We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming...

... to bring you a special tribute.

We knew it was coming - but hearing him say it is different matter. There were sniffles in the House of Onion.*

Mooooooooney
Moondog
Moo
The Big Hairy Cat

He goes by a lot of names. He was suspended for a lot of matches.
He grew a lot of hair and kicked a lot of goals.
He brought energy and passion and toughness to the club.

And he brought the love; Mooney always brought the love.

Here he is sharing the love with Gary.



Here he is sharing the love with Steve.



Here he is sharing the love with Matthew.



Here he is sharing the love with Wojo, Jimmy and a Big Hairy Seal.



Here he is sharing the love with Alan Didak.



Here he is sharing the love with Brenton after Geelong lost That Horrible 2005 Semi-final when Horrible Nick Davis kicked all those Horrible Goals.**



And here he is sharing the love with his son after winning the 2009 Grand Final.



Oh Mooney - we'll miss you! Thank you for everything.


* To be strictly honest, most denizens of the House were sniffle free. Most Onions don't even know who Cameron Mooney is - but the two who do care enough for everyone. (And if denizens of the House don't like it we'll jumper-punch you a few times, then hug you after the game.)
** It's okay Moons - only two years until you win a flag. We are Geelong.

Whilst I didn't sniffle because my allegiances are aligned elsewhere, this was such a fun post!
