TTBB’s old mate and constant supporter Tiger Tommo, last heard of in Kenya, is currently working in Madagascar. He’s just been in touch to say he’s coming to town for Round 1, he’ll be outside the G with a radio and a few beers.
EDIT: this has been overtaken by events. As of midnight tonight all arrivals in Australia are required by law to self isolate for 14 days. Tommo won’t be at the MCG and that is terrible for him, having come so far.
TTBB is in favour of these measures. We love our footy but these strong measures instituted early will save lives. We have to learn from what has happened in other countries, where people now wish events has closed down earlier.
There will be thousands of sad stories like Tommo’s, but we’ll get through this by sticking together and all staying apart.
