another day, another adventure

Last night my footy team, the Collingwood Magpies, played in their second elimination final in a row - meaning they lose they're gone, they win they go on another week heading towards the Grand Final at the end of

This time they played on the West Coast, over on the other side of the country so we watched on telly which a couple of friends. Our hopes were about 50/50 as it was at a ground they haven't won at since 1994, against the team who won last year's Grand Final. The game was tough, hard, close, ending in a DRAW!!! So we then had to brace ourselves, collect our wits, calm ourselves, rub our tummies, well I rubbed mine a lot telling bub to calm down!, and prepare for overtime.

And WE WON!!!!!! I tell ya, the match was so exciting we had phone calls and text mesages from friends and family and faint acquaintances from all over the country at 11:30 at night!!! No wonder I dedicated my October Harlequin Romance, MILLIONAIRE TO THE RESCUE, to the team ;).
Now we just have to go ahead and do it all again next week. Heaven help me...
