Fittingly on a stormy long weekend in Sydney it was the Melbourne Storm who won yesterday's Rugby League Grand Final. Ma, who adopted the Storm as her team for the occasion, was suitably happy.
I've attended countless Grand Finals over the years but this was only the second time she has seen one live. Apart from the overpowering noise levels, Ma had a great time. It was one of the less interesting finals for me mainly because the Storm were clearly too strong for almost all the of the match and the result seldom looked in doubt although to their credit the Parramatta Eels did fight back late in the match and momentarily raised their supporter's hopes of an upset.
It was not to be and the Storm deservedly won.
