It seems like only yesterday when a Melbourne punter brought a whole bloody cheese board to the AFL in a move that can only be described as so deeply Melbourne. But now, almost two years later, a new contender has emerged from the humble grounds of Adelaide.
During today’s JLT Community Series match between North Melbourne and Port Adelaide, one avid fan sitting in the front row had a delightful high tea set on show.
Captured at the Alberton Oval on Saturday, the AFL gave a little shoutout to the fan on social media.
“Shoutout to the fan with the high tea and the front row seat to the @patrick_ryder4 and @robbiegray_9 show.”
The AFL even tagged the Melbourne football club in the comments with a little cheese emoji.
See it for yourself below.
This is honestly quite a Saturday arvo mood.
However, until the contents of the high tea are revealed – if they ever will be – we’re afraid Melbourne still takes the fancy schmancy cake.
According to Reddit, the Melbourne lad’s charcuterie board consisted of assorted cheese, a baguette, an avocado, cured meats, and a whole bloody salmon in his bag.
