A Very Sad Day....

Post by Alby on Sun Mar 06, 2016 7:02 pm

Andrew would know...
Ex Geelong (AFL) player Paul Couch died yesterday of a massive heart attack.
He was 51 year old ...younger than me!
He was riding a bike when it happened....
A brilliant player in his day. Won the Brownlow medal 1989 (AFL best & fairest), numerous club and league acolades.
Your typical country bloke... down to earth and friendly.
What hurts the most... I met him in January when i was visiting the daughter at her work (cafe) (during my holidays).
For me it was one of those omg omg omg moments.. I plucked up the nerve to say hello and ask for his autograph. And even though very busy stopped for a quick chat and signed a bit of paper for me.
He'll be deeply missed.
ALso made me think about my own health etc....
