I've never liked Qantas's sentimental advertising, trying to claim expat Aussie nostalgia for one company. Translating "I Still Call Australia Home" into an Aboriginal language makes the airline's use of the song even more obnoxious.
Just heard the national anthem, and couldn't help thinking that we've had a bit too much of that golden soil this week.
The Saints are choking big time at the start.
Riewoldt just managed the best non-mark I've ever seen.
The game's turning around - Geelong are bending, will they break? St. Kilda really need to make this pressure pay off.
St. Kilda are dominating, but that's about the fourth easy shot on goal they've missed.
And now their margin is less than a goal.
Ablett really is brilliant at everything - even milking the free kicks.
Quality match considering how wet it is.
Can you choke in front of your defensive goal? Because I think Zac Dawson just managed it.
Dawson's no longer the goat after seeing the replay. The goal umpire performed much worse.
Although Millburn's trying hard to be the goat by arguing that goal and giving away another.
Good point from the commentators - Geelong are still playing a dry weather game with all the handballs. Wonder if they'll change tactics in the second half?
Just saw an ad for the latest disaster movie. Really not looking forward to three years of hearing about the Mayan calendar's millennium bug.
Great commentary on Goddard: "He's OK, if you can can a bloody nose OK. Maybe it's even broken. In football terms it's probably still OK."
Amused by the fan who incorporated his white beard into the St. Kilda logo painted on his face.
Geelong seem to be dropping off here.
Great goal from Geelong. Shows how much I know.
Could that be the matchwinning goal from Montagne? Just feels like St. Kilda taking the lead at the end of that scoreless passage could make the difference.
Hope Geelong do pull this off. I like their open, active style of play, and if they only lose 2 out of 3 grand finals, nobody will try to play that way again.
Ooh, sunshine to go with the rain.
I don't know that Steve Johnson has managed anything productive this game.
Next goal wins, I think.
Great commentary in homage to Kipling: "Ablett kept his feet when all about him were losing theirs."
Still haven't had that decisive goal.
Now we have, and what a goal it was from Chapman. Can the Cats hang on?
Well, Johnson did well to force the ball over the line there.
Congrats, Geelong. That last goal was rubbing it in a bit, though.
