    Driving around the streets of one of the leafy eastern suburbs this morning I saw approximately 30 houses and shops decorated with Melbourne paraphenalia and one home in Western Bulldogs colours. More disconcertingly, I saw a BMW with the number plate "BONT" and also this gentleman. Impressive style.

  2. Grand final day in Melbourne forecast 14 degrees, early showers and windy. Not a good day for our fully vaxxed picnics.

    Still, our extended demon supporting family will meet at a park for a couple of hours for beers and whatever food we can keep down, to help kill those peak anxiety pre game hours.

    "I can't sit here and watch these bastards win one before us"..

    I feel that way too, but more about Carlton and Essendon, whose arrogance from success permeated my formative years. 
    As the Covid damage became clear I consoled myself that it was ok if we didn’t win, because we couldn’t be there. But now we’re so close, I desperately want it (like everyone), they are SO hard to win. 
    The cruelest part is that we’re not allowed to be with our demon friends and family. That part really hurts.

  4. I spoke with the Bannerlady.com.au, thanks to Andy for the supplier. He said (banner man) they will have some more product on website on Monday. Basically the original banner in thirds, Clarrie, max and the Dees emblem all available separately. Good if you need something smaller. 
    also he’s going to make me a new flag, current one worn out from flying so much in 2021 ❤️💙❤️💙❤️

    Is it just me or does anyone else think that the Nylex Silos by the Yarra need a full length Max Gawn? Rent a projector someone and light it up at night if we don't have time to paint one. Am going to be pushing this on SEN hopefully next week.

    Brilliant idea

    I made the mistake of watching offsiders on the ABC on Sunday morning.

    Kellie Underwood started by calling Geelong the oldest club in the competition (maybe she was talking about the players?)

    And then trotted out the grand final match up between the working class Bulldogs and the Melbourne inner city elite.

    this fifty year old stereotyping drives me nuts.

    Try some original thinking Kellie (and checking your facts)

  7. It’s hard to know what I’ll do to kill the time before the game. Probably some form of Mazer’s day.

    I really wish Dan would allow some big screens in parks etc or at the G for the fully vaccinated to watch together. It could be managed in a Covid safe way, and be such a great thing for us long locked down Melbournians .

    if the govt think that people, particularly dees supporters won’t get together with family and friends to watch, they are seriously dreaming. 
    I totally get why we need lockdowns etc, etc, as much as I loathe them, but I really don’t understand why we can’t allow things that can be done safely. I know it’s not fair for the unvaccinated, or those that haven’t had the opportunity yet, but what is fair about Covid? Instead I think we’ll get a big fat lecture and threats next week about not getting together for the GF.

    It is so imperative we beat the Cats on Friday just to peg this man down a notch. He’s complained all year, made ridiculous excuses for Geelong’s performances at every turn, and made disrespectful comments such as his team didn’t care about winning because there was no home final on offer after they lost to us.

    Now he’s come out and bagged Larkins after scoffing at Stewart‘s extremely unlikely return from a serious lisfranc injury which at times has forced players into early retirement. Please for the good of the game, Dees - put this man back in his box.

    Scott says some pretty dumb things for an intelligent person. So reactive. 
    Just ignore Chris. Deep breath, aah, that’s better isn’t it?

    I’m gathering it won’t be what was written on Fitzroy’s banner in round 9 of 1981. (Google it) 😵💫

    I’d forgotten. Wow! Good on them, at least they went down screaming 

  10. You are all so hip, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed, but loving reading and lots to try on Spotify 

    Husband’s prepared a late 70s/early 80s playlist for his 40th year high school reunion (omg), which he’s unleashing tonight. So it’s Wednesday night, on our second bottle of red, listening to nostalgia. bit of dancing happening 🕺

    Work tomorrow, but whatever, it’s lockdown and every day feels the same.
