A representative from SportsBet.com.au approached me about entering its guest blog competition on the subject of the Melbourne Cup, the horse race that stops the nation.
I blogged about the Melbourne Cup last year.
The Melbourne Cup is attracts people who are otherwise not interested in racehorsing and is one of the biggest betting events in Australia. I got into the spirit of it and watched the race with Theo and friends over bubbly and barbecue. I even bet $10 on Green Moon. I don’t know anything about race-horsing and picked the winning horse based on its name. Not bad for a beginner. Next year, I’ll wear a hat.
“Next year,” I said, and it looks like I could get the chance to go and wear a hat after all.
My blog entry, 5 Reasons to attend the Melbourne Cup, is up now at SportsBet.com.au and will be there a week. Please read it, Like it, and share it. If I get enough Likes, I could win two tickets to the Melbourne. Then I’d really have something to blog about. And did I mention that I want to wear a hat? A steampunk top hat.
