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!

    Wilson – I note you’re new to Melbourne. That’s got to be the reason why you wanted St Kilda to be your “Melbourne” team in the AFL Grand Final. Everybody else in the country knows Sydney Swans originally come from South Melbourne! But a nice blog anyway….
