lions name.

Train of Thought Reversed

Before continuing on the British and Irish Lions train of thought, the  Greenygrey apologises to Lynyrd Skynyrd and you readers for calling the Railroad Song the Railway Song in yesterday’s blog notes, after adding it because Marc Latham hadn’t; and not putting it in italics.

The Greenygrey still considers yesterday’s blog a classic, but not a completely perfect one. I think it sees now that this book writing and editing lark isn’t as easy as it looks.

British and Irish Lions v Australian Qantas Wallabies

Tomorrow sees the first of three rugby union matches in the human land of Oz; Australia; with the Australian Qantan(?) Wallabies hosting the British and Irish Lions.

On paper (or African plains) Lions should beat Wallabies, but the Wallabies have home advantage on the edge of the Aussie (Qantie?) outback, so they may be able to out-hop the Lions, and it is therefore hard to predict the result.

The Lions have been touring all over Oz, like our very own werewolf Grey, and even farther than Marc Latham did in 1989, when he saw the Lions win the deciding test in Sydney.

The Lions were doing well until meeting the Brumbies this week. I thought the Brumbies were bees descended from Birmingham, England (people from Birmingham are colloquially known as Brummies) at first, but apparently they are Aussie humans.

For those reading this in the British wolf spirit world, the British and Irish Lions are what you know as the British and Irish Wolves.

For those in the Greenygrey world, the British and Irish Lions are what you know as the British and Irish Wollions.
