Nick Shiell’s mother, Robyn wrote in the other day to say,
Just got an email from Pearcey. He was having a BBQ day at his work and everyone was told to wear a unique hat. Pearcey said there is nothing more unique than the Swannies cap I sent him last year (he is a Sydney Swans supporter).
Gee the Swannies certainly get around !!
This sounds like an incredible and unbelievable story. Accordingly, the Swannies’ Website, well known for its tough, fearless, investigative and award-winning journalism, tracked down Pearcey for further comment. Pearcey wrote:
I was given a Vietnam Swans cap from my good friend Robyn after she had visited Nick in Vietnam. Being a Sydney Swans supporter, Robyn thought the cap would suit me. Recently I had a work BBQ, and all attendees were requested to wear a unique hat. I thought the Vietnam Swans cap couldn’t get more unique as there would not be too many in Australia (Ed’s note: Swannies hats are becoming as common as muck in Australia. Honk!).
I caught the attention of my work colleagues and subsequently I was awarded the “Best Hat” prize: a nice bottle of red wine.
Congratulations to Pearcey for winning the bottle of wine for the best hat competition! Great effort. Great result. Great hat!
Nick speaks out: Wow! What a photo… Mate, I’m feeling pumped up and ready for an ANZAC match again after looking at that one!
