Grand Final Victory!!

How sweet it is!!

I am back from Melbourne and what a weekend!! I can’t believe that Barry Hall and Paul Roos (Captain and Coach of the mighty Sydney Swans Football Club respectively) were able to hold up the premiership cup late Saturday afternoon. It was one of the best moments I’ve ever been involved in!!

It was a brilliant game ‒ a grand final that had everything, including a close finish, which was something the AFL world has been wanting for a few years. 2002 was close, because of the rain, but conditions for footy on Saturday were just perfect, and the 90,00-odd crowd was treated to a great game, which went down to the wire! Swans won by 4 points, and Chris Judd, the Eagles marquee player, won the Norm Smith Medal for best on ground in the GF. He played brilliantly, and perhaps if he’d had some more support I wouldn’t be so happy right now.

We went to the Punt Road Oval after the game and joined in the celebrations. I was paralytic by 11.00pm, and I don’t think we made it back to our hotel in St Kilda until 7.00am on Sunday morning, and I’ve just dragged myself home from the airport. It’s been a huge weekend and I’ve been on a high for all of it!!

Speak soon! Go Swannies!!!!!

Happy trails,

Cheer cheer the red and the white...I was there too and it was a great day. Hopefully we'll be there or thereabouts next year as well...

Hi, welcome to blog!

Are you aware there is a new group created for bloggers and their readership to meet and frolic in the chat room? (A place for serious discussion as well)

A group where interesting blog posts will be “spot-lighted” along with the links of how to get there. A place where new kids on the block can actually get seen as well as the predominant “hierarchy”.

A place where ideas can flow--from suggested blog topics, to writing "critiques", to directions on how to better use the elements of color, photos, and font style/size to make your blog more eye appealing; as well as instructions on how to better use linking to other posts.

Being that this is an adult site, we will also have a group post running where writers and their followers can indicate where they're from so maybe you might actually be able to meet some folk "local" to you.

Flirtatious banter is encouraged--crude obscene assaults will not be tolerated and are subject to deletion.

So...Stop in and have a little fun over your cup o' joe!

Here is a link to the group Blog Cafe, look forward to meeting you there!
