A sporting post

Normally I don’t talk about sport here, mostly because I don’t play a lot of sport any more and the football (AFL) club I support is one of those “love them or hate them” teams. However, it is finals season here in Melbourne and that means ALL talk is about the football.

Last night, I took my father to the Collingwood versus Adelaide semi final. A do-or-die game, if we lost we were out of the finals. And at half time, it looked like the Mighty Pies might be goners. Whatever the coach said to them at half time worked; as they staged a remarkable comeback and were ahead by five points when the final siren sounded.

It was wonderful. The end.
