Well everyone who knows us knows that our families choice of football teams are a little different to most, see dad barracks for the Magpies, Milla loves the Bulldogs, mum follows the Kangaroos and of course I'm a Bomber. The friendly rivalry is great fun, but it means that we don't get to go to many games.
When we found out that the NAB cup footy match between the Bombers and the Bulldogs was being moved back to Melbourne to raise money for the bush fire appeal, we just had to go along.
It was fantastic. When we arrived at the station and crossed the footbridge to the ground, there were people everywhere, lots of famous people too. We bought another footy as part of a fund raiser, not to kick but to get a few famous signatures. We got a Bomber to sign the ball, a Bulldog and even someone from the Magpies just to keep dad happy. When we got into the ground we stopped to get our faces painted before we found our seats, 5 rows from the front and watched the players warm up.
Finally the game started and it was fantastic, well the first half of the game was! By then it was really really late and we were all really tired and went home during the gigantic half time break.
We never did see the end of the footy match, but apparently my team the Bombers won by one point. The important part is that we helped to raise even more money for the bush fire appeal.
