GEELONG WIN AFL GRAND FINAL 2011 – CONGRATULATIONS FROM AUSSIES ABROAD!

The Geelong Cats won the Australian Football League Grand Final today at the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground).  We Aussies abroad are a long way from home but congratulations!

Great to hear have the sms messages from home rolling in…….

Go the Cats!

The strange this is that truly, I am not a big football fan although football is usually a big part of an Aussie’s life.  But somehow when you live abroad and you know that feeling back home and your own home team has reached that almighty grand final and you want your kids who were born out of Australia to know what is it like…..well then some love for a game of footy creeps in.  Go the cats.

Melbourne Cricket Ground at a regular match Geelong vs Hawthorn, 2010.

So from the SMS’s I received, I knew that Geelong were trailing 2 points at half time, and winning by seven points at three quarter time then won by so many points in the end!

CONGRATULATIONS GEELONG.   I will wear my Cat’s scarf and beanie in the next days around Erlangen, Germany………Well done and poor old Collingwood….better luck next time.

C’MON THE CATS!!
