Its June 2005, English boy Timmy, Malay boy "Carl" (his real name was Beef Rendang or something), and I&I are watching footy on T.V. Actually, I'm heating up dinner, and these two are glued to the television. A few minutes on, Tim asks me if I follow the game, and I say, "Nah mate, cricket fan here - can't understand footy at all". We all get back to whatever we're upto. 10 odd minutes on, Carl, who's been right there all along, and been listening to us, asks me, "Hey man, can you explain this game to me". Tim and me are looking at each other, and then at Carl, in a state of disbelief.
Anyway, so last year, the Sydney Swans took the premiership, but this year, the West Coast Eagles (who had a fabulous parade through the streets of Perth today) beat the Swans by 1 goal to take the 2006 premiership. I was shattered on Saturday, and spent Sunday and Monday away from the big bad world - until it dawned 'pon me what a great comeback the Swans had staged, considering the miserable first two quarters of the game.
So this one's dedicated to the Sydney Swans. From their sole supporter in the gold and blue draped city of Perth, drowning in the Swan river, only because of my Swan connexion.
GO THE SYDNEY SWANS.
Track's titled Red And White In A Puddle Of Gold and Blue - I nearly called it Sexaholic, but y'know, being Indian and all, I need to keep the kinks locked away in a vault.
