About Joe De Petro

My favourite period in history began with the Summer of Love and came to a sad end with the birth of Disco. It was from 1967 to 1975. What was not to like in those days? The Grateful Dead, Creedence, The Beach Boys, The Doors, Janis Joplin, Cat Stevens, Neil Diamond and the mighty Tigers won Premierships every other year. It was a magical time, much like the current period in history.

    That’s a very good representation of what I saw too Joe, except I watched it five rows from the fence on the north-eastern half forward flank (Tigers ticket holders area), as a very cold and wet neutral observer.

    Footy, yeah.
