Cutest good luck twin pack

The Advertiser - - NEWS - PAUL STAR­ICK

EMMA Dob­bin is hop­ing her twin baby boys are a good omen for an Ade­laide Crows vic­tory to­day.

If Jack and Con­nor do prove tal­is­mans, Emma and part­ner Matt Ey, 26, will have a last­ing record, hav­ing com­mis­sioned pro­fes­sional pic­tures of them in Crows gear only a fort­night ago.

“I think they’ve only lost one game since they were born,’’ said Emma, 27, a life­long Crows sup­porter.

In­deed, the twins were born on Au­gust 20, just two days after Ade­laide’s three-point loss to Syd­ney. Since then, the Crows have lost only to West Coast, in the fi­nal mi­nor-round game. The twins are the cou­ple’s first chil­dren and they orig­i­nally or­gan­ised the pic­ture as a Christ­mas present for Emma’s mother, Anthea, also a Crows fan.

“We have both bar­racked for the Crows ever since we can re­mem­ber,” Emma said.

“My fam­ily are crazy Crows fans, so I grew up with them be­ing a big part of our life.

“My par­ents are even driv­ing to Mel­bourne without tick­ets. They’re go­ing to go and sit out­side the sta­dium. All of my fam­ily have been try­ing des­per­ately to get them tick­ets.”

Emma and Matt haven’t yet de­cided where they will watch to­day’s grand fi­nal but they are con­fi­dent of the out­come.

“Most likely (we will watch the game) with an­other fam­ily with a young baby, who are Port fans, which will make it even more en­joy­able when we win,” Emma laughed.
