The Footy

When I was having my holiday at Grandma's house, I went to the footy. Milli stayed with Grandma and I went in to the MCG with dad and Granddad.
We caught the train in to the city and then walked to the 'G'. I was so excited about going to the footy that I didn't even want to watch the end of the ANZAC parade or stop and play at Birrarung Mar. I didn't even want to stop for a rest with Granddad, I just wanted to get there.
When we finally made it there, there was so much to see and do. It was amazing. I didn't think that going to the footy would involve so much singing. We sang Waltzing Matilda, True Blue and Advance Australia Fair as well as lots of other Aussie songs.
Lots of special people were at the MCG, people that were driven around the ground while everyone cheered. I am not sure why they were so important, but I think it had something to do with the people keeping Australia such an amazing place.
Eventually it was time for the footy. Dad and Granddad both cheered for the Magpies, but I like the Bombers too, so I cheered for everyone. Dad and Granddad were really happy and kept singing 'Good Old Collingwood Forever'. I sang that song too, but I also like the song about the Bombers going up.
I had a great day at the footy. Hopefully dad will take me to more footy games, maybe even a Bulldog game because Milla likes the Bulldogs this week.
Go footy (and Skaifey too)
Love AJ Pickle
