Vietnam Swans make Melbourne’s Herald Sun

Posted by hanoiswans on 3rd October 2007

News of the Vietnam Swans 2nd Annual Grand Final Cyclo Parade was so big that it actually made today’s Herald Sun newspaper - Australia’s biggest seller.

Ex Swan, Chris Canty (of fame) who has returned to Melbourne but still plugs the footy over here for us, broke the good news today.

Meanwhile, Micky J, our photogenic star in the photo said he had received separate news of his fame which had originally started with an email chain that went from the owners of the Melbourne Victory Soccer Club, to Vic Wide, to Boeing (in Seattle), to the Victorian CIB (must be Dodgy Mick!), to Box Hill Tafe (who do the teaching of KOTO staff in Hanoi) before landing in Mick’s email box.

The stream of good news continued for Mick when Chris mentioned that “the article is also up on the urinal wall of Fitzroy’s Napier Hotel (Melbourne) - and it don’t get much better than that!”

The Grand Final Cyclo Parade was sponsored by Red Apron Wines, Tiger Beer and Le Pub.

Will the Swans make the papers back in Melbourne?

Posted by hanoiswans on 3rd October 2007

Rumours have been circulating since yesterday that Micky J will appear in today’s Herald Sun newspaper. Apparently, it will be a photo from the Swans 2nd Annual Grand Final Cyclo Parade which was held last week in Hanoi.

Rumour or fact? Our sources on the ground in Melbourne will let us know for sure.
