This took place in my old home town Down Under yesterday - S.L.

The Mighty, Mighty Collingwood Magpies kicked five goals in the final quarter to overcome a 17-point point deficit and beat Hawthorne Hawks 68 to 65, thus qualifying for the Australian Football League Grand Final.

Yesterday's win advances the Magpies to the Grand Final against the Geelong Cats (winner of Saturday's match between Geelong and West Coast 117 to 69). The Grand Final will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, October 1 and I'm contacting the Australian Embassy in DC tomorrow to find out how we poor ex-pats can follow the game.


If football was played the way I make war, Collingwood should send twenty-two lambs hearts wrapped in butchers paper to Geelong's locker room, right before the match.
