cheer cheer

boynton couldn't get up to Central Victoria for Father's Day today, but was there in spirit (watching the television) as across in Adelaide the Red and The White were triumphant over the tealed team that topped the home-and-away AFL ladder. Or to employ the correct terminology - South were sensational. It certainly was sensational barracking loudly in the loungeroom - terrorising the terrier who went out in sympathy and barked like a manic magpies supporter. After two terrible umpiring decisions at the end of the third term, boynton had to retreat for a quick hiatus into the kitchen and pretend to make tea, while recalling that old time South anxiety brew with a dash of defeatism. We were all well blooded in disappointment and wooden spoons. But South held on and boynton jumped up and down on the spot in warped joy - and imagines her father (and assorted siblings and clan members) did the same (figuratively at least) some distance away. Time to dust off the old beanie again
...You thought about it before the game, but it wasn't kind of realistic in your head Adam Goodes on victory interviewed shortly after the game...

You can say Go Pinks but NEVER Go Swannies this side of the border.

I can tell you that in my factory, the Crows contingient, (Of which I am President) were cheering the red and the white quite solidly.

Well done to South then :)

You have to love the upset win.
And you have to hate the Power.
(and the two "C" teams etc)
And even as a heritage-VFL girl, I don't mind the Crows.
