football, I turn into a fanatical monster. The football I follow is AFL (Australian Rules Football League) and my team is Hawthorn, as that is the suburb 4 generations of my family lived in.
Today's match was against Sydney who are (were) the top team on the AFL ladder, with Hawthorn placed second. We played quite poorly in the begining and were still losing in the last minute, but by some miracle Hawthorn kicked 2 goals literally just before the final siren.
If you want to see what I am jibbering on about, have a look here. You can watch a short video summary of the match.
So now Hawthorn is at the top of the ladder and most likely will be in the Grand final, which is next month.Don't laugh, but I was so stressed in the last minutes thinking we were going to lose, that my blood pressure was through the roof. Really, I measured it on my blood pressure machine!
