Tue, 13 Sep 2005 - McDonalds for adults

Canberra seems to have many more (per capita) sports and community clubs (like Labor clubs) than Adelaide where I grew up. I was talking about them to a work colleague today and realised that the best way to describe them is "McDonalds for Adults". Cheap, dodgy food with poker machines and big screen televisions substituting for playgrounds and happy meal toys. I wonder if the meme "Sporting clubs are the McDonalds for Adults" will spread at all.
