About @ndy

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2023 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.

    GO GO GO THE DOGS. Western Bulldogs! I see the flag as I enter into Melbourne country from South Australia. Those Dogs! THOSE DOGS.

    On an aside, I looked up winning percentages since football begun to my disgust Collingwood was at the top. I think Victoria should include SANFL statistics, you know why? Victoria is not the world.
