Most people start their year on the 1st of January and let it run for 12 months. Not in our little household. No way. The year starts late March and runs until the last Saturday in September. All other ‘months’ are merely limbo-time.
And today is the start of the year. Game 1, Round 1. Footy’s back.
I’m wearing my Tiger’s tie, I’ve plastered the Tiges all over the intranet here at work and Rae’s wearing my Tiger jumper to her work. Rob and I have our plan all sorted for getting to the game tonight, supplies are ready and optimism is creeping back in, even if every alleged expert in The Age is tipping Collingwood to defeat Richmond tonight.
Best of all we get to do it all again come Sunday when the Doggies play.
Here’s to a great 2003. Carn the Tiges!
