1 December 20084 December 2008 Main Posts We wuz robbed: Overland loses cup to Meanjin admin On Sunday, Overland and Meanjin held a joint Christmas party in Melbourne’s Edinburgh gardens, an event that also revived the two journal’s half-century old sporting revival. Fittingly enough, Chris Wallace-Crabb (pictured here with Overland‘s John McLaren), who opened the batting at the first Overland–Meanjin cricket test, took to the field for the first Overland–Meanjin soccer game. Despite the almost complete inability of any of the participants to actually play soccer, the game proceeded to a one-all draw, before the referee, Overland‘s inexplicably fair Rjurik Davidson (pictured), insisted on a penalty shoot out, at which Meanjin eventually triumphed. Thanks to everyone who attended. Training for next year begins at once.
