My DH is a Hawthorn supporter and were very lucky to given a package for the Grand Final at the MCG.
Our morning started early at 8am, Grand Final breakfast at Etihad Stadium hosted by my club, North Melbourne
On each place setting were footballs and The Football Record
On our way to the MCG in amongst a sea of purple for Freo.
Tina Arena (in red with the umpires) sang the National Anthem, the crowd was amazing, 100, 007 supporters all singing with booming voices.
The roar when the anthem is finished, is something you have to hear.
Half time, overlooking Rod Laver Tennis Stadium towards the city.
The rain held off, even though the wind was very cold. We were lucky to be sitting under cover.
John and I sat in with the Freo supporters. When the final siren sounded, I don't know who screamed louder him or me. Brilliant game and day with Hawtorn winning.
