Me and sport, we’re like this we are

25 Sep

I do know how those AFL players are feeling right now. In my first ever game of netball, the score was declared as forty nil, and for the rest of that week I believed that nil meant draw. Apparently oblivious to the fact that I had not witnessed our team shoot a single goal.

    I’m deeeply saddened that football traffic is apparently not over for another year just yet. It appears that one more week of hysteria ensues. Does this mean that the people that were in attendance today will all go again next week, or will there be new tickets on sale? If so, I predict a Telstra meltdown.

    We’ll be in Melbourne next weekend. We’d been feeling kind of smug about avoiding the Grand Final crowds. Oh well. At least we already have our plane tickets.

    ‘Nil’ – I laughed so much.

    I managed to tear myself away from PC’s book reviews to watch the last five minutes of the match. Hubby and I joked together that we were glad that we didn’t have a team in the match* as the anticipation must have been unbearable. Then it ended and we looked at each other and said, so what happens now? My theory is that the AFL will never change the play again rule because how many times do you get to sell 100 000 tickets twice? The amount of money they stand to make must be ginormous.

    * did Essendon even turn up this year? I support them, in a very half hearted manner, because my Dad did.

    I’ve always played sport, but I lack the ability to remember anything that happened during the game. Even the scoreline is often a stretch. And the rules … welll, I’ve come to accept that it’s just not “me”.
