Australian Rules Football. From Spain My Collingwood FC

Reading the Melbourne (Australia) newspaper "The Age" I saw this picture that brought back so many memories. Its an image of Australian Rules Football, & concretely a Collingwood player about to attempt to take a mark over the Essendon opponent.

I was born in Melbourne, before moving to Madrid (Spain) & during my 27 years in Oz was/am a feverish Collingwood supporter, apart from playing the game during my youth. I remember those wonderful players the Shaw Brothers, David Cloke, Brian Taylor, McCormack, Manasa... & tyhe rest in those glorious days.

To see that my team defeated today in the Anzac Day clash at the MCG ground (90,000 crowd) by 73 points Essendon gives me a long distant joy. Go Pies!
