The Melbourne Demons have very kindly donated this amazing footy jumper to the Vietnam Swans which has been signed by all the the players.
In addition, Hanoi has a jumper from the Sydney Swans - also autographed by the entire team (and there is a second Sydney Swans jumper in Saigon).
Hanoi will auction both the Sydney and Melbourne jumpers during tomorrow’s Grand Final Party.
The particularly generous support being received this year by the Vietnam Swans is greatly appreciated. 2008 has been a big leap forward for us with Grand Final parties in both cities.
Meanwhile, yesterday’s “Age” Newspaper ran a story with the headline, . The article mentions what an incredibly important cultural event the Grand Final is for Australians living abroad. Grand Final Parties are held everywhere “mainly in Europe and the US but also in Tel Aviv, Hanoi and Samoa”.
Go you Swannies in Hanoi!!
The article also carries a photo of the local team in Prague wearing jumper, maker of the Vietnam Swans jumper. Rooster, always keen for a burst of publicity, contacted the Blog to tell us it was his jumper. He argued, “I really treally deserve my own category on your Blog - (especially) as 4 of the 5 international finalists in the ‘Australia’s favourite footy jumper’ competition were created by the home of the World’s Most Wanted Footy Jumpers… and one with a design inspired by the world’s most wanted man”.
The Vietnam Swans reminded the Rooster that he was a feather duster before we presented him with the design for our new footy jumper.
The Blog suspects that the Rooster will not be hearin’ us… Hearin me?
