    Love to hear how everyone intends on celebrating the Grand Final this year. My 3 kids have jumped on the Richmond bandwagon this year and today we picked up 30 yellow balloons and 30 black balloons. They also found the yellow and black crepe paper.

    Big walk on gf morning with a mate, followed by the purchase of some premium meat for the bbq, might grab some stone and wood, put some bets on and enjoy a great GF with the family.

    Nino, that's the world's longest ever euphemism for "I'm getting pissed".

    Wife is working, couldn't find a sitter - I'll be running my kids silly in the morning so that they sleep during the GF. God help them if they wake up

    Run or surf at sunrise (depending on conditions), have a Coffee, read the paper, trip to Dan's, chill/max out for a few hours, then upstairs to the 65 inch TV where Dad, my sister's fiancé and I will not be disturbed until after the final siren.

    Made a mistake and rostered myself on a 12 hour shift on Saturday. Will have to time my breaks to watch maybe the 1st and last quarter.

    Make some warm cheesy taco bean dip, a bag of chips, West Coast Coolers and a trip to the toilet after the siren. Perfect

    I don't know whose bright idea it was to schedule a grand final for 5:30am. I've quite enjoyed having all these twilight games in the last few years, they're much easier.

    Nonetheless I guess I'll try to wake up. No promises.

    My wife scheduled my daughters birthday party for 2.30 this Saturday. Her birthday is in December.

    So my day will be filled with self loathing.

    The usual for me

    Eat a lot of food that's really bad for me, drink too much beer and do a lot of yelling at the TV.

    I will be able to enjoy the grand final this year. Last year Richo ruined it when he said (confidently) on the pre-game show that John Barker would be our coach ahead of Fages.

    Grand final day and Boxing Day are my favourite days of the year.

    I made the mistake in the hawthorn freo grand final where I went to a mates party and 80% of the people didn't care about footy. So throughout the game people were asking me "how's work? How's your family? What you been up to" and I was like "serious?!? Now!!! It's the third quarter" so I vowed that day, that my wife and I would make grand final day "selfish day", won't see anyone, won't go anywhere, won't invite anyone over, just us two, our deck, beer, wine and some nice meat for the grand final

    I wish my wife would show some sort of interest in football. But that ain't gonna happen.
    So I will just watch it at home all on my own, beer in hand.
    Unless I get an invite from Billy Puller, to The Brown dog's house.
