WHATTTAGAME!!!!!! I think I'm still coming down :) We made the trip to Perth, not quite sure what to expect. Playing last year's championship team . . . .and Fremantle being, well, Fremantle. We figured we were a chance, but this rates as one of the best all time live games I have ever been at! Close, hard fought and the whole 38,000+ crowd completely and utterly emotionally invested. UNBELIEVABLE!!!
For those readers who are not familiar with our fine game of AFL (Australian Rules Football) my team, The Fremantle Dockers, are in the Purple. We are a much maligned club who have not enjoyed much success in our albeit short 16 year history. But what we fans lack in accolades and silverware, we more than make up for in passion.
So understanably we are very excited that after three rounds of footy we are 3-0 (as in 3 wins 0 losses). That's right folks, do not adjust your monitors - Freo are SECOND ON THE LADDER!!!!!
And to top it off, this was in the mail for me when I got home from work today
A little tough to make out, bit it's our 10 year membership pin. Yes, ten years of pain, torture, punishment . . . I mean, passion LOL
Its a good time to be a Dockers fan, but we're not getting ahead of ourselves. It's a long season with another 19 games to go. So, as they say "Get on, sit down, belt up and enjoy the ride!"
