Nothing Saaby here, just a post to note the start of the football season here in Australia. Australian rules football is, by far, the greatest game known to mankind. I was born and raised in Melbourne, which is also where the game was born and it’s something very close to religion there.
The 2007 pre-season competition got underway last weekend and my team, Carlton, beat one of it’s arch-enemies, Essendon.
Given that Carlton has endured four years in the wilderness as one of the worst teams in the competition, this rare win was something to get excited about. We’re rebuilding through the draft so it was good to see some of these young players going so well.
I might actually have something to smile about this year. Go Blues!!
