Finals fever gripping Melbourne. Tonight, heading down to the Park Hotel to watch the first weekend blockbuster preliminary final between Geelong & Hawthorn. Most people picking the Hawks against a depleted & injured Geelong. I don’t know which way to go. Deep down I’m thinking the Hawks will kill it. But Geelong are renowned for their toughness & discipline. The Hawks have also not beaten Geelong for 5 years… (highlights from last weekend’s semi final, Sydney v Carlton below)

Tomorrow night, off to the Barkers with house-mate Scotty for the Sydney v Freo game live from Perth. The Bakers on Victoria Street Abbotsford is always an experience to behold. It gets pretty crazy in there – and not necessarily in a good way.

Fires out.
