A local Richmond fan has angrily microwaved his retro Aussie cricket shirt following the national team’s unexpected loss to India in the Brisbane Test this evening. Watsonia man Darren Jamieson took the drastic action less than half an hour after the close of today’s play, taking to social media quickly afterwards to publicly announce his disappointment with the Australian team’s performance.
Speaking to The Watsonia Bugle just moments ago, Jamieson said, “Usually I zap me footy membership about halfway through the AFL season, but the Tiges have been pretty good over the last few years. So, it was nice to fire up the microwave again to vent some of my sporting disgust. I mean, seriously, the Aussies don’t lose in Brisbane, so this is a joke.”
When asked if he regretted destroying his piece of sporting memorabilia, Jamieson was unrepentant. He said, “Nah mate, it was just what I needed to do. Plus it’ll give me something to say when I call talkback radio tomorrow morning to try and get my 15 minutes of fame. Haha.”
