Comebacks A Plenty

Comeback #1

Canucks, down 3-2 in game one of a best of seven series to advance to the next round of playoffs. Clock ticking down, crowd roaring, time running out then suddenly a shot – the game is tied with 1 second left on the clock! The game goes in to sudden death overtime where we score and win 4-3 to go 1-0 up in the series. Best part – the goal was scored by Trent Klatt – a native of Minessota – against whom we were playing.

Comeback #2

And I was at this one. The Tigers were pathetic. Down 51 points at the 22 minute mark of the second quarter and we’re all thinking of hitting the train to go home. Then we scored a goal. The another. And another – in the second half we scored 12 unanswered goals, and in total 14 goals to 2 to effect our greatest ever turnaround of 71 points to win the game (Tigers website listing of the goals). We were absolutely delirious as we left the game, singing our magnificent anthem as we marched down the ramps, smiling from ear to ear. Hawthorn players slunk from the ground to boos from the few Hawks supporters left as we Tiger followers bellowed through two rounds of ‘Tigerland’. For one glorious night we are top of the ladder and the world is a wonderful place.

  1. Funny that. I nearly fell off my chair when I heard the final score and how it was achieved. Usually it’s Richmond going for broke in the first half and then giving it away to the opposition in the second.

    Nice that it happened to someone else for a change!

    And to think: we’re second on the ladder!! I’m savouring this moment.
