So much for "We're a Happy Team at Hawthorn..."

...As most of us left Aurora Stadium sad.

So today Mum and Dad said that we (Emily, Rohan and I) could have the day off school today (Monday 29th September) so we could go to the Hawthorn signings at their home ground. Yes, I go for Bulldogs and Emily goes for Essendon, but the Tassie Hawks are our favourite team when our primary teams aren't there.

Emily and Jessica (Who cam to pick us up and take us) waited in line for the signings for almost 2 hours before we left, but during that time Rohan and I took photos and had a kick of the footy. It was a very happy day for Rohan as he was very excited but he left he was heartbroken.

The organisation of the thing, firstly, was terrible. There was one huge line that led to a big bundle of the players and people wanting autographs. The actual players weren't mean't to leave the grounds until 4:30... but they all left at 3:00, for some strange reason, and left hundreds of fans upset. We didn't even get to see them up close, we saw them entering, but from a 50 metre distance.

At the end Emily asked the Manager if he could get a signature he simply said, "Sorry they've already left," even though they weren't to leave for another hour and a half, "But they will be back next year." But the thing is, how long until the season starts again?

Rohan, and many more children, looked up to these players and believed it was a once in a life time opportunity and they just silenced them by leaving early. It was fun playing on the oval but next time I hope to see more organisation to the set up.

Update: September

Well it has been a very long time since I last posted but I have decided to get into business again. Ok so you may know but I made these animations called "Jay & Stu's Animated Adventures" and I do the voices, animation and everything, but incase you haven't seen them (they're somwhat pathetic) then the link is

Anyway in the Holidays we, Mum, Dad and I, went to Sydney. Up there we met up with Collette and Nan Gibson. It was good because it was my very first trip inside the Temple, last time we came up to the mainland I wasn't allowed in, so we stood outside. We went shopping a fair bit and also went up close to the Sydney Opera House. "Oh my gosh, big woop," you might say but bear in mind it was my first time within, like, one kilometre within range, in fact I got to touch it!

We stayed at the Temple Accommodation, it's very messy

Unfortunately my camera had no batteries so I didn't get to take any photos of it with my camera, they're all on Collette's, so when I get them I will post them. I did, however, get to take photos of the Temple (which is better).
