I was going to try and write a paean to our new god, Richo, but I couldn’t do any better than Mark Fuller in The Age today.

For 12 years [Tiger fans] have waited for a day like yesterday. That perfect day, when the imposing frame, the stunning athleticism, the unstoppable lead, the powerful mark and the raking kick would align like the bolts in some enchanted keyhole, and Matthew Richardson would play like a god.

Enchanted keyholes aside, we were there; we chanted, we sang, we clapped until our hands were red raw and in years to come will be able to say we were there the day Richo came of footballing age.
