66'  revisited for Saints ?

66' revisited for Saints ?

The big Cats take on the might of the Magpies,  on Friday night .

In a sense of deja vu " , the Saints battle it out with the Bulldogs , on Saturday night , at the MCG.

Both Games, promise much .

The AFL,  is delighted with this Finals Series,  which has provided much for fans , all wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys,  willing their team to victory.

Geelong and Collingwood , worthy combatants in a do or die Final .

St Kilda and Western Bulldogs ( aka Footscray ), both teams plaqued with a lack of Finals success , are sentimental favourites in many hearts .

Who will succeed? There won't be a man left standing , nor a dry eye in the house,  on the conclusion of both games.

May the best teams win !

The Finals

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

Its finally arrived, Finals time. That great battle that teams prepare for all season.An arena for players to display their great aerobic capacity and superlative skills. Fans either rejoice or commiserate at this time of year. All are either going, watching or barracking and all are wearing their teams colours regardless of who's playing . Win , lose or draw the gargantuan struggle has begun. Its Spring and that last saturday in september the G will be full and a feeling of general hysteria will pervade melbourne town. Some are confident some are scared but all are hoping their team will get over the line at 4.40pm sat 26 sept. .Arresting is the scene depicted in the Sacred Heart Op Shop Windsor of the Saints colours posed beside religious icons .It indicates that those south of the river will call on divine intervention to break the 43yr drought for their much loved team. It would be truly a miracle if the Saints can replicate that miraculous 1 point victory of 66 and come marching home to St Kilda with the premiership cup . Needs must and when the going gets tough the tough get going and a little prayer could only help a team named the Saints who have a history of being sinners .The Doggies too have been a long time between drinks and the West will come alive if they snatch it and return the cup to the Scraysters who have waited 55yrs to taste the ultimate victory.
If it is a Grand Final between these two sentimental favourites the roof will come down on the final siren at the G .
Let the Games begin.
