Timmy

Channel 7 sports commentator and sports news reader Tim Watson was once an Aussie Rules (Victorian Rules then) football player. His son now plays football for the AFL. There are the remains of a handsome man in his current photos. Top photo from the Herald Sun.



I love the seventies.

  1. Andrew, you are very cruel but I love your comment . There are the remains of a handsome man in his current photos. But definitely it is true. Life goes on... What a pity..

    1. Gosia, better to have the remains than nothing.

  2. Some fairly solid remains. Archaeological dig not necessary.

  3. They sure are better looking than league or union players most of the time.

    1. Generally I agree Merle, but we won't say that on a Sydney street.

  4. The second photo is nice. I don't follow the footy, just keep one eye on it once in awhile..i prefer the cricket :) but i am not a great follower of it, keep two eyes on it.

    1. WA, that is one eye more than I do. I do like the footy gossip though.

    1. John, I like the photo of him with his two children, a bit older but not too old.

    1. Allan, it is happening as we write. Tight jeans and body shirts. Just not for us perhaps.

  7. The top photo reminds me a little of Patrick Stewart, the bottom one like someone just woken up and still not with it.
    The picture with the kids is a good one.

    1. River, yes I see your Patrick Stewart reference in him. Bottom photo, stupified by sleep, he could be taken advantage of by anyone.

  8. He was an amazing and skillful athlete *sighs happily*. But what a ballsup Essendon have made for themselves. Why is the AFL punishing young Essendon players when the officials made the decisions?

    1. Hels, is sighs happily a euphemism? I agree, it was nowt to do with the Essendon kids.

    1. Grace, well those in the spot light have to take these things on the chin.

  12. He looks great now to me, and like a kid in the bottom photos. The one with his own children is very happy. In the one by the tree, he looks chiseled with lined tough bark, like the tree. Just normal, not sure why the post, to deride age on the human body?

    1. Strayer, I've always been interested in then and now photos and how some people age well and others don't. I consider he has aged well, much better than I have. I thought I was generally complimentary.

      Delete
    2. Ah yes, we age differently. I like before and after photos too, but brings a sadness to my heart.

      Delete
    3. Strayer, I feel pretty sad when I look at my own then and now photos, but I would argue that I started from a low point anyway.

  13. Friends of mine in Melbourne in the 1980s named their dog 'Little Timmy Watson'. AFL club loyalty taken to the extreme.

    1. Yes Victor, that is extreme. I guess Watson was a pretty good player.

  14. There was a pic of Jobe doing the rounds this week, I think it was his birthday, was very nice. He's inherited his Dad's genes.

  15. The Essendon druggie Fen? I really don't get excited by him. There was something about in his past I did not like, not about drugs though.

    1. He's only a baby. They're all druggies aren't they?
