Thursday. 21st April 2016.

AFL player Marcus Bontempelli from the Western Bulldogs joined us at footy training tonight. The weather was cold, wet and miserable but it didn’t stop any of the kids.¬†They hung off him, they threw questions at him, and posed for dozens and dozens of pics. He was only too happy to sign everything you could think of. I have to say he was super obliging even when I asked him to sign the six training tops and football I had waiting.

He’s a great sport and ‘Good For Footy’… as the promotion he is linked to claims.

I couldn’t really use a pic of any of the kids in my blog because they’re not my kiddo’s and Colby wasn’t keen on lining up for a pic himself.

I love footy. I love what footy represents. I love how footy unites people. I love the excitement footy brings to the people around me.
