Rec. Footy Rocks!

Walking my boys home from the park in Footscray last night I heard whistles from the Whitten Oval. Thinking we could check out the Doggies training I instead discovered Recreational Footy, the new “game for everyone”, non contact, mixed comp. Sort of like an aussie rules version of touch footy. Finally a inclusive version of footy free of local blokey club “Footy comes first” culture which demands your whole body, mind and soul! One team was short a player, so leaving the boys in the grandstand I jumped in and had a run. My adopted team “The Big Footy Bulldogs” got pumped 76 to nothing. A couple of women in the opposition dominated with the modified rules….very fast, very humbling….. but I had an absolute ball. I only know one of my teammates names (Carl )but they desperately want me back next week! Stay tuned for next Mondays results, get a team, get into it!!.
