1 May 2018: Daily flights Canberra
to Singapore and the world

Please stay, LJ!

By toriness - 15 March 2010 28

Will someone pass the hat (the biggest hat in the land) around please to convince Lauren Jackson to stay in Canberra and keep on assisting the Capitals cream their opposition?

As the article says she loves it here in our fair city, so let’s give the best female basketballer in the world another reason to stay.

I for one love watching her play and would love to see the Canberra Capitals win some more back-to-back WNBL titles and cement their position as the most successful team in the history of the competition.

What’s Your opinion?

I still think we should have a 50 foot statue of Jim Morrison straddling the federal highway at dickson.

Come on, you know you want it…

Every time I drive through Phillip past that hideous tower of flats with 7 foot ceilings … overlooking roads and a mall, I think of Lauren Jackson, paid to feature in their shonky advertising campaign (I suspect they had to film her on the balcony, because her head would have hit the ceiling inside). They gave that public-housing-esque block some fancy name, and LJ was filmed looking out over some sort of vague “cosmopolitan” lightscape and pretending she was going to live there. As if! Frankly, that reminder of Lauren Jackson’s lust for money she didn’t need is all WE need. Greedy dishonest bitch!

Surely she’s worthy of having a suburb named after her?

I think you have to be dead to receive that particular honour.

Yes, that can be arranged…

All for the greater cause of honouring LJ of course.

Seriously who puts up statues anymore?!

Saddam Hussein?

No wait, his statue building career ended prematurely….

So we have all sorts of hassles with government spending, and are trying to find $80M in cutbacks, and yet we can pay some chick to chuck a ball through a small hoop?

I propose we start up a Lauren Jackson Memorial Pothole Scheme.
Anything over the size of an A4 sheet of paper can have her name stencilled around the outside.

Awww but Nicole Romeo is so much CUTEr!

Lauren should continue to shine on the world stage. She’s outgrown us. If you love something, set it free. And sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. Farewell LJ, and know that we love you.

PS: Nic is hotness.

Agreed, not from taxpayers’ pockets – and no more statues either, of LJ or anyone else. Honestly, what are they thinking? Don’t they SEE the potholes, uncut median strips etc?

Maybe they could name one of the potholes after her
