Go Blues

“Well, either side could win it or it could be a draw…”

Dermott Brereton

Every Saturday afternoon during the season, Violet Walsh went to the football. She went to Sturt games, both home and away. Her neighbour Elsie drove them in her Mini. They had chairs, food, hot coffee and a fixed favourite spot at every ground. At Unley she sat just to left of the coaches box on the members side. Always right on the fence. An impeccably mannered woman, she could unleash a withering volley of abuse if someone roughed up one of her blue boys. I sat next to her and loved every minute. #grandoldflag #letsmakelemonade
