Get the fun coming, it's keeping me sane, or at least not totally crazy. We're currently stuck on the Costa Luminosa (dubbed the Hell Ship in the NY times) in Marseille. Looks like we're heading to Italy tonight! Finally seem to have action from Aus Govt and forcing the cruise company to get us home - 39 Aussies, 19 from WA. Several if us are docker supporters incl parents of an inaugural player. At least we are being wined and dined and supplied with toilet paper.

There have been around 10 confirmed cases of C19 on board and at least 1 death. We have been quaratined in our cabins for last few days but should have been much earlier, as they knew there were +ve results

Sounds like a good plan however it means I would have to go to one of their games. I'm contaminated enough

Are you sure there are no Eagle supporters on board? The West would start a crowd funding rescue and Nic Nat would get the WHO to relax it's rules a bit.

Jezzaargh - we've been calling the ship that already

CA- ethical dilemma there. My son and son-in-law are weagle members. Despite he's disabilty I love my son (and he's bought me the best birthday present - toilet paper). My son-in-law is the father to my unborn granddaughter and I don't want to endanger/upset my daughter. She has apologised to me for falling in love with a weagle

The latest escape plan is to sail from Marseille to Savona, Italy (the French won't let us disembark). Walk thru a security tent tunnel to a bus and then drive back into France and fly out of Nice. Aaargh only the Italians could come up with that plan. If it happens I may find it hard to laugh at the inflatable eagle tunnel in the future

This thing has turned the world upside down, and you are at the fore front of that. I hope they get you off soon, and you all remain well.
With a bit of luck the boys can have a win tonight, and provide a small bright spot.

Okay Gemini, it appears that some meth coast contact is understandable. How about you just drop into a training session?

In all seriousness though, good luck and really hoping you can get home soon.

Sure, being trapped on a plague ship in the middle of the Mediterranean sounds bad but I sat through the entire Round 16 Derby. I still wake up in the middle of the night hearing the opening riff to Thunderstruck, echoing through a dead stadium like the wailing ghost of Dale Kickett, cursed to wander the ground every derby, unable to connect his punches with West Coast bastards because he no longer exists on the mortal plain.
