Joey, you good thing!
Andrew Johns, what a football player. Loved watching him Friday night, hated watching him Sunday afternoon. In both cases, though, he's a class act.
I'll miss him in a Kangaroos jumper and be grateful he's not wearing sky blue in future years. I'll have to make more of an effort to watch the last few games I'll have the chance to see before he retires in a year or two. The guy's a special.
He's got all the skills, but he's also got that intangiable thing that only the truly gear players have got. He can inspire his teammates to do their jobs better while he's doing his own a bit of theirs as well. Awesome! And, despit being a bit of a lair over the years, he's also humble. A true champion!
Thanks, Joey Johns, for playing great football for a lot of years and giving me great pride and a lot of entertainment - even when you were beating my team ...Posted by Hughie at May 8, 2006 10:01 AM
