First let me start by telling you all that I am a fanatical football fan (Aussie rules), much more than my husband and especially when my team are playing. I am one of those crazy fans that scream at the T.V (because don’t you know the players can hear me?), give tips to the coach (because he can hear me too…) and scream at the umpires (lucky they cant hear me) and I get completely absorbed in the atmosphere of the game (from my couch).
I love the Brownlow count – well of course I do… it combines football and red carpet… so I look forward to the Monday night before GRAND FINAL weekend (yes I gave it capitals, GRAND FINAL is very important) every year. This year, I was with my mum and my sister and we had all the kids fed and bathed all before 5:30 so we could watch the red carpet (a big thanks to Dad who finished the dishes!).
The Brownlow is one red carpet that I love to watch, most of these girls aren’t models or actresses, they are just like you and me, some are wives and mothers (and a few are expectant mothers) and most are just happy to be heading out all glam with their man. I think they all looked gorgeous, even you Brynne… in your own unique way.
