Guys, I'm really interested to hear your views. It can be a paragraph, an odd thought that occured to you during the day, or perhaps a compare and contrast. The underlying theme? Why you love this state more then any other, and why it is the greatest place on Earth. From Ballarat to Bendigo to Bittern, from FernTree Gully to Frankston, and of course Melbourne: our diversity, our rich wealth in environment, our culture, our entertainment, our spirit and our footy...we are the state to be. A few reasons of my own to get going: - We have Steve Bracksy. 'nuff said, to quote the oft quoted. - We have the MCG: hallowed stage of the mightest of epics over all sporting genres. - We have EJ Teddy Whitten, perhaps the epitome of the Aussie spirit. - We have the bay. - We'll never let the Big V down.
