Yesterdays mail delivery at Two Traveler’s Plaza included a package notification from the USPS. As it happens we both had today off so this morning after breakfast I headed to the Pratt Post Office to claim my unknown parcel.
Turns out it was my 2013 Member Pack from Collingwood F.C.
Back when Traveler Nell and I decided to make a go of it I understood there was only one condition. I had to convert to Australian Footyism. Nell is MAD for the Magpies for many years. When we got engaged I wrote to our excellent president Eddie McGuire to request a letter of acknowledgment which he did send.
So I have been an International Member of the ‘Pies for three years now and every year I get a cap, a scarf and a polo shirt.
This year Collingwood is partnering with Star Athletic to make a “For Footy” uniform. We’ll see.
Here are some of the other Corporate Sponsors
The 2012 Shirt
Here they are all lined up.
And here is my long sleeved game-day Guernsey I got in 2011. Notice the Gold AFL Logo indicating Collingwoods status as defending Premiership Champions.
The NAB Cup starts while we are away, but we will be home in plenty of time to see the ball bounce on the new season.
