Grand Final Week: Get involved!

Ok everycat, it's finally here. AFL Grand Final Week! The Big Game is not until Saturday, but we've got a whole week to build up the anticipation. As promised, I'm gonna be sharing the finalists' creative entries with you. But there's more! Everycat can also enter my FABULOUS footy tipping competition. It's so easy! You don't have to know anything about footy to enter. All you have to do is give me your prediction on who you think is going to win the Grand Final, and guess the correct points margin. Here's a reminder of the contenders:
Daisy's Geelong Cats

versus

Sooty's Port Adelaide Power
So, your 'tip' (guess) will involve selecting 1) the team you think will win and 2) the correct points margin. As a rough guide, the last 10 grand finals have been decided by an average margin of approximately 29 points (29.1 points, to be precise). And don't forget to include your name! Here's an example of what I'm after:
Pablo, Port Adelaide, 57 points (not my actual prediction, just an example)

This competition is open to all cats and dogs and bunnies with blogs or Catster/Dogster IDs. Animals from multiple animal households can have separate entries. The only cats who can't enter are Sooty and Daisy, cause they're already gonna get awesome prizes for being grand finalists, and I wanna share the love around! The entrant who selects the correct team by the closest points margin will win; in the event of a tie, the entrant who posted first will be judged the winner. (PS I reserve the right to change these rules at any time, because I'm Pabs.) What do you win? A donation to the Hobart Cat Centre made in your name and a yet-to-be-determined kitty treat! Just post your entry in the comments to this post. Entries close at 2pm Eastern Standard (Australian) Time, this Saturday, 30 September.

Good luck, everycat! Ooh, I love September!

Cheers,
--Pabs
