We were lucky in Tassie to have nicer weather for the AFL grand final than in Melbourne. The boys were excited to have our usual 'footy party' with the works - pies, sausage rolls, savs, hot dogs, potato chips, fizz and lollies. I think they enjoy the food more than the actual game - some of them anyway! As usual Aaron is totally into it, yelling and getting very stressed.
Thank goodness Hawthorn aren't in it this year again - I don't think I could handle the stress again. It's nice having Chrish here as well as Aaron's Dad who always joins us to watch the grand final. I'm sure Chrish will think twice about watching the grand final with us again - Aaron can be pretty intense!
Before the game started and at half time the boys went out for a kick on the street. After Harri started stressing about getting run over by a car they had lots of fun. We even had to fight the neighbours for a bit of the street to play on during half time. I love the atmosphere on grand final day - seeing all the houses done up and everyone out buying their savs, pies and drinks.
The neighbours were having a grand final BBQ with their friends and some guy kept calling out 'see! They are still loyal' (to his girlfriend) as the boys were in their Hawks gear.
