Last Gasp

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, August 24, 2007 with 2 comments
At training last night were Bronwyn, Colin, Gary, Geoff B, me, Katie, Ken, Maria, Matthew, Rod and Roger - eleven runners, the fewest we have had, although it was good conditions for running, but the threat of rain may have deterred a few. Come on, it never rains! We ran 12 x 200m in teams of three.

Can we win?
This is possibly my only AFL post this year. With two weeks of the minor round left, we - the Mighty Adelaide Crows - can still win the premiership! Teams from second down are all very even, and we may just have hit form at the right end of the season. We simply have to win six more in a row and we are there! It does depend on some other results for us to make the finals, but all we need is two of the following to happen - St Kilda lose at least one of their two remaining games; Sydney both; Collingwood both; Kangaroos both. It is very likely, given the draw, that two of these possibilities do happen; so it is up to us to win. We are good enough.

Then in the finals, as long as we don't meet Geelong in the preliminaries, and we don't travel away to Perth, we can get to the Grand Final, where anything can happen.

On the way, it would be good to get an "away" final against Port Adelaide! Thus cancelling their "advantage".

So for your "game" this week, watch the Crows eliminate Brisbane in Adelaide!

Go The Crows!


"Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter East."


  1. As far as I am aware, the Crows v Lions game is in Adelaide.

    The Lions have been playing very well the last six weeks, so I wouldn't be counting on an easy game, although you would imagine the Crows should start favourites.

    As for the flag, both teams are dreaming.

  2. Oops, in Adelaide, all the better. Correction made. And yep, we're dreaming, some dreams come true!!!
