The Varnished Culture found themselves at a loose end on Sunday last! Glenelg had the ‘bye’…Norwood also had the ‘bye’.
A sublime autumnal afternoon in Adelaide got us walking, walking, walking…we went past Peter Motley Oval (it used to be Unley Oval – and was re-named after a Sturt Great, who also tells the best jokes P has ever heard) and decided to see what the fuss was about.
The fuss was that Central Districts (The Bulldogs), a very good team, had shot-out to a four-goal lead and then gone to sleep. The Double Blues came home with a wet sail and won by 21 points. Well done Sturt! L and P would applaud, except we both hate you! Oh well – all the best…we love the oval though. It is like a village common, and a great exemplar of local footy.
