Live from Uni Games ’09

Our intrepid editor and resident masochist, Jackson James Wood, is riding shotgun with Vic’s top athletes, and “tweeting” LIVE from this year’s University Games.

Here are some choice highlights from Day 1:

“Missed opening ceremony. Ah well. Bring on the games.”

“Oh wowza. This isn’t going well. Sorting out accreditation still. Headed back to bell street accommodation soon.”

“Satus update: 105 people at a place. 88 matresses. Does anyone see the problem here? Oh, and where is the bus?”

“Holy Fucking shit. The people in the room next to me —NOT STUDENTS— are prone to psychotic angry outbursts at friendly students journalists.”

Pray for him.
