I'll never forget coming home from the MCG in a tram in '94 after the Eagles
had won our second flag from the pathetic Geelong. Two drunken slobs started
picking on our ***age daughters and were ragging them about singing all the
words of the Eagles' song. Let me tell you MAccA our euphoria about taking home
the WEG, poster buying all the memorabilia on the Sunday after the match and
proudly wearing the blue and the gold far outweighed knowing all the words of a
song. The only singing we did was "Happy Birthday" to Gary Ablett every time he
got near the ball in the last quarter and that wasn't that often either. As
Mick might say the club song won't win you any games.
