What is a trougher to do…when the calendar is against you?
Do both probably, what’s the bet he does? Trevor Mallard has a dilemma.
On Wednesday night Valerie Adams will be presented with her Olympic Gold Medal in Auckland.
He will have to be there……he needs another photo op with another sports star in order to polish his own considerably waning and tarnished star.
Then he will need to be back in the House to conduct business on Thursday, continuing the Banks Bash, before probably jumping on another plane to go watch the Silver Ferns netball test back in Auckland on Thursday night.
The veteran expert trougher will have organised a “convenient” meeting or two to justify all the cab fares, return flights and the five star accommodation, when the reality is he will just be living on the large enjoying sports troughing. Remember he really has no excuse as he was stripped of the Sports Spokesperson role in favour of former New Zealand rugby and netball representative Louisa Wall.
Thru a mate I used to have a chat to Sonny at Warrior’s home games. Seemed nice enough at first but after a spell it became apparent his whole life was sport, beer, chasing young woman…not a bad day out…but not a whole life! His communication skills were banal and immature, not exactly an interesting bloke…one sports tour seemed much like the next.
It can get significantly worse for the New Zealand taxpayer. The deciding netball test is on Sunday.
