Firstly, unlucky to the Bombers in the NAB cup - I landed in Melbourne on Friday night just in time to catch up with the game on delay in the 3rd quarter, about 5 goals down and dragged themselves back into it against the current champions (shiver). Always easy to get carried away with good performances in the pre-season (actually I wouldn't know, in the few years I've followed footy we've generally been shit in the pre-season games!!). Anyway, our opening matches will be a good test, the Doggies, Swans in Sydney, Saints and then Carlton should make sure that no-one gets carried away - and if we do get 2 or 3 wins out of those games then it should give the squad a good amount of confidence.
I'm just raring to go to the footy in person, off to Carlton-Richmond on Thursday night (my other half's family are all Blues) and then more importantly the Bombers on Sunday arvo!! BRING IT ON!!
