Walking ‘round my inner-city Melbourne neighbourhood this week, I’ve been much impressed by spontaneous demonstrations of Tigerishness in front yards and shop windows. Lovely gestures of passion and hope, at a glorious remove from crass commerce. Here are just a few of my favourites:
I hope that other members of the TTBB community are enjoying similar demonstrations of Tigerish enthusiasm in their own neighbourhoods.
PS: As excited and caught up as I am in Tiger fever this week, I even subjected myself to a stretch of Channel 7’s excruciating Brownlow medal TV event. The two things that struck me most were:
- Dusty’s grace and charm in dealing with the creepy attentions of Bruce McAvaney.
- The shameless and disturbing saturation of gambling advertisements, leavened only by token pleas to ‘bet responsibly.’
