Calling all ‘footy orphans’

30 Aug 2011

Calling all ‘footy orphans’ Image

Know nothing about footy but want to watch the AFL grand final?  You’ll be among friends at Bob’s Steak and Chop House on October 1 because owners Sanjay and Shine are new to footy too.

Although “Bob’s” sounds a very Aussie name (it’s actually North American), owners Sanjay Chimnani and Shine Dighe (pictured above) are new to Australia and are only starting to develop an appreciation for the indigenous game.

“When we first arrived in Australia we went down to Federation Square to watch the game with the crowd in front of the big screen there,” Sanjay said.  “I didn’t understand what was going on, but it was fabulous just the same!”

The Docklands couple has a better understanding of Aussie Rules a couple of years later, but they know that there are plenty of Docklands locals in the same situation.

“We want to offer our hospitality to our community,” Shine said.  

“We know there are lots of ‘footy orphans’ who would love to watch the game in the company of others.”

“It’s a chance to get to know a few other people from Docklands,” Shine said.

Sanjay said there was no obligation and no fees involved.

“We just thought it would be a great chance for a bit of social interaction – and for people who don’t know much about the game to get involved in a supportive and friendly atmosphere,” he said.

“Spend the Saturday arvo with fellow Docklanders at Bob’s with footy food and beer. What better way to enjoy the biggest game of all?”

Bob’s is at 737 Bourke St.  The game starts at 2.30pm.
