My day started well. Mum and I had a long walk in beautiful Kings Park then we sat among the flowers drinking our coffee.
When we arrived back home mum helped me put on my Eagles jacket as it was a footy day. We walked down to the Subi Oval (whoops I forgot the oval has a silly name now that i can’t remember) and padded around absorbing the atmosphere.
Lots and lots of people stopped to pat me and say “oh he is sooo… cute! (which of course I already knew).
Just for fun I even did a Nic Naitanui impersonation!
Usually I sit on the verge outside my house on footy days but as today was the Derby I thought maybe the Eagles needed me to be closer to the oval to bring them luck. I am happy to say it worked! When I left at half time they were winning.
I went home and had a little sleep on mum’s bed (please don’t tell her, she thought I was in my own bed). Later, when all the Eagles fans were slowly walking back to their cars looking sad I realised I should not have left – the Dockers ended up beating them again.
Maybe Next year will be better?
