Magpies!

Completely off topic!

Magpies!

Postby Digger » 22 Sep 2018, 09:05

We knew we had a chance when a magpie walked into Lucy’s restaurant (at Mallacoota) last night! It was an omen predicting a crushing win over Richmond!

None of the commentators gave us a chance but we got further last night than could have been hoped for early in the season.

Next week will likely be the end of our run, but what a magnificent game last night!

Commisserations to any Tigers supporters here.

not a follower of either team but the nickname colliwobbles could be a problem. Still I guess with umpires supporting Vic teams they may have a good chance. :evilgrin:

Doesn't this subject fall under the 'religion' category in Victoria and is therefore a banned discussion topic?

Go Storm.

I do not follow the game or any team yet people do not believe you, I do not know who performed in last years grand kick and giggle.
Went to join a social club and one of the questions was what team do I follow, I put none and it was not accepted.
We went out for lunch last Saturday and we had the restaurant to ourselves, we were told it was the semis and asked who we followed.
There is truly no escape from this torment.

Supported the mighty magpies all my life because my grandmother bought my older brother an official VFL Collingwood jumper one Birthday and I got given it several years later as a hand me down.
