Stormy days

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.

  1. Although I did not watch it I did hear that it was televised live on Nine down here, had good ratings, but would you believe that as soon as the game was won, they crossed to the News, there was nothing of the after game presentation.

    You guys drinking your tea out of saucers now?? Lost all your Cups...ahahahahaha
