That’s why I love football.
Last night every player played for the team and for Spud to deliver a fantastic one point win. I don’t think we stopped cheering from when Hall took the mark on the line until after the third rendition of the mighty Tigers glorious anthem. My heart was thumping from the first minutes as we piled on the goals, through the Hawks come back and up to the heart attack inducing final minutes as we clung to the lead.
Passion, commitment, skill and the Tiger fans roaring in delight. Who could ask for more? It was so exciting I think I replayed the whole game at least three times as I lay in bed trying to get to sleep.
Next week I’ll go back to tipping them.
