It's that time of the year again...
« on: September 24, 2009, 02:22:25 PM »

"Festival of the Boot" kicks off tomorrow with the AFL Grand Final between the Geelong Cats and the St Kilda Saints.

For Geelong this is their third consectutive Grand Final appearance having won the first year and then losing last year.

For the Saints it's been 12 years since their last appearance in a Grand Final.

Clearly the two best teams this year by a country mile.

Even though the weather is going to be ordinary with predictions for hail it should be a cracking game.

What else can be be expected on the day:

* Kiddies giving it their all in the pre-game entertainment
* The Pre-Game entertainment will generally suck
* A donnybrook will break out in the first few minutes of the game
* Players from both sides will get a pretty decent touching up early on
* There may be a Christmas Handshake or two exchanged

My tip: Geelong by less than 10 points.

Given the weather forecast the game will probably be played under lights and with around 100,000 fans.

It'll look something like this:
