That Time Zone thing got me again - just dialed in 'AFL GRAND FINAL' on the Search Machine and just found out the game has been played and the Cats - sadly - won . . .

Geelong 119 - Collingwood 81

Mitch Duncan celebrates with Cameron Ling of the Cats during the 2011 AFL Grand Final match between the Collingwood Magpies and the Geelong Cats at Melbourne Cricket Ground on October 1, 2011 in Melbourne, Australia.

Dale Thomas of the Magpies demonstrates why Australian Rules Football is sometimes referred to by Brits as 'Aerial Ping-Pong'

Mitch Duncan and James Podsiadly of the Cats celebrate with the Premiership Cup

I dunno whats worse - not winning the Grand Final or losing to a team called 'The Cats'

Gracious Sportsmanship:

To my beloved 'Pies: Hey guys I tried . . .



  1. Well commiserations anyway, Sean.
    As I've been consoling myself this past week, there's always next year.

  2. Sorry for your loss.
    Maybe next year we'll see an all bird Final:
    Crows vs Magpies.
