5 hours of coverage of the AFL Grand Final began at 9pm MST here, tonight.

The pregame entertainment was decent. Vance Joy was decent, The Living End rocked out with an added string quartet on one song, then Sting did 3 short songs.

Sydney Swans started the game with a goal and 2 singles after 10 minutes of scrambled back & forth play.
Then the Western Bulldogs responded with two goals of their own, to take the lead 12 - 8 after the first quarter.

It's 11:10pm now, and I'm going to bed.

Go Bullies!

They're much more dangerous as they now have surplus MiG 21s.

89 - 67 for Perth!

Sounds like I should have stayed up until 1am to see it.



Western Bulldogs are champs-- congrats!

We in the US got screwed.

All season long, we got 2-3 matches a week on Fox Sports 1 and/or Fox Sports 2, including most all of the Finals matches.

The Grand Final was aired on Fox Sports Plus, a premium channel! And since I'm not subscribed to it...no Grand Final.

That is a great loss, because this was the best GF for the last ten years - incredible rise by an underdog team, and the scores were neck-and-neck the whole game. Most recent finals have been one-sided and dull. I'm no Bulldog fan, but it was wonderful to see them win.

Got a recap on the football guild here on BGG. Sounds like it was a classic! Big win for an underdog team is always a great storyline for everyone (except for the team that loses to said underdog).

Congrats to the erstwhile Footscray for ending their 62-year drought!
