If any of the folk living withing a ten kilometre radius of Doomben wondered what the weird chant booming out from the race track was, it was this.
The old Wests Magpies theme song, screamed at 73 decibels by the footy legend and only popular cockroach in Queensland Mr Tommy Raudonikis, owner of the world’s most aptly named horse Fisticuffs, the popular winner of race three.
The only bugger in Australia not singing along with him was Singo.
He wants to know why Tommy wasn’t singing the Newton Bluebags anthem.
I’m sure when he sobers up at lunchtime tomorrow the great Blue halfback will sing that one too.
