I’m not a Richmond supporter, but of course my heart was with them in the Grand Final. However, I wasn’t optimistic, and I told the newsagent last week that the Tigers ought to enjoy the celebrations after winning their Preliminary Final because things would be different after the Grand Final.
But I was wrong, I’m pleased to say. However, we weren’t watching. Due to an oversight on my part, I had booked an MTC play for 4 pm on the Saturday afternoon! We left for the theatre at quarter-time, when the Crows were ahead. Only at the interval did we find out that at three-quarter time, the Tigers had a convincing lead, and by the time the play had finished, the result was known.
However, the match was replayed next day, so we watched the last part of it then.
Well done Tigers!
