It was good old fashioned Footy Fun at the RecLink Cup on Sunday .

Who wore this on the Day ?
Who wore this on the Day ?

At the Elsternwick VAFA Ground the wasted , grizzled Espy Rockdogs took on the fit looking Megahertz .

Kids on the oval kicked battered Sherrins around , hip young things wore Vintage Footy Jumpers , made before they were born , and the queue snaked around the ubiquitous beer tent .

Pre , half – time and after match entertainment was provided by local muso’s  , who covered many great Aussie Rock songs penned by Nick Cave .

Dogs ( canine variety) ,  stationed around the boundary   , whined when their namesakes  rolled out a transvestite cheer squad. Undaunted , their team  , displaying beer paunches and tragic hairdos , went on to snatch victory from the slick  Megahertz .

The Megahertz walked the walk and talked the talk emblazoned in their garish,  red and white striped footy jumpers . They supplied a resplendent , baton twirling ,  group of femme fatale , Hertzettes  cheer leaders .

Good sort Dan Sultan , led the Dogs , who played in the red , yellow and black  indigenous coloured footy jumpers  , to victory . The Hertz had their colours lowered on the day and have put their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys away for next years re-match .

Not a bad day’s entertainment , all for $5 in the kitty , for the RecLink organisation  .
