A Salute to the Great McCarthy

A Salute to the Great McCarthy

  • Comments 2

In the 70's there was a movie with the title "A Salute to the Great McCarthy", which was based on a book of the same name. I loved that film -- it was about  "Young McCarthy who was a typical country boy with enormous football potential (Aussie Rules). A troupe of rapacious and exploitative big league clubs eagerly chase his signature, to the dismay of the simple-locals with whom he grew up". It was as a spoof of Australia's obsession with sport, and the conflict between the corporate, amoral city and the virtuous, if slightly slow-witted country. It was very Australian.

So, what brings up this memory - well I got an email from our own Great Bill McCarthy, who is one of our local outstanding MVPs.

Bill is a blogger, so I have added him to the list of local Australian .NET bloggers. If you are an Aussie .NET Blogger and want to be added to this list, just leave me a comment.

Welcome Bill.
