Geelong thrashes Port in Grand Final

Geelong thrashing Port Adelaide in AFL Grand Final - half-time
September 29, 2007 02:30pm
GEELONG'S 44-year premiership drought looks set to come to an end after the Cats ruthlessly overpowered a below-par Port Adelaide in the AFL Grand Final first half.

Geelong was 52 points up at half time, after scoring six goals to Port's two in the second quarter. At half time, the scores were Geelong 11.13 (79) to Port Adelaide 4.3 (27).
(later I'ts now 112 to 34 and after the third quarter. This is amazing. We were so anxious about Geelong choking! And later again - the game's over, the celebration begins. Geelong won by a massive 119 points.)

Strange how we human animals take pride in belonging as a football team unites a city of 180,000 people. Ironic too that Ford has been a sponsor - a company that took away 600 jobs from our men and women!

Congratulations On Geelongs win. I was actually barracking for them, I am a crows fan! thought Ports looked hopeless from the beginning. Again, wonderful win for Geelong.

Some of my friends are really enthusiastic about football, go to nearly every match that's in Geelong or Melbourne. It's 44 years since Geelong won a grand final! We watched the TV this afternoon, armed with chips, drinks, snacks. Tomorrow I'll wear a blue dress to church and maybe even play the Cats song (Toreador song) before the other musician turns up!
When I was a child Geelong was the family favourite because Dad taught Fred Flanagan to play footie and he was later a Geelong star.
