Its white , tight and outta sight . The AFL Melbourne Demons football jumper , guernsey , jersey is en route to Beirut . Its owner an enthusiastic , 22 year old woman , trainee journalist , and friend to my 22 year old , journalist daughter .

Their friendship was forged in Aarhaus , at the Danish School of Journalism . Disparate backgrounds . One  , a middle class , catholic ladies college educated , laterally an RMIT graduate , from inner Melbourne . The other a Paris raised , Lebanese national from an exceedingly wealthy background , born post  Civil War   . One thing they have in common , apart from a shared education and a passion for the written word , is a love of AFL Football . Unusual , but it is here they found a common ground .

Sensing the association would be a long and fruitful one , I generously gave a Dees footy guernsey , a new home in Lebanon . May was thrilled , Bridget was tearful , and I was ecstatic that I didn't have to part with one of my beloved Saints , vintage football jumpers . Ah footy , the great communicator . Its a sport that speaks at all levels .
