Dingley Dingoes, my backyard footy heroes

May 29, 2007 at 11:51 am | Posted in All, Australia, Melbourne, Sports/Outdoor Activities | 8 Comments

While I am sleeping in on Saturday and Sunday mornings, the Dingley Dingoes , a local amateur football club has been slugging it out in our backyard, the Souter Oval. The bell and umpire whistles would wake me up and I would eventually get up and go out the back to have a look at the game and scream to my heart’s content, “come on boys”. I will have no idea of the score as I can not see it from my end but I still scream a cheer for them anyway. I didn’t even know they are on top of the ladder until Shane pointed it out to me. This is how my mornings go on weekends. A cheer or two for the boys would start my day.

Footy is very much a part of me now as is Australia. My love for sports has been fueled to the max ever since I lived here. This is why I love Melbourne and wouldn’t trade it for any place anywhere. At least not now. Sports is a way of life here. Kahit maghapo’t magdamag akong nasa bahay lang, basta may sports broadcast sa TV, ok lang ako.
