Mustang Murmurs

Our loyal bar manager - or Minister for Thirst - Geoff Newstead really does see and hear all, so watch out!

Hot Car (1) 
President Doug Brumby decided that the recent Upwey practice match would be a good opportunity 
to take his fully restored VC Brock Commodore for a run. He’d previously promised Bloomy (Gary Bloom) that he’d take him for a spin someday so he picked him up and off they went. They looked very cool as the V8 purred into the Upwey ground, with a few admiring glances from other car enthusiasts. All was good until it was time to go home after the game. The lads got into the car and Doug turned the key but, alas, the car showed as much life as it’s namesake - zilch. It seems there was a little problem with the alternator and Doug had to ask a few of the players for a push. A bit embarrassing, hey Pres?

Hot Car (2)
Last week Joe Crisafulli offered to take Daicos and Stocky to the footy at Donny East but, as 
they wouldn’t all fit in the work ute, Joe had to borrow the missus’s car. That was OK, except 
that Mrs Crisafulli drives one of those Chrysler PT Cruisers. Not a real “blokey” car at the 
best of times but this one has hot pink seat covers, a large dangly thing hanging from the 
mirror and a pink and white sign across the dashboard that says “sweetheart”. Not real 
good for the image, fellas.

“Tatts” a Good Excuse
Young Peter Wall had a great game in the practice match against Upwey in his first hit-out at 
senior level. Unfortunately he couldn’t front up again on the Wednesday for the Lilydale 
game. His excuse? He had a new tattoo and it was a bit sore. This is not the first time I’ve 
heard this excuse for missing a game as I remember Ricky Dent missing for the same reason 
a few years ago.

Guna….. what?
I had the pleasure of meeting Jono Egan’s dad, Dave, last weekend and he seems quite a 
character. At one stage he started explaining what a “gunagunug” was. I got a bit confused 
with what he was saying but if you want to know the answer just go and ask him. 

Doggy Doo
Many would have noticed Barrell’s new blue heeler pup, Diesel, running around the place 
recently. He’s very cute, as most puppies are, but I think it’s time for a little toilet training 
Barrell. When I was cleaning the rooms a couple of Sunday’s ago the canteen lady, Mel 
Sheedy, came up to me and said “I wouldn’t be sure but I think there might be a dog turd 
under the end table”. Upon investigation, sure enough, there was a deposit that Diesel had 
left the previous week. To make matters worse I was cleaning again last week when Barrell 
arrived for a chat. Diesel, as usual, was running amok in the rooms when he decided to take 
a leak on the carpet where I’d just vaccumed. Diesel had better clean up his act or we might 
have ban dogs in the rooms.
