Just a few days before Chrissie, there was Carlton great, Alex Jesaulenko, with a couple of Swannies’ hats in Melbourne!
Alex, and wife, Annie, met up with Swannies’ President, Phil Johns, in Melbourne. Phil says that Alex and Annie are a chance to come to this year’s ANZAC Friendship Match. If they do come out, they will certainly visit the Boomarang Bistro (home of the Swannies’ AFL Grand Final Party in Saigon) which is part-owned by nephew, Adam Zakharoff.
A summary of Aunty Annie’s conversation can be distilled down to, “If you think Jezza’s mark was a beauty, you should check out my nephew, Adam.” (“Yes, Annie. I have already. And yes, Annie, he is a top bloke. Now Alex, getting back to that mark…” )
Alex and Annie are looking at their commitments in April to determine whether a trip to Vietnam is possible so, at this stage, they are just a “definite maybe”. We’ll have to watch this space.
- The above picture of Jezza’s famous mark in the 1970 Grand Final is from the painting, “The Game that Made Australia”.
