Bloodman Match Review
Love (And Change) is in the Offing
A very disappointing day for the dishlickers so I’ll talk trite in cyberspace before talking footy at South’s place.
Love and Change:
Congrats to Paul Bomber Cheevers with the birth of Bella Cheevers. What a star is our former hero, you knew back in the day if the lickers were kicking to the members end that Bomber would get the job done with June screaming on in support.
Adam ‘Media Manager’ Ray is getting married to the beautiful Monica. (Us southsiders thought he would married a Red King cricket ball)
The King Lane is having a kid with the lovely Erica. Well done King on bringing Erica down to the game, first lass seen lakeside since the Bloodman had the blondes and brunettes rolling through the gate. King did some hard work to ensure he is entitled for the baby bonus. He was screaming blue murder at Wayne Swan on budget night thinking his 5 grand had gone. He desperately wants the new Nike air pumps.
Luke and Jamie Niemi are getting married (and not to a KFC burger) but to the beautiful south ladies in Ash and Nicki.
Lastly, Captain Costello remains staunchly in love with the mirror and Seba ‘Clever’ Mahoney is tying the knot with long time partner Jabe Newson.
Clever Mahoney man the bloodman was over the moon to have him back from the big apple and from the Ohio hunt. I got to Melbourne airport a day before his plane was due to land to be on the safe side. I waited there outside the international pick up point with a picture of Clever Green. After a nervous 24hour wait, the great man emerged, ray bands on, a sassy blonde dangling from each arm. I was so excited but he just brushed pass me and said “piss off bloodboy, your with Twinkles Toes Tommy now. Ooouch.
To the Footy:
The magoos were playing extremely well in the first half. It was good to see Sugar Ray Shay Robinson out there. He flew straight from an Auckland pub after a few pots with Jake the musk.
In the second half Yarra Valley had too much run in the legs and it was hard when they went a few sausages up. Tommy Mitchell and Newman were great all day, Stubba was good getting the messages out, and could you believe it Sticks ‘Coffee & Powerade’ Phillips had number 24 on. I nearly ran out and gave him a clip. Only true South Champions wear that Sticks, but he is a life member and grew up in Ross st Port, where only the toughest survive so I let it rest.
Well done to Jimmy Barnes, now retiring after a stellar magoos career and an even better singing career. Well done mate a great servant of the club and hope you stay around.
To the big Dance.
It was always going to be difficult with Goblet, Spoes, Keals, Bracchi, Sparkles, Marcus, Paddy and others out.
In the first quarter we started well and Bobby Cheevers clunked a few big grabs. We were moving the ball nicely and it was a real tough contest. We had all the play yet could not capitalise and Yarra Valley kicked straight which killed us.
They kicked on in the second gaining a handy lead. Our backline was admirable as usual. Nick Graham, Ads Ray, Darcy, Kieran, Jools all doing their bit.
The King somehow kept us in it with 3 second quarter goals. Kicking one on the left from 50 and let his opponent know that he can party on both sides if ya don’t mind.
The half-time deficit was significant yet we were still within striking distance. It was Tommy Mac and Clever Mahoney running riot. (Amazingly our match payments of 3 dim sims and a lemonade have kept them loyal cause they could easily collect coin kicking leather in the outer suburbs)
Toward the end of the third we banged through a few to be within 15 points yet YV replied immediately with the siren sounding as it sailed through over Francis’s head.
The last quarter was a let down and we couldn’t pull off the win.
BBD disease votes:
3- Clever Mahoney
2- Media Manager Ray: & Bobby Chief
1- Jordie Heis for being hard at the pill, Adrian Lane for his left foot shenanigans, Tommy Mac probably deserves more votes.
