Yes folks, my 17 year old, Alessandro, is off in just over a week to Blackpool in England to represent Australia in pool - eight ball actually. He's just been made vice captain of the juniors. Um, I'm a bit proud!
This is Alessandro in Adelaide earlier this year representing his state against the rest of Australia.
Here he is last year in Perth - same thing.
I clipped this one out of the newspaper. You know, he has represented his state four years running. Oh and he will be wearing one of these cool green and gold vests and a bow tie like his friend Steve - look at this linkand see if you can find his name in the green square.
