First of all, I'd like to thank everycat who entered my AWESOME Footy Finals Fever Competition. But second of all, I'd like to apologise to everycat, cause I think I made it a bit too hard... I only had seven entries! It was my first go at designing a competition... I think I got a bit carried away. Sorry!
Anyway, here are the finalists, and their corresponding AFL team:
1st place-- Daisy (50 points) GEELONG CATS
2nd place-- Sooty (50 points)* PORT ADELAIDE POWER
3rd place-- Hot(M)BC (49 points) WEST COAST EAGLES
4th place-- Gypsy & Tasha (47 points) (NORTH MELBOURNE) KANGAROOS
5th place-- Yoggie (44 points) HAWTHORN HAWKS
6th place-- Faz (42 points) COLLINGWOOD MAGPIES
7th place-- Phoebe & Monica (42 points)* SYDNEY SWANS
(In the case where two entrants scored equal points, the entrant who submitted their entry first was awarded the higher place)
Now, the AFL has a final eight, so I thought I'd award 8th place to our good friend Karl. Even though he didn't submit an entry, I thought that playing in the finals might lift his spirits at this sad time. Karl's team is the ADELAIDE CROWS.
Now to this weekend's finals matches...
Friday 7 September: PORT ADELAIDE v WEST COAST (AAMI Stadium, Adelaide)
Saturday 8 September: HAWTHORN v ADELAIDE (Telstra Dome, Melbourne)
COLLINGWOOD v SYDNEY (MCG, Melbourne)
Sunday 9 September: GEELONG v KANGAROOS (MCG, Melbourne)
The aim of this weekend's finals is to reduce the number of finalists from 8 to 6, so the two lowest-ranked losers will be eliminated.
Congratulations to all the entrants! Get behind your team! Sing your song! Show your colours on your blog! I'll keep everyone up to date on the results. And I'll share some of the finalists' creative entries in the coming weeks.
I can feel that finals fever coming on...
