I only caught the end of the annual EJ Whitten Legends Game on TV tonight, but I did note several players have been in a very good paddock since retiring:
Derek Kickett – though he was in a good paddock even when he was playing in the big time
Scott Cummings – doesn’t just take the cake, he takes the whole bakery
Darren Bewick – adding a new, weighty dimension to FURC’dom (Pascoe Vale wicketkeeper style)
Mick Martyn – doing a Col Gray impersonation?
Leon Cameron – allergic to bee stings perhaps? (Three Amigos style)
Nathan Burke – his jib hat must have had a slimming effect in his playing days
Todd Russell – has been carbo loading in case he gets trapped in a mine again!
I’ll post a few photos when they surface on the net. Let me know if you spotted any other interesting sights during the match.
PS – TD could still get a game – with Richmond.
EDIT – Here he is, the one and only DK. Tell me he hasn’t had the odd beer post-retirement.
