Matthew Baldwin's Layer 6 Commentary


Okay, I'm going to send you to Wikipedia, but only if you promise to not start clicking link after link after link until two hours from now you suddenly come to your senses while starting blearily at the entry for Starcade and wondering what happened to that Layer Tennis match you had been watching.

Ready? Here you go: Starcade. No, wait! I mean: Cape Town.

According to that page, Cape Town has wet winters and dry summers, the latter of which are described as "very warm" (apparently "hot as hell" has no strict metrological meaning). "The Peninsula gets frequent strong winds from the south-east, known locally as the Cape Doctor, because it blows away pollution and cleans the air."

Adam describes his hometown thusly: "It's like the land Europe forgot. Like that distant relation that you actually have a lot in common with... except they are more laid back and better looking."

"We also love to braai in good weather," he adds. "Braai = BBQ". (In a further clarification, he tells me that his use of "grey" is because that's the British spelling, not a paean to Erin Grey. Dude, I thought we totally bonded over that.)

Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Matthew Baldwin.
