Spurred on by an email from Joseph Papaleo who, like many Melburnians, is a hater of football teams of the South Australian variety, I thought I'd just mention that my beloved Port Adelaide Power is in the AFL Grand Final tomorrow at the Coliseum of Australian sport, the MCG, against John Pearce's hometown team, the Geelong Cats.
We held up the Cup in 2004 and in a year that had the experts struggling to put my team in the final eight, being there on that "one day in September" is a nice ending to a big season. Ah, Aussie Rules - arguably the best spectator sport in the world - could the Power hometown heroes do it in 2007?
Go the Cats!!
They’re going, alright… 🙁
A 44 year drought for a premiership broken for the Cats – well done. The Power now have a three year run without the cup … we also have the most premierships in Australian football history .. and they never even said we’d get into the finals!
BTW two good teams in a one sided match – one played so poorly the other didn’t even get to show how great they really are and have been this year – they just had to play good football – disappointing for a grand final 🙁
Oh dear … what a shellacking
