I'm going to have to bring up that live scoring thing on the AFL's site to at least keep tabs on the game somehow.

(I'm sure there's online streams of radio commentary, but I really don't like radio commentary for any footy code. Cricket, sure, but not footy. I'd rather listen to music.)

Going to be one hell of a final quarter.

Holy fuck, what are Port doing in the final quarter! Did the Crows forget to come back onto the park or something?

Sometimes I wish I never got into AFL, because being so connected to a particular team really hurts badly when they're losing.

Did Port actually win?! I was listening to the end of the 'Roos/Demons game, and they were doing round-the-grounds updates now and then.

Melbourne could have won if they'd been able to keep up that momentum, but North came out firing in the 4th quarter from the sounds of things.

You can be into it without being THAT into it... I was never a passionate supporter, and I take Hawthorn's mediocrity with a shrug these days. That premiership in '08 was nice but I think we peaked too soon... like I know anything about it. *L*

Yeah, and Port are still a fairly average team. Says a lot about us.

Kasabian is touring... I am tempted, but they're playing Festy Hall.

Yeah, I delved much too quickly into the "passionate supporter" status. I remember as a 9-year old 2004 was particularly hard since we were losing all the time. Were lucky to have 5 straight years of finals, seeing us win almost every game. But now, we can't even win ONE. At least our first should come against Richmond, if we can't win that then Neil Craig deserves to be sacked.

What that game tells me is that they were quite evenly matched... and yes, being evenly matched with a fairly average team isn't exactly inspiring, but the Crows gave Port a run for their money and that's not to be sneezed at.

I don't think I have it in me to be that passionate about sport, or much of anything else these days. But I guess while that passion makes it that much worse when your team's losing, it makes it all the better when they are winning. These things all go in cycles, you'll have a crap few years, and you get runs of good years too.

The Richmond supporters may well be saying the same thing...!
