Mr Jingle Jangle
- Wednesday, 24 September 2014
He responds to a number of nicknames at the football club including Jase, Britty, Brizza and JB but since Sunday Jason Bristow’s teammates have taken to calling him ‘Mr Jingle Jangle’.
It’s a reference to the sound made by the two medallions that were draped around his neck following Subiaco’s stunning 16 point Grand Final upset win over East Perth.
To compliment his premiership silverware the 30 year old was awarded the Simpson medal as the best player on the ground.
Bristow’s work as Subiaco’s primary ball winner this season has been somewhat overshadowed by his more eye catching team mates, but not on the biggest stage.
“Words cant describe it… it hasn’t sunk in yet I’m still just shell shocked at the moment it’s just unbelievable I’m going to enjoy the sh*t out of this one.” An elated Bristow said post game.
The hard-nosed midfielder gathered 23 disposals, laid five tackles and kicked a crucial goal in the Lions’ premiership winning third quarter.
He led an inspired Lions midfield group that was questioned by the coach following Subiaco’s 32 point loss to the Royals just a fortnight earlier.
“That really hurt us when they touched us up in that first final and from the second that siren went after that game I just wanted another crack at them.”
“The way the guys performed in a Grand Final, it was unbelievable so we’re going to enjoy it.”
Bristow relished the torrential conditions of a water logged Patersons Stadium.
“We haven’t had too many wet days this year so it was hard to get any gauge on who it would favour.”
“I reckon when it’s wet like this it’s just who ever wants it more and the endeavor was there that can’t be questioned and we got the choccies.” He said.
Bristow is the only Lion to play all 23 games this season and is one of the hot favourites to win Subiaco’s Outridge Medal which will be awarded on the third of October.
