I've been remiss in failing to note the death of WA sports compere extraordiaire, Wally Foreman - who was buried yesterday.
When I first arrived in WA, I thought he was just another one of those shiny-arsed sticklers whose prominence owed more to bedding Ben Cousins or Brian Burke than to any innate talent.
However, a couple of months back, I had cause to speak to Wal'. Although not knowing ol' SuperFreo! from Adam Goodes, the bloke spent 25 minutes helping me out with a piece of Olympic trivia - and he was at work at the time.
Now that's a regula fella.
I'll miss your broadcasts, Wal.
