Its now been 2 days since Collingwoods win in round 11 and I’m sure that I’m not the only one whos still talking about the win and happy to see the boys not only winning, but playing great football.
As it was a Pies home game I was there, but the story surrounding the night is a bit more complex than usual. This week we played the Cats on Friday night at the Telstra Dome. Gaynor is a Cats member and decided to organise a group of Cats and Pies people to go watch the game together. So there were a heap organised to go. Puss, Anita, Dave, Nicola, Gaynor and Me, along with a couple of others from Gaynors work.
But in the process of planning Friday night, Puss found out that the game was a sellout and we all wouldn’t be able to go.. But as Gaynor and I were members we should have been able to get in as long as we were there early enough to get a seat.
So the plan was for Gaynor and I to meet at about 5:30 and find a seat somewhere.
That all changed when I got a call from work and Kate said that there were 3 Medallion Club tickets available for the game if I was interested.. Was I interested… of course I was.. So I picked up the tickets from Scott in the city and he told me that they were the best seats in the place.. I wasn’t too sure about that but when I got there and met up with Gaynor we soon saw that they were.
Level 2 seats 52 and 53 in Row A, asile 13.. Thats front row, level 2 directly on the wing. I’ve got some photos, but there from my phone so not sure how good they will be. I also can’t put them up here yet as I don’t have the IR cable for the phone, but i’ll post them soon.
Anywho, onto the game.. And what a great game it was.. We kicked away early and it was only a late charge in the first quarter that made it look a lot closer than it really was.
But it was the second quarter that we opened up kicking 6.4 to geelongs 1.2. So in for a beer at 1/2 time feeling great sitting on a 7 goal lead.
As expected the Cats came out hard after the long break and clawed the gap back to 5 goals heading into the final quarter, and all tho the cats did win the final quarter by a goal we still ran out victors by 4 goals.
A great game, well played by Didak kicking 5 straight and really opening up the forward line. So now we wait till the Queens Birthday game against Melbourne next Monday. Lets hope we can make it 4 in a row.
