Swans win!!


We’re into the 2005 AFL Grand Final!! What a great win for the Swannies. To be honest, I thought the Swans were gone at ¾ time. The Saints had the week’s break, and I had visions of them coming out, kicking five goals to blow us away.

Instead, we kicked seven straight ‒ and the last nine of the match ‒ all unanswered against a Sainters forward line expected to really dominate our small back line! It was great. We were cheering, and I reckon that half of the 73,144 people at the MCG were Swans fans. Plenty of red and white. Great party, too!

Now we play the West Coast, who have been the front runners of the comp all year, but we’re lucky that they don’t play the MCG particularly well. That’s our hope. Our other hope is that our best player, Barry Hall, makes it through the week and isn’t suspended for a dodgy punch in the first quarter. If Barry doesn’t play, the Swans don’t win. Simple as that!!

What a great week! Heading to Melbourne for the big game late on Thursday night!! Can’t wait!!!

Happy trails,
