AFL Grand Final (better late than never!!)

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

I blogged last September about the fact that the AFL Grand Final was coming up, but I never followed up on that piece of information! The final was between Hawthorn and Geelong. Hawthorn had had a solid season, but Geelong were the hot favourites to win back-to-back premierships.

Hubs and I ended up going over to our friend's place for lunch, beers and footy - what a great combo! It was a beautiful Melbourne Spring day - about 28 degrees (I was wearing a summer dress!!) and we were excited!! We had decided to back the underdogs because that's a lot of fun, and plus we were also watching the game in Hawthorn. It was a really close game and heaps of fun to watch! Here's a snap from the day (of course!):

Me, Hubs, Cal & Nathan.

Although we really enjoyed backing a winning team (St Kilda are unlikely to deliver the goods for us) the real winner on the day was the company! Thanks guys for a great afternoon!! (Aw shucks!)
