Some fashion watchers have queried whether it may be the very suit that Graham Teasdale famously wore to the 1977 Brownlow Medal.
I beg to differ – from my close observation, it appears that Garrett, proud environmentalist and card-carrying greenie, has put his money where his mouth is, and recycled one of the chocolate brown bean bags that used to grace the floor of my parents’ house.
The crowd noise made it difficult to hear, though I suspect Garrett would have been accompanied by a Seinfeld-like ‘pfft, pfft’ noise whenever he walked.
I was pleased to note that Garrett is a proud Bomber supporter, participating in a bit of excited fist pumping as the siren sounded to end the match. Alas, no pogo dancing to the strains of ‘See the Bombers Fly Up’ to really top the night off.
