Today is that One Day in September (although this year it’s actually in October), the AFL Grand Final!
Anyone who knows me knows that I am not the sporting type. Either in the sense of participating, or watching. Sport is BORING!! And POINTLESS!! But it’s hard not to get a little bit caught up the hype surrounding the Grand Final each year – insomuch as I’m usually aware of who’s playing, and have a vague preference for one team or other.
This year? Not so much.
It’s the Cats versus the ‘Pies – or more properly Geelong vs Collingwood. Now I have a long standing animosity towards the Cats, which you’d think means I’d support the Magpies, but as everyone knows Collingwood are a bunch of jerks, led by head jerk Eddie McGuire, so there’s really nothing to separate them.
Collingwood wins? Yeah great. Geelong wins? Whatever. I really don’t care. I have better things to do with my time, like watching humorous cat videos.
