Assignment 1

  • Assignment #1: Football

Description: Dr. Topp gave us students on the first day of class a small piece of paper with a football team on it. At first we had questions; is it like “futbol” or is this considered “American football”? He told us that we have to figure it out ourselves but hinted towards the American football, but that it was maybe just a certain league in Australia. Each student received a different team and the assignment is to research the team and to 1. give its nickname, 2. its team colors, 3. its team mascot, 4. its team song 5. and any extra info such as location, what they have won, etc. My team I received is named “Hawthorn”. Dr. Topp mentioned that it won a premier…not really sure what that is yet, but I will!

  • Football Team: Hawthorne
  • Team Colors: Yellow and Brown
  • Team Song:”We’re a happy team at Hawthorn
    We’re the Mighty Fighting Hawks.
    We love our Club, and we play to win,
    Riding the bumps with a grin (at Hawthorn).
    Come what may, you’ll find us striving
    Team work is the thing that talks,
    One for all and all for one
    Is the way we play at Hawthorn.
    We are the Mighty Fighting Hawks.”
