WHENEVER THEY CAN SCROUNGE together enough Sydney Cricket Ground Members Passes between them, Gavin Petersen and his friends clip-clop down Oxford Street in their customised RM Williams boots with a tummy full of Justin Hemmes-sourced Little Creatures on their way to watch the Swans.
Watching Sydney’s premier AFL team live is no substitute to watching on television with Victorians speaking over the top of it – which is why they never do it.
“[laughs] yeah, whenever me and the lads can get down to the SCG to watch the Swans, we always make a day of it, [laughs] yeah. Fuck watching it on TV, there’s so much going on during a game, a camera only shows a tiny bit of it,” he explained.
“But yeah, man. The Swans are in the GF [grand final] where they belong. Pity we couldn’t make it down to Melbourne [laughs] but yeah [laughs] P-Rob’s parents have gone to Bora Bora for the week so we have his place in Palmy all to ourselves [laughs] few ‘linney linneys’ [laughs] yeah,”
“We’re looking good, but. Dropped a grand at Ben Sherman this week, got a fresh cut. Put my 26.34km run up on Facebook via the Nike App. The girls know I’m active and looking good.” he said.
However, up until last week, Petersen and his gaggle of Swans supporters jumped off the sinking Greater Western Sydney ship and climbed aboard the South Melbourne bandwagon – a relatively common occurrence amongst Harbour city residents who still think it’s acceptable to gel their hair.
In response to the huge influx of Swans supporters this week, the club has opened a number of teeth-whitening pods and hired brown people to deal MDMA close to official merchandise stands and licensed retailers.
More to come.
