three tim lane comments during that quarter: "they can do no wrong!" and "this is not how it was meant to be" (think that last one is the quote) ... and of course "... and the swans are in the grand final!" ...
that quarter just got better and better and, compared to the tension of the previous week, it was a spectacular celebration of that swans team

My best ever moments have already been mentioned, these are a few favourites from the last few years that were unexpected and I totally loved...

I was at the first two, would have loved to have been at the third!

I like how two of these highlights were round 1 matches.

After the end of this season, (when I started to get over the elimination final loss), I watched some highlights from this year to soothe the pain...or torture myself.... We also had a great game in round 1 this year vs Brisbane. (would post highlights video if I knew how to).. You could really see how our system of play started to click in to gear, against a good team as well. And we did it with 3 debutants.

I'll never forget watching plugger kick the point in 1996 to put us into the grand final. My wife and I danced around the loungeroom for at least 10 minutes. It was an event I thought I would never experience.
However, as great as that was, it didn't match the euphoria of the 2005 grand final win. There was about 15 of us (all family) in the standing room area under the great Southern stand. We'd been told on the radio 5 minutes previously that there was only a minute to go. The stress of having to defend again and again and again was unbearable.
When Leo took his mark and the siren went, I knew for the first time, was absolute jubilation felt like. We hugged each other again and again together with anyone else wearing red and white. Queen's "we are the champions" never sounded better. I lost my voice singing that song. Every time I hear it now, that memory returns.

2005 semi vs Geelong was pretty special. I was up in the Clive Churchill stand with my old man and it was prime viewing for the Nick Davis show in the last qtr. Will never forget how loud the SCG was when he put us in front with seconds to spare.

2005 was the best year to be a supporter. :cool: Swans 2005 Premiers, Liverpool won the Champions League, and Glasgow Rangers won the Scottish Premiership in the most dramatic fashion possible, known as 'Helicopter Sunday' :thumbsu:
