My Idol and his disease...

If you have read my blog in the past, you may have noticed that I love cricket, and that my favourite all-time cricketer is Michael Slater. He made cricket exciting and really gave me passion to watch. His batting style has been emulated recently by Michael Clarke, who also counts 'Slats' as his idol. Slats has had a tumultuous career. From bursting into the scene, he had fallouts with selectors, captains and his wife. I've always seen through this. I've always held an unwaivering belief in the man. I gave my son 'Slater' as a middle name. So when I read today that he has been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder II, I feel resolute in my belief in the man. To be a professional sportsman, and to work through a mental disorder must be a huge challenge, and the fact that he is still here, and actually commentating on Fox Sports, is a big acheivement. He is interviewed on the best interview show ever made in Australia tonight. Enough Rope with Andrew Denton. I am very much looking forward to it. Watch it if you can, and hopefully you will get an insight into the man that inspires me more and more.
