Freo's View

Roel Loopers

I received a rather macabre call from the Fremantle Herald an hour ago to ask me if I was still alive, so to the chagrin of my enemies, of which I have none, and the delight of my fans, who can all be counted on one hand, I have to declare that Fremantle’s Loopy is still kicking and not a corpse yet.

It appeared a staff member at the Chook had heard an ABC broadcast by Gilian O’Shaugnessy, in which she talked about a Freo personality who had died, and mistakenly thought Gil meant me.

My apologies for my self indulgence and spoiling the boozy wake .

    Yes it was cute to ask the dead person if he was still alive. ; >)

    “A baby humpback was this morning found on Bather’s Beach in Fremantle. Authorities tried to get it out to sea but fear it may have died after they lost sight of it”. (ABC news)
    Doesn’t sound like you, Roel.

    The only time the Chook rings you for a quote is when they think you are dead? Oh the seething irony. Ha!

    I’m a fan who starts off the counting on the second hand – but if you die, can I have your staggering number of blog subscribers!
