The biggest footy weekend of the year

The biggest footy weekend of the year

It's the biggest sport weekend of the year in Australia.

Everything has stopped for the AFL (Aussie Rules Football) Sydney Swans vs Hawthorn and the Swans reign victorious.

Cheer, cheer the red and the white,
Honour the name by day and by night,
Lift that noble banner high,
Shake down the thunder from the sky
Whether the odds be great or small,
Swans will go in and win overall
While her loyal sons are marching
Onwards to victory!

Then on Sunday we had the NRL (Rugby League) and its The Bulldogs vs The Melbourne Storm and The Storm romp home. I'm very pleased because The Bulldogs knocked out South's (Russell Crowes's Mighty Rabbitoh's) and I've been feeling very sore and cranky since THAT GAME.


I am an ex-Melbournite and have a soft spot for Billy Slater and Cameron Smith.

and The Newtown Jets romp home to win the NSW cup. YAY.

Go the Storm. It's a win for New South Wales and a win for Victoria this weekend.

And you thought this was a blog about parenting!!!
