Most , are dressed in their teams colours , including football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys.
Cheerful expectation builds as the Ground gets closer.
All walks of life are represented . A feral , hippie young woman, sporting patchwork pants and dreadlocks with her Saints jumper on top. Family groups with flags , and kids with their favourite players number on the back of their jumper.
Groups of Gen Y’s in their jumpers , beanies or scarfs . There are also the senior fans with hand knitted scarfs , thermos ‘s and grey rinse perms , who have loved this game , and their team,Â and come to the footy , throughout their long life .
All love the footy .
