All hail the Purple Premier!
Rejoice one and all because the new Premier of our beloved State of Western Australia, Alan Carpenter, is a dyed in the purple wool Fremantle Dockers supporter.
See the almighty glow emanating from Subiaco Oval upon announcement of the new incumbent last week!
This means that we now have someone to give Macca's brother a run for his money in the Number One Ticket Holder category.
Word is, he still wants to retain his seat in the outer, but only if he's allowed. A nice thought, but we don't want to expose him to any Collingwood supporters - especially those smart and wealthy enough to arrange their own interstate travel!
And, just as our State has a new Premier in office, so shall we have a new Premier in the football world - the planets have aligned, the purple moon of Uranus has cast its shadow over Jupiter and all is good in the world.
Coincidentally, in recent times my extended family has expanded by one and the newcomer is indeed a blood relative of Sean 'Wounded Knee' McManus. Need I say more...
