Sweet sweet victory!

2 09 2006

Go the mighty Dockers! Another host of records got broken… This time it was their 9th win in a row, putting them 3rd on the final end-of-season ladder and giving them two chances in the Finals. And 41,112 for a home game – that’s a record too (except for derbies which are always a sell-out). And the only time EVER that they’ve had 15 wins in the 12 years that they’ve been in the competition.

It looks like they’ll be playing the Adelaide Crows in Adelaide next week, then who knows who they’ll be playing the following week – or where. Depends on how the first round of Finals matches go. A home Final would be tops!

So far, no injuries to this current team, which is good. And the boys are on a confidence-boosting high – probably nearly as much as the fans!

Tonight they killed Port Adelaide by about 80 points. That’s about as sweet as it gets. Pavlich had his 150th game and booted 5 goals; Farmer had his 100th “Wizardly” game with Freo (and his 218th [?] AFL game) and booted 6 goals.

You can’t get much better than that!

PS. Last night’s News said that the demand for air tickets to Melbourne for Grand Final week is unprecedented and Qantas has put on another 11 flights – many West Aussies are predicting an Eagles/Dockers Grand Final, which would stick it RIGHT UP the Victorians! Can’t wait…

Laying low for a while

2 09 2006

Except for football and pretty general stuff, I’m gonna be laying low for a while and not posting much. Lots of personal stuff happening which is taking priority and most of my energy. Might write about it one day, but at the moment I can’t for all sorts of reasons, not least of which is anger.
