Well, it's AFL Grand Final week here in Melbourne … and what a final it will be with the Hawthorn Hawks taking on the defending premiers, the Geelong Cats next Saturday afternoon. There's sure to be a full house of over 100,000 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for what should be a historical final.
The Hawks are looking pretty strong with lots of confidence coming off their big win over St.Kilda on the weekend … BUT the Cats will be ready for them.
My prediction – the Cats by 3 goals!
P.S. I was excited to be able to attend my first ever Grand Final yesterday (September 27th), along with 100,011 other people. What a game it was! Unfortunately, the Cats did not play their best football and ended up losing to the hungry Hawks by 26 points. The Cats had their opportunities but didn't take advantage of them and ended up paying for it. It's really disappointing, especially after they had their best season ever. Thankfully, I think they have another few good seasons ahead of them and I think they'll be back hungrier than ever in 2009. We'll have to wait and see …
