Last weekend Tom's football team "The Melbourne Demons" played in the usual weekly round of games.
They have faced a lot of controversy this year in regards to their bad form.
They have lost many games........miserably.
Comments like "going to watch a team play while Melbourne watches" has been standard.
Tom has even resorted to saying "I am just going to watch the demons get thrashed".
Last weekend was different.
They began the game the same as normal.
The difference last weekend was the demons kept up with the other team and even stayed ahead the whole way.
It never happens.
This poor child watches his favourite team day in and day out and watches them lose.
He gets all of his fan gear on and goes to watch them lose alone.
Last week was different.
Second Quarter meant they were still in the lead and ....... OMG the third quarter was the same.
This is unheard of !!!!!!
Tom was in shock.
Scott was in shock.
He had chosen to join Tom and celebrate a lead for once.
At 10:17pm...... THEY WIN !!!!!
The Melbourne Demons actually won a game !!!!
Tom and Scott were bouncing around the lounge room hugging each other and high fiving.
My dad who has been a massive AFL fan (and primarily Essendon Bombers) supporter since the 1950's, apparently lept out of his own recliner and punched the air and cheered........for Tom.
Friends were sending messages and texting, just so happy for Tom.
All of these adults did not really care about that particular team, but that night meant everything to Tom.
Watching his game, the weekly ritual, was a massive surprise and brought great excitement to his little face.
Love my little man and all he brings to this family.
