If you moved to Melbourne in Victoria you would get asked what AFL (Australia Footbal League) team are you supporting.  I can't get away that easily when I'm surrounded by AFL supporters both men and women I'm working with. I love sport, but don't have any favorite. I just enjoy the activities of it. Today is AFL Grand Final Take II because we had a draw last Saturday and the AFL's rule is that you cannot have extra time. So here we go again for another Grand Final between St Kilda (the St.) and Collingwood (the Magpies). 
Collingwood on the left and St Kilda on the right 

The game should be on about now. It's a good time to be out and about knowing that you will have the road to yourself because everyone or almost everyone would be packed in the MCG watching the match. I might turn on the TV to see how the game is going. Which team am I supporting? Well, I have put $2.00 with my work colleagues for Collingwood so I guess if Collingwood wins, I will get my $2.00 back. Go MAGPIES...! 
The Magpies supporters are sitting on the sideline cheering their team. 
The St. supporters were out by the thousands cheering their team on at the pre-game parade in the city. Even non supporters cannot help but get enthusiastic looking at this photo.

This is what they are hoping to get at the end of the match. Good luck guys!

I'm pleased to tell you that I blogged about last year's Grand Final here. Yes Not Just Nat, the name suited me. Culturally I am interested in most things. You can learn about anything if you put your mind to it. I'd better go and watch the game...!

Hello Nat,

Spend your $2.00 wisely. I went out for afternoon tea today so missed it. Last week was exciting.

Happy Sunday.
