Did Don Bradman ever kick a Sherrin?
Did he ever kick a goal?
Did Don Bradman ever kick a Sherrin?
Give off a handball?

Did he ever take a mark, a speccie, a hanger?
Die he ever lay a tackle in the heat of the battle?
Did Don Bradman ever kick a Sherrin?

Did he suck  oranges at three-quarter time?
Did he change clubs in his prime?
Did Don Bradman ever kick a Sherrin?

Did he play under lights on Friday nights?
Did he have full-backs in his sights?
Did Don Bradman ever kick a Sherrin?

Did he ever kick a swag?
Did he ever cop a tag?
Win a Brownlow?
Win a flag?

Did Don Bradman ever kick a Sherrin?

A few points to note about this photo. What’s the story with that little red vehicle? Is that how people get around in Bowral? Note the wheels on the scoreboard: you’d need more than that little red car to tow the scoreboard around the ground.  And what does ‘PAR SCORE’ mean? Is there a golf course nearby?

More holiday snaps from The Holy Boot soon. Make sure you visit The Holy Boot’s wonderful emporium.
