We Heard Some INSANE News About The AFL Grand Final...

Rumour has it Pink will be the pregame entertainment at the Grand Final.

Former West Coast legend Glen Jakovich made the prediction with Paul & Lise on Thursday morning.

“I’ve been hearing some nice whispers, but I can’t confirm it,” Jako said.

Pink was recently in Australia as part of her Beautiful Trauma tour and is currently performing a string of dates on the New Zealand leg.

What he could confirm was that the AFL had contacted her but he stopped short at whether they could get the deal over the line.

“Even if Collingwood play Richmond in the grand final and Collingwood were to win by one point, I still think the pregame entertainment would be better than Collingwood winning the grand final,” Jako said.

Paul, a staunch Pies supporter, said he was insulted but Jako continued.

“I’m just saying the magnitude of a very close game, she’s awesome man.”

Lise asked Jako if he actually went to see Pink when she performed here, to which he said he was away at the time for her one and only Perth concert.

Actually, Pink did four Perth dates, plus shot a video clip in Northbridge. Her Aussie leg of the tour had also been fraught with illness.


Paul then mused about past pregame entertainment… to which Jako immediately thought of the 1994 grand final where the Eagles played Geelong.

“The Seekers did ’94,” Jako instantly recalled.

“I remember Guy McKenna running out of the warm up to listen to them and he wasn’t doing the warm up”

Guy McKenna loved it

And he was humming it in the warm up and we’re looking at him going ‘are you right, we’re about to play the grand final’… Georgie Girl, he was singing that”

“He was singing that at pregame, we’re firing up and David hart’s bumping into him and David Hart turned to me going ‘are you serious? He’s singing The Seekers’.”
