Up at 4.30AM, 3YO sensing tension

5.30AM "Dad can we go feed the goats, pick some mulberries and avos and check the planets?"

Drove all around Lismore with Dees scarf out window.

Old bloke at work caught me at entrance with a chuckle seeing my scarf - "good luck tonight"

It's Australia Vs the Hawks.

Will be watching on from Indonesia. Nervous as hell. Go you Demons. An Indonesian guy here said good luck for your team. So its now The World Vs The Hawks !

Still a little concerned tonight as I think our meeting earlier this year wouldve occured even with the 7 or so players now in. They got us on the spread as we overcommitted to the ball. And we probably still will play the same way. If it's a close game, then the Hawks simply don't lose them.

Either way I'm not expecting any one result and will be pleased with the year in it's totality. Will of course be stressed tonight, but I think a weight has been lifted since last week. Apologies for not being manic with premiership fever!

They got us because we played dumb footy in the wet. Different team now.

Hawthorn were a different team in the second half of the year as they got on a big winning streak too. Can't count them out merely because we're a different team and weather won't be wet. Expecting a big fight tonight to win

Fox Footy playing 2017 Melb Hawks. Scores level half way through the last. We looked ok, but Gee there’s a lot of players not in our current team for various reasons. Watts, Bugg, Pedo, JKH, Jeffy, Bernie, Jesse, Hunt, Wagner. And it was only last year, and we thought that side was pretty good at the time.

Nowhere near as nervous today as I was last Friday at this time, not sure if that is a good thing or not. Can't wait for the roar as the game gets underway. I really think we've got this. We never looked like relenting last week, I can't see us taking a step back tonight. We have more talent on the ground and a game plan that stacks up well in finals. Of course we could lose, any team in the eight could lose on any given day, but I don't think we will.

Bring it on!

This is exactly how I feel today.

Mind you, I'm heading to the G wearing the same clothes, at the same time, eating the same pre-game food, going to the same gate, just to be sure haha

Well I've reached the 'feel the need to vomit' stage now. 

1 of 2 urgent things I needed to finalise today at work are done. Now just waiting to finish a few things with China, and their 2 hour time delay is really stressing me out. Don't they know the footy is on tonight?! 

 

On the plus side, the lucky charm is coming tonight. Last week he told me pre-game we would win by around 36 points and he wasn't far off. This morning he said we will win by 2 goals.

Opposite for me, Hawks a far tougher opponent. Our hunger though is dead-set palpable!!

Anxious & doing FA at work - a normal day for me.

Jordan Lewis lifted for his 300th and was very good last week except for one lucky moment.  I expect him to really give it all tonight.

Another who is nervous as hell despite being simultaneously confident. I hate it when we are:

1) outright favourites, and/or 

2) Garry Lyon picks us!

it has rarely augered well for us in the past!

This also means Ty Vickery could be a late in also....

Yeap, Imperial has cheap pints too. Now we’re heading to the rooftop at the Corner.

I believe so....

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but players are not removed from the list until OCT. 

Hence they still can be selected. 

What a selection bombshell it would be if they picked Cyril...

Super nervous and keen for a beer 8 hours before Gawny jumps.

Will try and time my run.

We've been pumped up so much this week. Trying to put all of those big games we've blown over the last decade out of my mind.

This team has transformed, this team has transformed.......


To all those heading there tonight. Soak it in and yell your guts out.
Go Dees!
