A bad month in footy
It hasn’t been a good month for the local teams, in any type of footy. We’re heading into another AFL Grand Final without a local team; Melbourne Storm lost the NRL semi-final; and Melbourne Victory is the only team in the A-League with no wins in the season so far.
I must admit that I don’t follow any of these sports too closely, though. I don’t even have a preferred AFL team, but I was hoping St. Kilda would go to the final, so that we would at least have a local team to barrack for. As for NRL, I mostly ignore it, as (it seems) most other Melburnians do. And soccer, well, it’s too new and isn’t on free-to-air TV, so that limits my chances of watching it. It’s my favourite, though, and I hope that the league will work and that Melbourne will get better.
But, it’s Grand Final week, and I’m told I have to pick a side. So… go Eagles!
