The Melbourne Bucket-List Item 1.

Attend an AFL Game

So on Friday night I begrudgingly crossed-off the first item on my Melbourne Bucket-List. I had hoped for a win for my last footy game in Melbourne but alas, Carlton played the first half like an Under 13’s team from the outer eastern suburbs instead of a professional level AFL team. It happens. So Hawthorn won. I was also disappointed the game was at Etihad Stadium and not my beloved MCG. Ho-hum. Hopefully there will be a final in Perth which I can attend.

If I ever mentioned AFL to friends while overseas I got one of two reactions “Ohh yeah, like rugby” or “That game with no rules”. Whaaaaaatever. We don’t need global recognition.
