The day's been okay. Good weather so I went for a long walk. After the joy of last night, South Aussies are crushed by the news the Grand Final won't be in Adelaide. I just hate all the flack I get from people when the Hawks lose, when in reality, I never say anything when we win. I've never been able to fathom the reason why.
This is a true story. After that first horrible loss to Adelaide in 1991, I copped it from everywhere. The CEO of our company made a special trip to my office to give me sh*t, and I'd never met him before!!! Later in the year when we belted Adelaide in Melbourne, everyone was waiting for me to pay back, but I said nothing
A Collingwood mate got stuck into me today. I said, "Well at least I can look back on the flags I've seen". He said, "Collingwood have won more". I said to him, "Yes, but I've actually seen the Hawks win 12 flags, how many Collingwood flags have you actually seen? Two?" End of conversation
