While I am usually an Eagles fan, today I did what lots of Western Australians did – I swapped my support to the other WA team “The Freo Dockers”. I was fortunate that my friend Val at the Subiaco Markets gave me a Dockers’ purple and white coat to wear. Mum and I walked down to the Subiaco Oval with me feeling very special. Of course I got lots of comments and a few people took my photo!
I am sure that the Dockers won because of me being such an enthusiastic fan – Well maybe the energy of the other 20,000 fans helped too).
As we were padding along around the back of the oval I saw the most enormous dogs I have ever seen. Well, I thought they were dogs. They had four legs, wonderful large brown eyes and fluffy “fly sweeping” tails. Mum, being a bit smarter than me, told me they were actually horses! I sneaked up a bit closer and said hello to them, I must admit i was just a little bit frightened but they were very well behaved police horses. From my viewpoint just 30cm from the ground the policemen sitting on them looked like giants.
So now all the fans will be off across the Nullabore to watch the Grand Final at the MCG in Melbourne
