June 20th – Wounded Warrior

IMG_6969

The one thing that really impresses me about supporting a fledgling footy club is how accessible they are.

Here the injured captain of the AFL’s GWS Giants, Phil Davis (Twitter: @phildavis_1), signs the jersey of a young supporter (ok, it’s my son).

Don’t get me wrong, he was pretty flat in his responses to questions about his current ankle injury, given that this is the second lengthy layoff from first-team action in the last 12 months. But Davis didn’t for a moment flinch at the prospect of making the day for 5 or 6 early comers (and their entourage) to today’s game.
