Manning a Day on the Green

A guy wearing a Manning #18 Indianapolis Colts jersey
 I snapped this picture of a guy wearing an Indianapolis Colts jersey yesterday at A Day on the Green concert at Sirromet winery.
I snapped it because at first glance I thought this guy was wearing a Seattle Sea-hawks jersey (which happens to be my favourite NFL team ... not that I follow the NFL all that much).
After I snapped it I realized this guy didn't follow one of the classiest teams in the NFL at all;-) 
But later on I realized he had a player's name MANNING and the 
player's number 18 on the back of the jersey.

A day on the green
Strange, since I wrote a post on the Ned Manning talk 
at the Byron Writers Festival a few weeks ago;
Manning and Malthouse and The Dead End (Drive-in)
and to see somebody in Australia wearing an NFL jersey around is extremely rare indeed.  
Ned Manning was married to Bronwyn Bancroft who I wrote about here;
Stradbroke Dreamtime
Bronwyn illustrated the Stradbroke Dreamtime book written by Oodgeroo, about growing up on Stradbroke Island.

Stradbroke Island is visible from the  winery.
It's just a short boat ride across the bay.
