I think you're the first person to pick the Avatar (and say something)!
Cheers. I Have the Comic of the TV Series as well sealed up somewhere in the garage. I really loved the Keith artwork in his comics and how they used them in the tv series. Painted him a few times as well and still have them on my wall. Anyway, go Pies!!

1) How did you come to be a Pies fan?
2) How old were you when you went to/watched your first game?
3) Who's your favourite Collingwood player?
4) What is your favourite Collingwood

Hi all,

Q.1. My mother barracked for the pies, my father whom I didn't and still don't really like barracked for Richmond.

Q. 2. I can remember the 1977 Grand Finals, I was about 6.

Q.3 Growing up it was Daicos, now it's Pendles.

Q.4 I have 2 that really stand out. I was in hospital and watched the 1980 escort cup, but for the first time I watched VFL in colour TV, I was in awe. Although we lost, the greats on both of those sides is something I will never forget.

The second was the prelim 2010 against Geelong, I hate Geelong but being there watching Leigh Brown kick a mongrel 65 or 70 metre kick that somehow bounces through for a goal was amazing. Hearing the chant, just loved it. My wife who originally barracked for the Crows and now a pies supporter and member also says she hasn't experienced anything like that night at the footy.

I thought from that night we were going to win the big one. Going to the drawn grand final was very hollow. Thankfully they made up for it the following week although I didn't go.


Cheers.

Nice to meet someone else who hates Geelong
