I have never had much interest in AFL but growing up in Victoria I had a team - Hawthorn. I suspect that’s because I chose them as my team in the 80s when they were very successful. Before that I was too young but sort of followed Geelong as my favourite uncle did.
I’ve been to a few games over the years with boyfriends and now my children plus I worked at the MCG all through Uni and a few years beyond that. That MCG work still stands me in good stead for knowing ALL the team songs (well the gems in the comp before about 1996.
DS is a St Kilda supporter so I took him to see them in 2019 and DD is a Western Bulldogs supporter so we have seen them, she even got to play in the Auskick half time game for them once. Their dad supports Essendon.
DD wanted to go see Tayla Harris play this season but all the games we could have got to clashed with something else so no luck there
