She was made popular by the series Tiger King, but Carole Baskin is backing the Lions to reign supreme in tonight’s final via a video shout-out.
In a recorded message shown on Seven’s coverage this evening, the infamous Baskin pledged her allegiance to the Lions – despite struggling with the pronounciation of Brisbane.
“There’s this fascination with who’s better: Lions or Tigers?” she said.
“That’s all I hear.
“These kind of Tigers – the Brisbane Lions taking on the Richmond Tigers – in the finals of the Australian Football League… these kind of Lions and Tigers I can talk about… kind of.
“I hear it’s called the Big Cat Derby – that’s cool.
“I want to wish the Brisbane Lions good luck and let you know that I’ll be rooting for you.”
