Grand Final – Australian Football League
Posted by akessonphotography on 1, September 27, 2008
For all you expat Aussies who regularly drop in on this blog today was the BIG one at the MCG – with just over 100,000 there to see the hot favourites and last years premiers GEELONG take on the second best team for this year HAWTHORN. The game was as tough as you get.
Well I can say it was one of the fabulous grand finals. And Hawthorn took the honours – winning by 26 points. My team, sadly, was not among the contestants. So I was sort of neutral, except that the Hawks Shane Crawford, after 305 games over 17 years had never played in a grand final. So I sort of had a leaning toward them,… though I wasn’t overly passionate other than absolutely loving the game. You can see all the info and action at AFL.com.au
