    Yellow and Black

    What started out as a looking like a great AFL grand final quickly turned into a one sided affair.

    Congrats to Richmond, 37 years is a long time between flags!

    I'm sad to know after Bathurst next week it means cricket season (groan). How long till the next footy match?

    Yep, well Richmond are my AFL team (though I don't follow the AFL that seriously...but I do have jersey) and the Eels are my NRL team. In 1980 the Tiges won. Then the Eels won 81, 82, 83. So I'm booking my NRL grand final tickets well in advance.

    As long suffering Tigers fans it was still a very stressful game, we, as a family didn't dare to beleive until 5 minutes to go. SIL's Iwatch was telling her to breathe at one stage!
    Pity our Tiger of old relo, Neville Crowe passed away last year and didn't get to see the team he was instrumental in keeping going win another flag.

    Paula's grandfather was a life-long tiger fan, he left the planet before this one too but got to see quite a few of the old ones. We mentioned him a few times today, I guess that all any of us can hope for.

    Two home finals for the Crows didn't help them today, at Richmonds home ground!
    ...hard to win at the "G" if you don't play finals there.

    I love grand final day. Only ever been to one but never miss watching it and getting caught-up in the excitement.
