The Lions have been strong this season - not up there with the Cats, Dogs or Hawks, but have been pretty solid, nothing to be ashamed of (although we beat them in the first round!). The Tiges have been very valiant this season, earlier on you wouldn't have thought they'd be a chance for the eight, but you would be pretty sure that they'd give better teams a shake. However, now it's gotten to the point that if they win tonight, they're in the eight!

Oh god, now Richmond's trying to run the clock down with five minutes to go and are now two points behind. You dumb buggers!

So, after Brisbane got their final point and Richmond had next-to-no time to get the ball to the other end of the field and score the winning goal, I totally was not screaming at the TV "RUN YOU BASTARDS, RUN!" ...

Ahem, anyway. What are the rest of you up to?

What a fucking cliffhanger. Glad I don't have any more emotion invested in that than I do. If the Tigers were Wellington and the Lions were Auckland, I'd have been unable to watch.

I'm glad that AFL isn't like League to you, and that you can actually get into a good game. I don't know how the Tigers will go for the rest of the year, but I think they're on the rise.

When's the Tri Nations game start?

The main problem for me with AFL is that I just haven't had a team to follow. I like the sport, as long as it's not too low-scoring. But without a team I really care about, it's hard to give a damn week to week. Now that Richmond are actually playing as if I should care, though, I think I can get into it. Looking forward to next week.

Still over an hour until the rugby.

I need my All Blacks fix! I haven't seen them play at all this year yet, except for a few minutes at an Irish pub when we were thumping Ireland and I figured I better not make it known that I'm a Kiwi ...

That's cool. I hate to say it, but the next Tigers game against Geelong at Skilled Stadium, but never fear, whatever happens there, it's something most of us have had to face this season. They lost against the Cats earlier on in the year by 30 points, which isn't that bad considering.

Damn. Are you doing the wine thing tonight? I will obviously be going to bed earlier than usual tonight (I think I'll have a Wexford [Wexford > Kilkenny > Guinness] and then hop to bed) but yeah, would be fun to see a bit of that.

Where was the pub? Remember, even if 100% of all white people try to claim Irish descent, some of them are still Kiwis!

Oh fuck! I'll, uh, hold out hopes for a bit of giant-killing.

Nah, I don't have more than a glass or so left. I'll drink that glass, but if even nine glasses can't fuck up my typing, a single glass won't do squat. Looking forward to some cheese and crackers, though.

The pub's near the Imax. I was with ... I think it was Jen, cin, and Danny, before U2 3D. I'd forgotten the game was even on, and we walked in with about 10 minutes left to play and Ireland not looking too good, with pissed Irish/Aussie-wishing-they-were-Irish guys not looking all too happy about things. So I just kept quiet and went to the table and waited to hear the inevitable groans go up when the final whistle went and the All Blacks won ...

Considering the way Geelong's put away the two other sides even remotely close to them this past fortnight, you should feel good if they do you in by less than a 100. We get blitzed by 135 odd at Subi!

Ah, righto then. Got me Wexford poured - in a Stella Artois chime glass, so not exactly orthodox, but still appetising to look at. Which cheeses have you got set? I had a haloumi and feta roll for tea tonight - a bit too much hummus for my liking, but still nice.

Yeah, I hear that. I can just see you looking at the TV and silently smirking behind your glass of red, while the others watch, sort of disturbed. To be honest, I sometimes wonder the extent to which some of the "Irish" guys in Irish pubs are actually Irish. Most Aussies probably won't be able to tell the difference between a badly done stereotypical Cork accent and a Dublin one. And if you've had too much to drink and you're mainly Irish descent anyway - nothing rare for an Australian - then you can bullshit as much as you want.

Oh god. Geelong's not going to run roughshod over everybody again this year like they did last, are they? We don't need another boring grand final.

You going to drink enough to drunkpost? I thought of going up to buy another bottle of wine, but after pizza last night, I haven't enough money on me and there's no ANZ ATMs in the vicinity. I got slugged a $2 fee for using that other ATM before the Curry Vault and I'd rather avoid giving the bank another cent of my money if at all possible.

Haha, yeah. Honestly, I suspect almost none of them are Irish. Or have ever set foot in Ireland. Though that impression is drawn more from the Gold Coast, where not even the pub owners seem to be Irish, rather than somewhere like Melbourne.
