I won the bet!!!

Recommended Posts

For those of you who listen to the Demonland Podcast you might be familiar with the bet I had with my brother in law and my nephews. At the start of the year (pre-Round 1) we made a bet that whoever finished higher would have the pleasure of eating a family dinner whilst the loser wore the winners guernseys.

I wasn't confident when I made the bet. I knew we would improve but Geelong are Geelong and with the exception of 2015 they had finished in the Top 4 for the better part of a decade.

I also had the 2 narrow losses to hear all about throughout the year and boy did I cop it. Not only did I have to hear the Cats song blasted through my phone but those losses were 2 8 point games in our bet. A win in either of those games would have given me victory a lot earlier.

Listeners of the podcast would know how nervous I was of winning this bet particularly in the last few rounds when the Cats had an easy run home and we had the draw from hell.

Well the result is history now as we all know the Dees did not let us down.

Victory was mine but now we faced them in the Elimination Final and even though they would shortly be delivering on the bet it would all be for naught if I had to eat dinner with them in Melbourne gear whilst they gloated about their victory in the Finals. If the roles were reversed and I lost the bet but won the final I would have happily (sort of) eaten in a Cats jumper whilst I talked smack about their team.

Anyway, that was a moot point because yesterday they delivered on the bet and I couldn't have been happier. I got to eat and gloat and watch them squirm in red and blue.

Shoutout to my sister in law who was not part of the bet but wore the red and blue well.

Don't you just love the look on their faces in this pic! Gotta say though, you look a bit nonplussed at it all.

Believe me tears of joy are being shed under the mask. 

Side note: I lost my voice roaring towards them (in the general direction of where I knew they were sitting 30 bays away) after Hannan's goal.

I have put a fair bit of money at good odds on the Dorks for this week’s match and for the flag! The poor bastards don’t know they are doomed to failure at some stage this final series.
